Turkey Day Ice?

Recommended Posts

Ponds are iced over and the first 15-20 yards of several smaller lakes are frozen... I think it's a forgone conclusion that we'll be fishing by then on many northern lakes here, if not several days before (Grand Rapids area).

It was going dark on my travels from Little Falls to Crosslake but the only open water I saw was Big Trout tonight.  I’m sure much of the chain is open but quite a bit of water closed up this past week.

Then maybe my 1700 acre Itasca County lake will feel my wrath? 😄

 

*whoop whoop....escape from the in-laws time*

So Duff, where in Itasca county? Lakes around the cabin in Itasca county, the 4 I looked at where all locked up. Just north of Bowstring

Right there by Riley's.  Hopefully they stay locked up and the wind and temps behave.

I heard a report today of guys pounding slab crappies through the ice near DL. This shallow pond is reported to have 4" of ice.

I have never been over there, which is a little surprising having been going to Jessie for 30 years.  I'll send up a Smurf blue smoke signal next time. ;)

I was down in the Twin Cities yesterday and saw two guys ice fishing on Lake Owasso off of Victoria and north of county road D. They were out in front of the  New Perspective Senior Living building.

Are you sure they just didn't escape the Memory Wing? 😲

From the lack of boats I see on the lake and at the access, you are not alone. I don't expect much out there these days, it's a good attitude to have. :)

I'm hoping for some perch, pike, and a tulibee or two next week.

    • The homerun derby that is the 2019 twins season continued lastnight! Holy cow is this team fun to watch! First time in MLB history a team had multiple 5 homerun games before June 1st.
    • Got my ND birds back yesterday.  
    • 😣 looks like I need to cover my plants tonight, there's a frost advisory here.
    • I wish I could have gotten pictures, but a bird I could not identify, looked it up and had American Redstart on my deck today, there were about 3 or 4 of them. very awsom.
    • Planted onions,carrots,green beans,lettuce,beets and potatoes yesterday before the rain. The carrots, beans, beets and lettuce are 2 varieties of each as a varieties test for NDSU Horticulture Department.
    • so, last nite I busted my butt to get all my peppers. maters, celery and green beans planted before the rains came. it was way to windy to plant carrots and the rest of my kolarabi. I wanted to plant my cabbage but grabbed broccoli instead. ISH...… got them today and there in.   so once this crappy weather moves on i'll get anything else in the ground soon.   picked my first bunch of asparagus today!!!!!! there in the process of getting put in a pickling brine!!!!!
    • birds are crazy at the feeders. 4 male orioles fighting, pair of male cardinals going at it. plenty of yellow finches. even have a scarlet tanager here!!!!!!   the tree swallows showed up as well as a pair of wrens checking to rent!!!!!!!
    • Just about done.  All the pads are finished up. All the trim has a clear coat on it now(2 coats around the windows and door). I also got some blinds installed.  I had a nice surprise from my mom.  She bought me a tv for it.  I had planned on putting a tv in it before next ice season so thats awesome to get one installed early.  Its going to make its madden voyage next weekend.  We are going up to Cut Foot Sioux to camp for memorial day weekend. Now its time to clean it all up good and stock it up for camping.
    • For the 2019 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went out on Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. Our first day the fishing was slow with a lot of different tactics and areas tried. We made a change that evening and casted artificials into rocky shorelines with a lot of success. We decided to try that again the next morning when a large surprise inhaled my jerkbait!    
    • Another good start from Perez last night, Kepler & Adrianza with 5 of the 7 RBI's
