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.

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
