Getting dark blue, but still a ways off. I'm still shooting for april 15 for ice free. Shore is getting poor for access. My best advise for this weekend around Alex would be to clean up and get ready for open water. I saw one man on a lake today, I'm sure there are more. I get too cold in ice water myself. Odds are, there will be some open areas by currents, might try some shore action for crappies. Good luck, I'll try to post my observations on Friday, Brent

I'm thinking if we keep getting the rain and wind that are forecast, we'll be icefree by the 10th of April.

This stuff is hard on ice.

My best advise now would be stop on over here with a case and we'll sit around, watch it rain and tell stories!

Realistically this rain is taking days off the ice. Looking like earlier ice out than I thought. Tomorrow will tell a different story for many bodies of water.

Just got back from Osakis-Alex. area and the ice is totally black looking and I think only aq few days away from opening up!

Osakis on the north end has open water out around 75' in most places and an open spot out from Coon point about 25' wide and a couple hundred feet long out towards Buck point.

Most lakes pretty similar conditions! blush.gif

Has anybody been around Lake Miltona lately? What does the ice look like up there? Thanks

Miltona is dark, but barely pulled away from shore anywhere. I think it'll be a week yet.

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore
