My ice house made MN Bound, hehe

Recommended Posts

BoxMN

Me and neighbors made a 6x9 ice house cheap this year, and put it out. It is white with a big red + (plus) running top to bottom, and side to side down the whole thing. We did it so nobody would hit it at night, and also because we used all "old spare" paint from our paint shelves, and the red + is actually just pine boards where we connected the sections together. Anyway, we saw it on MN Bound last night with some artist taking photos of ice houses he thought were cool, on a story about "ice house art".

So we are artists without even knowing it! Now my wife can't tell me I can't keep it behind the garage this summer, because it is my "art"!!! ha!

I laughed hard when Schara used it to close that section of the story, and the narrator said it looked like someone wrapped up a big present and left it on the ice. That's what we were laughing about when we painted it, that someone would take it away like a present out there!

It would only be logical that the next move for your shack would be right next to the Cherry and Spoon sculpture in Minneapolis! All you have to do is call something "art" and you can sell it for big $$ smile.gif!

Too bad art can't catch fish! Just kidding. You are doing well for a rookie. Pam let me go up to the cabin alone this weekend and fish for two days alone since the septic is frozen and she needs a flush toilet. I got a good number of 14 - 15" crappies on a small secret lake I fish up that way. I got all the big crappies on small shiners on tip-ups but could not get them to hit waxies or spoons on the fishing rod. All I could get on the rod was small 9 - 10" crappies on about every drop when it got dark. I used up 2 dozen or more shiners on the tip-ups for the crappies. It was the best night of crappie fishing I have ever had and I let most of them go so the fishing stays good in this little lake. I am hitting Green Lake for the last weekend of game fish season and after that we need to hookup for some panfish fishing.

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Who hates when your monofilament line wants to come off your reel. Let me share some tips and tricks with you on spooling your reel and help fixing this problem. https://youtu.be/CkFtOHn9nm0

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.
