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.

    • holy moly rocky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😱 did the other feller survive??????????????????????
    • Was this down at Fort Snelling?
    • Well I ended up seeing the other guy at the same area. 13 pointer
    • yepper.............super bowl here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😉
    • I just looked and saw that I was also a 10 year member on this site as of 12/11/2008...got me wondering if the fishingmn site was different, as I recall joining in march during a spring crappie boom on red.  Sure enough I joining that site as of March 2 2005.  It has been a great site to be a part of and have had great conversations, learned a lot, and have sadly seen too many members pass away.  Very odd on that part when I find myself shedding a tear for people I had no connection to other than the love of the outdoors and reading and exchanging info on the interweb!  
    • Camera are great. Shielded wire or wireless I use both. rl-sd good info on shielded, wireless I use 5.8ghz drone trans/rcvr effective and inexpensive all 12v run multiple devices, TV, monitors, tablet, smart phone.   Forced Air Furcace - only way to go. Ventless has CO issue and will put 4 gallons of water/moisture inside your house for every 20# of propane burned. If you go ventless bring a torch the following morning as the door will most likely be froze shut. I have a 6.5 x 12 WH, 19,000 BTU Suburban vented furnace well insulated took 9 min to heat from 8 deg to 70 deg. You will probably need to go to 25,000 minimum. My cealing at 82" and air duct to center of house & 4" round to door no ceiling fans. Have balanced temp all areas of house. On my next build I will add a second floor 2" and have a 12 x 2" channel from furnace to back of house with 8 x 2 multi channels to sides to duct heat. Fill other area with additional insulation.     I don't sleep in mine so no bunks and no range hood.   I would go all 12v lighting. Smaller flexible stranded wire, no A/C interference. Lights available equivelent to 75 watt only white, not yellow. You can get remote dimmers for about $12. I made mine 4 years ago putting 50 50 bright white strips in RV lights. Bottom lighting  pic before I put the new Suburban furnace in.  
    • Congrats on your 10 years Steve!! Made me look too, and it says since 8-11-2000..........    Holy carp, thats a long time ago!! Back in the day we used to have some pretty big get togethers on the Duluth forum.  Many B-side Bash's, a few garbage clean-ups, and a couple Lake Superior get togethers. I've met alot of folks from on here up on URL back in those old days of the Crappie Boom.  IBOT's and clamping, oh my😂      
    • I had my old boss once point out the number of posts I've made here.   " But that comes out to be just less than one post a day."   "I guess you are right, carry on."   And of course, I was also a member of Team Timeout a couple times myself.
