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).

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
