I fished metro ice on 11/30!!!

Because that was my dream this year!
I fished a small lake near Hudson, WI yesterday(30 minutes away-that's metro, right?)
3.5" inches of ice-right about my comfort level. Although by about noon, there was plenty of water on the top, and I was feeling like I should have left about an hour earlier.
I stayed pretty close to shore, and caught a bunch of small perch and a crappie. Put out a tipup for pike, but nothing happening there.
The warm weather this week is going to chase me off for a while, but it felt really good to be looking at that dark circle and listening to the Vex whirl again!

I saw a Clam out in the middle of that small lake just south of 94 east of St Paul, I think it's called Battle Creek lake? There is another bigger lake just north, Tanner's?Was that anyone here?

I drive by these 2 lakes every day. Battle Creek is really shallow so it freezes quickly...dont know what you would catch out there besides some bluegill or small pike, tanners is 90% open.

Yea Battle Creek freezes fast but their is a new aerator so you should be careful if you go out on it.

Last year me and a friend were out on Battle Creek pretty earlie in the season and we were on the news. They were doing a story about dangerous ice (even though their was 3-4" of ice).

    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
    • Not unlike most years.....
