There were people fishing off the pier on long lake in New Brighton. Lost of open water all around the dock. They just started as I was leaving, so I don't know if they caught anything or not.

Drove by some city lakes Hiawatha Isles Nokomis, Ice couldn't get much darker, if the wind would blow just a little bit we'd be looking at beautiful blue water!

I drove by Spring lake in Scott County tonight and it still was covered, but looked pretty weak, with cracks or water showing between. Hope it's out by the weekend so i can get the boat out.

Shady Oak Lake in Hopkins opened overnight.

Bryant Lake opened as well, with just a bit of slush in the North bay that will be gone before the end of today.

Time to fire up the boats! laugh.giflaugh.gif

After work I'll be joining some of the guys with their canoe's out on some lakes. Water is good to go I believe, just need the "whoopin stick" if there still a little ice but doesn't seem like a problem. Majority of the lakes we surveyed last evening are pretty much opened up with somewhat large sheets of thin ice. Don't take much to crack and row your way through the ice channels to a good spot. They are already out on the west metro area. They said that whats been working was cracking your way to the break. The dark ice is bubbled up so it don't take much to crack it open. Caution though, the ice moving pretty good, yesterday we saw a big platet move like 40ft in 5 mins. Since no vegatation in the shallows yet, the fish are holding a little deep 10-15ft still in weed patches. Crappie minnows have been the goto. I'll try to get some pictures tonight if I can. Will be out in a gray 16 ft canoe, the slim ones. Another buddy has a green one, same size. Wave if any of you are from this site fishing. That will probably be the plan till total ice out. Thinking of also trying reel weeds. Any of you try canoing out there yet?

Prior Lake, South Access you can get the boat in the water and head out about 150 yards until you hit the ice.

Spring lake (Scott Co.) Main body of water is wide open, just the bay (SW corner)is where the remainder of ice is...no boat there for a day or 2.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.
    • mulefarm
      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?
    • Bigfatbert
      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
