I made the trip from Chaska to Hope (south of Owatonna), then back north and west to home outside Annandale. That was yesterday, and it was horrible. Today dawned with more snow falling.

Fortunately I don't have to drive anywhere today. Can we return to Jan-Feb weather?

Clayton - others...

Yes - Return us to that lovely 25-30F weather
we had in Jan and Feb. I WANT to ice fish
some more - last year I made out on April 6
and I want more - call me one of the ice
forum diehards - although I didn't post in
that thread.

Down here - Rochester area and further west
the ice as all ready deserted us - heard a
report from a coworker that Elysian was
clear, and Tetonka was working at it. A number of the smaller pond and gravel pit
type lakes in this area are clear.

Open water fishing is ok - but there is nothing like ice fishing.

Just two more weekends of ice fishing, and I'll have had my fill.

Hey, maybe I can ice fish Vermillion in May this year. Just kidding, Guideman. I better watch what I say or you won't let me beat you fishing anymore.

I'm placing my bet on the 13th of April for shore crappie fishing in the metro. You heard it here first!

Guideman,

Maybe borno is right about opener. I am staying at hoodoo point, Maybe I will come with ice fishing rods and tip-ups. Either way the walleyes will be caught. (hopefully on my st. croix rod and not a bright orange tip-up)

    • Now that looks fantastic Dave. 😋  Please tell us you made it, and not your Valentine! 🙁  
    • Pan seared New York Strip steak, sauteed mushrooms, sweet carrots and cheesy hash browns for Valentines day.    
    • I have a 2013 ecoboost since new, now have 85,000. Starts right up.
    • 1/16 oz chartreuse forage minnow. No need for anything else.
    • Got out on local trails for a quick 60 mile ride ,,,, 3rd set of tracks on a freshly groomed trail ,,, It was like riding on a ribbon,,, Trail conditions near Duluth  are ideal with all the snow we have received,,, Ya gotta love riding during the week  
    • Demons are good!  I always have some with too.  But I usually start with a forage minnow in blue/glow.  Another I’ve learned to keep handy is a Rattling Blade Spoon.   Can’t say I have a hard go to for sunnies.  Sometimes they hit the forage minnow anyway.  But I do normally have a tungsten jig head with plastic ready to go if a good marking fish is interested but just won’t commit.
    • Oops, you’re right Del. I have deer too and feed corn to them. Birds are fighting for perches many times throughout the day. I’ve been trying to coordinate the frenzy times With those major/minor  feeding activity tables but so far not much similarity. It gets REAL crazy at times. 
    • What is everyone's favorite crappie and sunfish jig?  I always like to a have a demon jig on at least one of my rods. I have had great luck with a white body and a purple, orange or pink head. The demon has been my go to crappie jig for many winters! I also like a red/ yellow demon for sunnies.
    • Wisconsin had a series of snowfall across the entire state this week, dropping anywhere from 6 to more than a foot of snow in many locations. With Wisconsin finally completely covered with snow, this should be one of the best weekends of the season for outdoor winter recreation.Snowmobile trails have reopened through much of central Wisconsin counties and a few southern counties. Trails across the northern half of the state were good to excellent on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Cross-country ski trails were groomed or will be by the weekend and many properties are reporting ski trail conditions are excellent or good. After several snowfalls this week, crews have been busy grooming ski trails. Many properties are reporting excellent conditions going into the weekend.Photo credit: DNRNorthern lakes are ice covered with 20-plus inches of ice. With the snowfall the lakes are heavy with snow and travel out on the ice is difficult. There have been a few diehard ice anglers out there fishing for walleye, crappie and perch with not much to show for their efforts. .
