Mine was pulled out on 12/30 last year. They weren't pulling the big ones though, I have an 8x12.

A lot depends on where on the lake you’re located and construction of the house. I have a 10’ x 20’ put out on December 23rd last year.

My house (8x16) is out of Lyback's on the SE side of the lake, and it generally goes out right around Christmas. Two years they actually were putting houses out all day on Christmas including mine. Guess where I was on Christmas night?

If you were single at the time, you spent the night fishing. If you're married, you probably spent the night in the Emergency Room after suggesting spending the night out fishing..... grin.gif

It all depends on Mother Nature.....

Your area is usually one of last places to pull out big houses, the south bays freeze up first.....I wouldn't get my hopes up for December but ya never know......Ice heaves and cracks are also a factor....

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
