Meat-run,

I read on another post (cant remember the name of it) that there is a crack about 50 yards out or so and there is a bridge accross it. After that it said the ice was good with no crack. This is second hand info as I remember it. Keep that in mind. If you look thru the posts from the last few days you should find it.

good luck, let us know how you do.

Jim

eyebjim and farmfishing,

thanks for the help. Yes I did see that about the crack at 50 yards out and not concerned about it at all. But will wait with anticipation on your report Farmfishing. Oh, one question for you how long have you lived in New Hope? I was born and raised in Crystal.

I just returned from that area last nite and can tell you that the ice is in good shape. I measured 16-18 inches in all of the areas that you mentioned.

A buddy and I went through on a 4 wheeler Fri night south east of Myr Mar on the way out to 8 mile. Trailer kept us up. We had been fishing in this area for weeks. Be careful of the cracks and heaves. We took our time and checked ice the past few weeks and still managed to find a week spot. Be safe.

Fishing was slow in my opinion. Walleyes were mainly active after dark along with with a few nice perch. Fished deeper edges of mud flats, with mixed success. The rocks were uneventful for me, did get to witness someone's ice house burning into a skeleton out on Myr Mar rocks! Sorry to whoever that belongs to.

Meatrun On three mile i have 16 inches at the shanty i explored out to the inner and outer tips of eight mile had 14inches out there. I started workin my honey holes on my way in the perch are starting to school up a little more out past 4 mile I consider this a mile from my fish house. The perch all 20 that i caught were from 10 to 12 in not huge but tasted good this morning. I found no less than 14inches of ice any where i was and we drilled close to 150 holes to stay on the fish. As for the eyes they were there but extreamly lathargic nothing on the jiggin rods shiner and a hook one on a dead stick and three on tip ups 24 fow. Garrison sports or myr mar both have roads out there i didnt find any major cracks out here but it was extreamly windy good luck too All and be safe conditions change often.

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
