Tom, if you're really itching to cast your line into open water, the Two Harbors breakwater was wide open yesterday.

From what I could tell yesterday (wed 21st), the ice was broken up but not yet out of the knife river marina. I may try to slip the boat in this weekend.

We saw the open water area get a lot bigger during the course of today. I know that was due more to ice breaking off and drifting than it was to melting, but still, it's not going to be much longer...

We need more rain and warmer temp's. But I think it will be another 2-weeks before I get out.

Tom -

Let me know when your ready! New plugs are in the mail, and should be here by Wednesday. Boat is cleaned out, tires aired back up. Have the charger on the batteries today. Just need to fill the pig up with Gas, and get 'er on the water. I may fill it up with Gas soon as it sits completely empty, and with prices fluctuation so much...it just makes sense!

Sad, Im thinking of filling the boat up with Gas, but have yet to drain the gas out of my Auger for the summer....it still may get it use yet!

I think thats the only time i can get her to go! Make room in the front of the boat for a pillow and tanning oil, and i'll be good. I have a feeling that i am going to be "that guy" from the stories we told after the swap meet. A few boats putting right next to me that i don't see till they are right on me....trying to get their sneek peak!

It sounds like something that we may be able to do Tom. I'm still waiting for this darn ice to move another direction...preferrably up in space in a vapor format...but back on the other shore would suffice also!

From the looks of things through the web cam it looks like the ice has almost completely moved out of there. Has it?

      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.

      59 crossing Daisy Bay Friday night. 67 in Big Bay this afternoon.

      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.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
