Has anyone esle fished it this year (or ever). I ventured out from the TF Loins Park launch in about 27 ft and got skunked. The ice was a solid 10-12inches (where I was). I didn't wander around to much though. Anyone esle? I never really see any one esle out, up that way.

I've fished it in the past without success. I still want to give another go, though. Maybe when the weather warms up just a little bit in a couple of weeks. If I plan on going, I'll fire a post off in advance.

While I was out there I had a park ranger walk out to see if I was catching anything. He said he'd fished up closer to the dam (to the right facing the dam) there is a retaining wall that has produced crappies in the past. I'd be worried about ice conditions myself. Let me know if you get out there.

Did you happen to catch the ranger's name? There was a guy named Rod out there on patrol several years ago- heck of a nice guy. That area above the dam is where I have gone in the past. The ice is pretty good in that bay, but I wouldn't go it alone, at least without the standard first ice survival stuff. I would think that bay should produce fish of many species.

I beleive his first name was Rod. Extremly nice, very willing to share his knowledge of the river. I have noticed that, that bay froze up way before the main river, so the ice should be good with all the cold weather. Must be a place to get on the bay right off the road there I bet. He mentioned some sort of structure such as a old log anchering post? Thanks for the response's.

Moose,

If he is indeed the same ranger that I used to know, he is chock full of information and an avid fisherman as well. I have even fished with him during his off duty times. There is a bunch of structure in that little bay, mostly dead heads left over from the logging era and from floods. He told me that there are cribs in there as well. I'm starting to get a major itch to get back out there grin.gif

      Way to go.  We got into them this weekend also but wow was travel difficult in spots.  We drove wheelers out onto two lakes and took an hour to get off of one lake.

      Fished out of Morris Pt 1/2 day Friday and all of Sat. and it was bad.  5 of us kept a total of 5 fish.  Fished in 32 ft Fri, 28 ft Sat and 21 ft. at sunset.  Marked a lot but I'm pretty sure they were little ones or tullibee.  Access was pretty beat up when we left Sat. night.  Got checked by DNR and they said everyone that they checked had the same results as us.

      Mike has been in the business for more then 30 years and also use to teach it up at Pine City Voc Tech.  He does it all.  The crappie and a few others he did for me. Lighting not the best. Tell him Steve A, from Brooklyn Center sent you. May be he will give you a $1 off! 😄

      Yeah north side of Co Rd 35 close to the road(Co Rd 176 (?))  that comes back south from the church. You must've caused quite a ruckus down  there as I see they're still lookin for ya as the poster is back up.

      I've read about the mail boat in the past, and it sounds like a great operation.   My water-access neighbors just had a PO Box in town and would pick up their mail on a semi-regular basis. At my estimate, 95% of mail that arrives is junk so you probably aren't missing much by picking it up once per week.
