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.

      Women can hike to spectacular views of autumn colors and Lake Superior on the horizon during a three-day fall workshop that teaches a variety of outdoor skills through the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Getting to that view includes 330 feet of elevation gain on the Superior Hiking Trail – the kind of physical and mental challenge known well to Jo Swanson, trail development director for the Superior Hiking Trail Association and the keynote speaker for the fall workshop. “One of my themes is empowerment – learning to overcome fears of adventuring in the outdoors,” Swanson said. “We live in a culture of fear and people react strongly when women go on outdoors adventures, especially when they go alone. The truth is that with planning and preparation, the outdoors can be a very safe place.” The fall workshop is Friday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 16, in a new location this year at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center near Finland, Minn. Attendees will hear from Swanson and Minnesota state park naturalists. Session topics include Ojibwe heritage, Voyageurs, archery, canoeing, and the animals, plants and geology of the North Woods. Linda Bylander, coordinator of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program, said that along with the new location, the workshop offers a new selection of classes this year. “Women who attend the fall workshop gain a whole range of experiences in a supportive environment,” Bylander said. “We chose dates when the fall colors should provide a beautiful backdrop. The workshop is designed for women ages 18 and up but girls ages 14 to 17 are welcome to attend with parents or guardians. Visit mndnr.gov/bow for more information and to register.

      Quite a strong bite for the Streiffs tourney. I think there were 20 or so over 28", with the biggest weighing 10 3/4. Last year I think there were five overs. The boats were spread all over the lake. Many were fishing the mud, a few were quite shallow and some on the rocks. Most guys spoke of slot fish like crazy......but roughly 1 out of 6 boats having a 28" plus is crazy!! The stage got a bit crowded when the big fish catchers got up there for a picture.

      They can go on opener like everyone else does instead of pre-emptively scaring the local ducks out of the area.

      Congratulations!.  I am sure it's a bittersweet time for you.  All the best!
    • Wanderer
      My recollection of Sylvia is it being a nice, clean looking lake that would have nice views.  Bass were plentiful when I last fished it but ran pretty small on the weedlines.  You had to fish the slop to get better sized bass.  Couldn’t tell you a thing about walleyes there. I agree with Tom, Clearwater is a more dynamic fishery.

      We had to cut the hooks on one of my fish this year.  Caught on a Cisco Kid, 2 of 3 sets of trebles in the fish.  Just by how they were twisted, the leverage made removal by pulling very difficult and the fish would thrash when I attempted to work them out.  Made the decision pretty easy to cut the hooks. I’m honestly considering going barbless on everything.  Half the time the lure shakes free in the net anyway so the pressure is what keeps them buttoned until netted.  The plus is if one of us gets one in the hand when working on a netted fish, it won’t hurt so bad getting it out!
    • Wanderer
      Thanks for the feedback.   We have the time from hookset to release pretty short I think.  I read earlier this spring the average fight these days lasts 90 seconds or less.  I’ll admit I was amazed to hear that but after a half dozen muskies that have come to net this year, that’s no bull.  We usually have em netted on the first pass by the boat.  My 48 inch net allows one to do all the handling in the water while the other gets the bump board laid out and phone ready for a pic. A quick measure and quick pics and back in the water they go. Thats about as much as we can do.  70 degrees is lower than I expected to hear.  We were seeing those temps on opening weekend in Ontario.  We didn’t like seeing 80 last Friday on Leech.

      What do you think of the "cut the hooks" method of dealing with Muskies?   Small bolt cutters to make the process fast.   Just wondering.  
    • guideman
      Typically temps over 70 degrees are considered dangerous for handling Muskies. The length of the fight and the time you take handling the fish will make a difference. That is one of the reasons we use heavy line and big rods, you don't want to battle the fish to the death. Skip photos on smaller fish and remove the hooks with the fish in the net, in the water, not on the bottom of the boat. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Sylvia would have been my 1st choice, until it recently was discovered to have Stary Stonewart. Pretty devastating invasive. I'd bet Clearwater holds a state record large mouth bass. It also has strong walleye year classes.
