Any word on the start of the Cutfoot Sioux stripping station?

Brainerd took the state's first eggs on Saturday. I would guess Cutfoot will be up and running by the end of the week. Call Grand Rapids area office 218-999-7821.

They put up the trap on Sunday and I assumed they started yesterday or today. I don't know if they allow observation but maybe if you park at the access on the other side of 46 and talk nice to the owners of Cutfoot Sioux Inn they'll let you observe a little closer to the action.

No need to park on the other side of 46. Drive into the Onegum (sp)camp grounds and walk right out on the dock. Unless things have changed the DNR has always let people come out and watch.

150 Quarts - Holy Smokes !!

Ya wonder if they missed out by a few days or more.

This is good for other lakes, but one wonders if it robs Winnie too much...

they always put back into winnie a percentage of the eggs they harvest as fry so as not to rob the lake too much

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
