They are getting out on the ice at the south boat landing at Dresbach. I haven't been there myself yet but my brother works for the railroad and told me they've been fishing it for some time now. With this cold snap I would think the river is fishable in the dam area also. I might get out there this weekend and give it a try. Nothing like iceing some walleyes.

As of Wednesday, Dresbach was wide open except for a small area by the wall. I have not seen anyone there in the last few days. Maybe soon you will be able to get out there.

I made it out to Dresbach for the late bite yesterday. There were quite afew people fishing the south boat landing area. A good 9"-10" of ice in the bay and the main channel was frozen over. I didn't fish up at the dam but there were people fishing that area also. Mostly along the current break and up by the upper bay. The ice was there but I found the bite very slow. Marked fish on the vex checking out my bait but no takers. I fished pool 8 at Stoddard in the morning thu the afternoon and pretty much the same thing. Marked alot of fish but very tight lipped. With 10 hrs on the ice and not one keeper to show for it tells me the bite was off yesterday.

The south boat landing is just south of the I90 overpass. Take the exit at the lock and dam and go past the infomation center and under the bridge. The boat landing is located in the lower bay and there is no current in the bay until you get out past the rock point. Most of the people were fishing off the end ot that point but the shore line along the tracks can be just as good. Look for water between 12'-20'.I never fish it during the day anymore just no fish there at that time. Most of the time the bite will be at dusk for an hour or two after dark. The walleye's move in at that time. Hot bait has aways been jigging Rapala's,silver and black before dark and orange after. I have caught them on other colors to. If your unsure of the ice conditions make sure you carry a spud to check as you go. BE SAFE!! River ice can change quickly and can vary from 12" to 2" in one step. The ice is solid and clear so you can see the thickness. I hope this helps you out some. Good luck.

Drove past Dresbach yesterday and there is open water stretching out from the first (long one) wall along the current break. Might not be any ice fishing there this year the way its going.

    • You might be right.  The only common denominator between all of the kickers that have encountered major issues while with the Vikings is Priefer.  He has built the Special Teams unit into a Special Needs unit.  How they can under preform every year and break down at the most critical times and it not come back on Priefer is really mind boggling.  
    • Congrats whippersnapper.   When are you going to get your wings and throw a get together?👈👈☝️👍😁❤😁
    • Some radio's can be really power hungry. I'd just use a simple bluetooth speaker or some sort of standalone boom box of sorts (for example my makita radio can run for around 50 hours on a single battery). If your lights are not already switch them over to LED. Both of these are easily done to reduce current draw. If you search amazon you can also buy and install PWM led dimmers on all your lights, only turn them up as bright as needed. The great thing about PWM is it reduces your current draw unlike resistor based dimmers of past. Lastly I would take an actual reading at the battery and right where its wired (your results should be very close) when your alarm goes off. You may have a bad Co/lp alarm or the following issues that increase resistance to your alarm in turn dropping the voltage it sees: poor connections, too small of gauge wiring, excessive wire length.
    • There's nothing amusing, or even confusing as to why it happens.  It would be more confusing if outdoorsmen didn't overharvest.  Look no further than Harden's Tragedy of the Commons.       There's a near perfect correlation with the amount of free public resources and the inferior quality of those resources.  This is why reservations are largely wilderness ghettos.  It's why Red Lake collapsed.  The student loan bubble.  This is also why urban ghettos are looted every time there is a riot.  Subsidized housing, drinking water, livestock farming etc.     When people aren't responsible for the effects their actions have on the system they're impacting, those systems will fail.  But hey, keep helping the state buy up all the land and monopolize the lakes.  Maybe someday enough of that insanity will yield a different result.  
    • First off, you need to figure out you amp loading.... how many amps does your furnace take, lights, radio etc. and how long do they run. That should give you your amp hr rating. Then match your battery requirement up with the right amount of amp hours.  Not all batteries are created equal based on size. For example, a group 27 can range from 60-100 amp hrs.    Here is a good site for calculating battery requirements https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/calculator-sizing-a-battery-to-a-load.html  
    • Hey it's my Anniversary old man!   2001 I may not have even been Internet born then? 😄
    • I think Priefer has dirt on the wilfs. That guy should have been fired years ago
    • Gave the Lakemaster chip to my son, he has the E-trex 30x using it in the BWCA as it runs on AA batteries. Uses BaseCamp to create BWCA routes.
    • I learned how to encrypt all digital media near my fishin’ holes.  Hopefully that explains it. 😁
