Has anyone been out to either lake to see the water levels or if the DNR has addressed the launch problems. Two props and a rudder fin are busted off in Circle. mad.gif

I have not been on either (ever). Where are the problem areas on Circle? I plan on being there at 5 am. Wouldn't want major issues to start the season. Thanks for the help.

Be very carfull from the launch to the island if new to Circle or have a boat 14' or larger. Watch your depth carfully. The 'catch' on Circle is not worth the price to fix a lower unit!!

So how did you do out at Circle? Hopefully you made it through the channel ok and got to the fish.

These two lakes are at their best only when the water levels are high. If we receive alot of good rain during the months the fishing should be good. Otherwise it can be a long day of fishing with nothing but potatoe chips and roughies.

We managed to make it through the trouble at 5 am. Only managed three eyes for about 7 hours of fishing. Had a blast though. Thanks for the heads up!

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

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