6 posts in this topic

I live in the Chisago Lakes Area. I was Laid off Thursday and now I will have time to sit on the ice and was wondering whats the word on the water?

Any one else have time during the week day and want to hook up?

I just picked up a clam fish trap Voyager and I'm excited to use it.

Cool I have a few honey do lists to take care of but i should be able to get out Wednesday. What lake are you thinking for some crappies? Ive only been on the lake once this yr and that was up at red when we had the -40 weekend. What is the ice thickness around here? I'm kind of a newbie here, i can't find a way to PM you. I click on your name and it only gives me 3 options. view profile, watched users, view posts...

New Flyer of America Inc., a bus building place in St. Cloud, and, DeZurik, a valve builder in Sartell are hiring. My brother-in-law works at New Flyer and says there's about 40 openings, including welders, for third shift. Not sure about DeZurik but they're set to hire maybe 25. Both are on the Interweb or through the state job service. It would be a bit of a ride from Wyoming but 95 across at the North Branch exit doesn't suck the worst.

    •   Really, how deep?  Head scratch?    Oh, I think I'm smelling river.

    • that worked today    friend was throwing jerk bait and 4 nice eyes slammed it. funny!   
    • Cooler than normal temperatures, clouds and rain dominated the last week and slowed down the spring progression, including bird migrations and fish spawning. However, a warm-up in the next couple of weeks could change that quickly.River systems across the entire state are running very high, and while the Memorial Day weekend has traditionally been a popular paddling weekend, recreational safety specialists are cautioning that only experienced and properly outfitted paddlers should be on rivers when they are running this high. The Lower Wisconsin River set a flow rate record this week of 42,000 cubic feet per second at Muscoda and there are no sandbars available for camping. The river is running fast and deep, with some boat launches under water.Fewer anglers were out this week due to the rain and cooler weather and those that were reported mixed success. Along Green Bay one hot spot has been out of the mouth of the Pensaukee River where anglers have been catching limits of walleye. White bass anglers had a great deal of success, with some harvesting more than 20 fish from a few hours of fishing. .
    • I believe they use the same blades so I wouldn't expect much of a difference.   
    • So what is the difference between the Lazer Synthetic and just a plain ole Lazer hand auger when it comes to cutting ice with a hand drill?  Lazer Synthetic is lighter but does it cut any better?

    • My family is going to be headed to Birch Lake near Babbitt, MN in late June for a week on a houseboat.  This trip is a graduation present for our oldest and I am hoping to make it a week to remember.   I would appreciate any advice ranging from fishing locations, bait, suggested lures, and even sites to see on the lake.  I have done a lot of searching on Google with the hope of finding someone who maybe spent a week on a houseboat on Birch but not a lot of luck.  I have about a month to prepare for the trip so I greatly appreciate everyone input.   Thanks,  
    •     I have had good luck with the "My Plate" app.... It is annoying enough to keep you honest, but simple enough to use.
    •   Yeah well once you fire that bad boy up and show her how it works, she will get impressed pretty quick!
