You had 2+ inches in St. James?!?! :headscratch:

That's what I'm trying to figure out. Fishing in a duck slough? In any case, congrats. You win. grin

I even Googled it to make sure the St. James I was thinking of WAS down by Mankato and not up by Canada somewhere.

But at any rate, I am jealous!

Is there fish besides bullheads in that "lake"? If so, you won...although actually having caught a fish would be much more impressive.

At least you didn't fall in and drown.

There's no way that's St James by Mankato. There isn't that much ice on my pond right now.

You win. But I am having hard time to believe. Anywhoo I drive south to work by Redwood Falls, I saw two small ponds completely frozen at lunch time today. Oddly, its been colder down here past couple of days. This morning at 7am it was 8 degree.

I didn't have much time to explain indepth before, but I will now. Most lakes in the area have only skim ice if that. However this lake has been froze over sense at least friday. This lake is the only lake in the area with safe ice, atleast that I have seen. The ice is solid clear ice the slush is from the hole. The lake is basicly a big duck slough (179 acres). There are perch in the lake however and some say their are some big ones. But mainly is bullheads. Sadly I did not catch any thing in the short time. I might make it back out tommorrow with some live bait and see how that goes.

Walkable ice in SE SD as well. Its just too bad I left my ice fishing stuff back home. At least I have to head home for thanksgiving and will all but guarantee I will do a little fishing around home this weekend.

I am originally from St James, and know exactly where TJ was fishing, and can easily believe that where he was is frozen over because I fished that "lake" last year very early in the year (Before anywhere else was frozen)

A good size lake near Tyler MN, (2 hours from St James and almost straight West) is completely frozen over and will probably be ready to get out on in a few days with the overnight lows!

Congrats TJ (I've struggled to get them to bite on that lake but there are perch in there.... or so I've always been told!) It gets deeper if you walk a ways out from where I think you went on!

Looks like you got to do a good amount of fishing today. So I think you are the real winner.

I know where you where at, TjB. She was making more ice while I was pheasant hunting by there yesterday. There were lots of perch last year early ice, nothing over 6 inches but this year could be a different story.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
