The DNR will be out in big numbers checking the trout lakes for anglers on saturday and sunday.

One other thing alot of people forget is there is only one line per angler allowed on designated trout water.

Good luck everyone!

Time, one line & the all important STAMP!

And if I'm not mistaken on two tier lakes you cannot keep trout without a stamp and you also can't intentionally fish for them either.

Ebass-not sure what the policies are on being on the ice at Courthouse Lake but I will issue a caution-Courthouse Lake in Chaska is a heavily regulated honey hole with DNR folks checking it out quite often. I ran into a couple CO's around the pond last summer when I was fishing. They ticket too, one guy said his son was out before the trout opener (claimed he didn't know difference betw. stream trout opener in lakes and stream trout opener in streams) and got tagged. I would suggest calling ahead of time to avoid any bad mojo. Good luck and please post your results!

You can be in your spot with the hole drilled at what ever time you want to be, but your line cannot be in the water before 6:46am (sunrise is 7:46am).

Can I be in my spot on the lake without drilling a hole by 5:30? I can't see that being an issue. (stocked pond)

I suck, the trout got the best of me this weekend. I was skunked. I had a couple on that came off. Missed about 5 other hits and saw over 20 - 30 marks on the vex but they didn't want whatever I tossed at em.

Oh well, I still had fun and there was about 150 people on that Courthouse pond about 6AM. It was crazy, I've never seen anything like that. Well OK Mille Lacs on Memorial Weekend was pretty bad.

Mr Special got a bow and my buddy got two (ice rookie luck) the rest of us were blanked. I wouldn't mind going back though.

There was no way of getting away from the noise, people were drilling constantly.

And that day was supposed to be the hot bite. I'd hate to see it when it's a tough bite - LOL. I still may go back there and try it out and actually get away from anyone. Where were you set up? I was in the lagoon close to the courthouse side in a one man fish trap. I was next to Moby, in a black frabill two man. We fished the 11' and 8' depths. I saw fish in both places most of the time. Oh well, still had fun.

I agree Ebass - it was very loud out there. People seemed to be drilling for the sake of drilling at times. I watched a guy out my window drill 3 holes all within 12" of each other. Took two or three steps and repeated the process. He fished one hole for less then a minute, then moved to the next and left the area.

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
