This ice has to melt soon don't it? I don't how much longer I can stand staring at a bobber in an 8 inch hole in the ice shocked.gif

I was hoping to go fish Lake Superior from shore this weekend but even that is frozen over frown.gif

This has to end soon don't it?

The last I heard the Ely area is not expecting the lakes to be open by the May opener ... I'm not that far up, but its going to be a close call on the lakes here too I think (Hwy 2 area)... looks like I'll be spending some time on the river banks for opener, and until the lakes do some warming up.

We need alot of warm weather with some rain to have much hope.

The River is also opening up around New Ulm and Mankato! It will not be long now.
Actually in some spots you can probably fish from shore already!!! I cant wait!

I'm holding out a little(not too much) hope of fishing close to home for the opener. But up here in the Iron Range area I don't know if things are gonna be too good. It will be touch and go as to whether the ice will be of the lakes, much less warmed up for fishing frown.gif

May have to travel south to fish, or stay home, wait a minute I'm not gonna stay home smile.gif

Sorry to put a damper on everyone positive thinking, but I went out fishing last night and if the ice would have been 2 inches thicker I wouldn't have gotten through with my gas auger. I didn't measure, but the is still alot of ice.

Hi All,
Most of the snow is gone up here on the Big V, but unfortunately there is over 4ft of ice to melt by May 10th. frown.gif

If the night time temps keep rising the way they have lately, it will go sooner than we think.
I wouldn't mind a record heat wave the next few weeks....

Honey,is the ice gone yet??
No guideman, go back to sleep! smile.gif

Hey Guideman, you are talking about my favorite lake wink.gif

I am keeping the faith that things will be ready on the big V for the opener. We did well up there last year and hoping for the same again. smile.gif

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
