Heading up tomorrow morning early for a long weekend. Fishing out of Borderview. Thanks to all the info. everyone posts, all my questions have been answered except, using a flurocarbon leader on the end of the fireline crystal I have on my reels now. Should I use 4 or 8lb test. With the stained water is it necessary confused.gif

Really not nessecary. If you want to go through the trouble I would use the heavier weight line.

My dad uses 30# braided on all of his ice fishing gear (Don't ask me why, he just does) and there are days he out fishes me. I use Power Pro with no leader. If you run into a day were the fish are really finicky and lite biting, then it might be an advantage.

I use power pro alot an when it comes to ice fishing an the rainy I like to tip it with 4lb stren or florocarbon but on a big bowl of rootbeer like LOW everything dissapears, the main reason glow jigs are so effective. Boar

Thanks guys, I have fireline crystal on my reels now. I will keep the fluro in the bucket in case they get picky. Time to pick up some food and get a little sleep if thats possible. Should be up there by 10 am or so. I will give a report late sunday or monday.

One more question, I read that chubs would be good to have in the bait bucket. Are chubs the same as suckers???

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

      Decided to hit a couple spots today. Water too high at the first spot so I went to spot number two.  Two so far after 20 minutes

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/
