Gonna make it an even 10 to the big pond, if
the ice holds for another week or so.

Made 1 trip south toward pelican rapids, for
crops and sunnies.

Didn't make it to URL. tho would have liked to. Way the landing reports are sounding, may have to wait 9 months for that.

It's been a tough bit, in general, but a good season.

Good luck and be careful;

Wow, toughest question I've seen on here in awhile! It would be easier to say how many days I did not fish! I hit the ice roughly 80-90 days this winter, it was a good one! I'm ready for soft water however!

2 trips to Canada for trout
3 trips to LOW
3 trips to Red
1 trip to Vermillion
10 days on local lakes

About 30 days of fishing. But, then add packing days and driving that takes up some more time.

I'm not sure of my total for the winter, but I have been out 5 times in the last 6 days. I have never seen the ice bumpier or more slippery than it was yesterday on North Center. That rain we got made it pretty interesting. I'm heading up to Brainerd for a few days to fish with my Dad, hopefully there will still be enough ice for a few more times out around here when I get back.

I got out quite a bit this winter but never got an a metro lake. I fished about 18 days on URL and 3 trips to LOW. All in all another great season. My first trip of the year was 12/5/03 compared to 12/26 in 2002.

The crappies cooperated much earlier this year on URL wink.gif

I got on the ice around 70 plus days this winter. I had some good trips and some so-so, but hey any day you get to spend on the water is a blessing.

Not enough, but when it is enough. grin.gif

I think this ice fishing season I had fished around 25 days.
Me being on the varsity basketball team in the winter, its kind of tough to get out fishing all the time.

6- Upper Red Lake
4- Lake of the Woods
1- Devils Lake
1- St. Paul Ice Fishing Show

Went out on Red the day after Thanksgiving. I could count the number of people fishing on both my hands. Quite a spectacular sight to see the lake that empty!

I Only made it out two weekends, caught a few crappies, a lot of perch and two real nice northerns. Its really just an excuse to get drunk with my buds.

I will make it out on the open water just about every day from this weekend(start with a little Carpin') until maybe November.

THANK GOD WINTER IS OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ice fishing sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bring on summer!

BIG ISLAND DUDE YOU ARE WRONG! Ice fishing is the greatest thing the state of Minnesota has period.... Where else can any one that wants to fish without a ton of money for a boat and motor get around a lake and do what God intended (catch and eat fish) Every one is entitled to their own oppinon but yours is wrong rolleyes.gif

I fish a little around "home" (Southern MN), But I mostly fish near the Spicer-Willmar area. Them I consider my home lakes.

    • Did well fishing today. Pitching jigs to the rocks in town produced fish. Also headed north up river and picked up some fish there. Released the females and kept a 2 man limit of males.  Couldn’t have asked for a better day of weather to be on the water.    
    • No pictures tonight because my phone was on the charger but I made no flip, smoked, hamburgers like this. ....   https://grillagrills.com/recipes/no-flip-burger-recipe/
    • Pfunk, I can take one of those jakes out for you! Slow first day for me, just one gobbling at the thunder.
    • You don't need one of those, they're overpriced anyway. Any smoker will do.
    • Thanks Dave. Sure wish I had one of them expensive fancy pellet grills.
    • yep sucker em with gobble call or gobbler yelps on a diaphragm ,they fit nicely in a deep fryer !
    • Man what a frustrating day. Had a pair of jakes that decided to spend their day in our vicinity and they ran off a pair of toms that were cutting across the plowing headed for us this morning, then this evening we were pretty confident the nicest tom we saw today would be headed past us to get back to the roost and sure enough... he followed the script. As I was readying the gun on him those 2 jakes decide to come out of the woods, he sees them, and dumps into the ravine with them chasing behind.    EDIT: Now 3 times they have run one off. That tom just made another attempt to sneak his way in and they ran him off again. Never wanted to shoot a jake as bad as I want these two gone.
    • O i know they can be.  I have a good CO and fire detector.  I had one in my last house and it worked good.  I dont plan on doing much sleeping in it maybe a few times a winter.  
    • It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests.   I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours.    I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour.    Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.
