Anybody fishing today or tonight?

16 posts in this topic

Just curious if anyone went out fishing today and if the fish were biting? I'm thinking about going out yet to see if an evening bite is on with the storm coming in.

Hey "Grumpy Old", If you go out, you be Darn careful!! It would probably be a great evening to get your Spring gear, in gear grin Ain't no time to be out on the remaining 'ice' alone.., that's just askin' to become a statistic. Phred52

I went out tonight, Ice was fine except for right along the shorelines. Saw a guy driving out today too. Oh and the fishing was slow, but I think we got out kinda late.

I've been out twice since I posted the question- the shore on South Long in Brainerd is soft but I've driven the wheeler out with no problems.

The spot I'm fishing still has 17 inches of solid ice so I'm thinking it will be at least a week before I hang it up...

DO NOT TRY THIS WITHOUT FLOTATION and SELF RESCUE capability.

I was on the north end of White Bear on April 1.

About half way between Ramsey Co Beach and Ordway's Bar.

The bigger sunnies are showing up and on an aggressive bite.

kingfish,

are the shorelines still holding I have been thinking about heading out there. It has been a very slow year out there. Darn Near Retarded may have taken too many in the past and with the last few summers, I think it has taken a toll on them

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
