reel man

I'm guessing that thurs. nights storms are going to make the root and zumbro high and dirty.The worst fishing condition there is,is chocolate water.Anyone with thoughts on what might still be fishable,besides reservoirs?Does anyone live close to any of the streams to give us a report? Also I would like to add to a comment I saw yesterday on giving away honey holes.The web site itself allows us to share info so we can enjoy what we all learn.The hope I have is that those of us here if we are treading into others areas of fortune will enjoy,but return all fish to the water so it can remain what it was.I know that everyone does not do this ,but I believe that if we are learning from others on this forum,we should.Fish populations can be a difficult balance.Over population can be bad also.

Ike,

Usually any luck had post cold front is deeper and TIGHT to cover while fishing slowly.

So fishing deep in the weeds or right near the base of trees or in a big cluster of trees.

Plastics fished slowly or live bait are your best bets.

It is usually real tough fishing, no doubt, but fish can be caught.

I usually have better luck fishing the evening after the cold front goes through. The fish seem to wake up some after being in a funk all day. Not that it is great fishing, but it is better than it was during the day.

But, perkins is always a viable option!

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
