Oh, I gotcha. The lake I live on has zeebes and if I were to get rid of my dock, I'd be leery that 21 days is even enough to kill those little bassturds since they're latched on there so thick.

Not to be rude or condescending, but please be vigilant about AIS, especially zebra mussels, when you're looking at a used dock and placing it into a new body of water.

In fact there is a law regarding such a thing.

As of July 1, 2012, a boat lift, dock, swim raft, or associated equipment that has been removed from any water body may not be placed in another water body until a minimum of 21 days have passed.

That certainly looks plausible to me. Based on those measurements it would beat the current state record and C&R record. However, that record is kind of lake the muskellunge record in that there have been cases where bigger fish have been caught but not submitted to make the record books. In fact, there have probably been more record breaking sturgeon caught than muskies. Regardless, that's a heck of a fish.

Oh, and it would only be news if someone informed the news to make it news.

I can't speak for the Crosby area specifically, but there are a number of lakes around Brainerd that are open. I'd guess that there are lakes over there that are open too, or certainly will be by the weekend.

They both have the pros and cons. I've used both.

Big Kahuna is certainly more durable, but due to it's weight and thick netting you can't swing it through the water, and it takes up a lot of space. However hooks don't get tangled and cause a hassle, and its big enough that a large fish isn't abused.

The Stowmaster is very nice for storage and the netting allows for swinging through water. But its not as durable and hooks get tangled a little more.

I think it depends on how often you'll be using the net and if you're fishing solo or with a partner, and perhaps if you can get a good deal on one or the other. I was shopping for a net and stumbled upon the Frabill version of the Stowmaster for $45 at Dick's Sporting Goods

I have no idea what the ice is like on Big Trout, but other lakes in the Brainerd area are looking real sketchy, especially the small lakes and even around the edges of the larger lakes are open or bad ice. I think you'd be crazy to venture out on the ice now, regardless of the lake.

Any new report in the past 2 days how much the river has gained.. What are you boys seeing for water temp ? Thanks!


So you didn't end up going the other night? I was hoping to read a report from you.

According to the USGS, the water temp at Manitou Rapids is currently 32.2 degrees and the level has been pretty stable for the last 6 days, which is low.

I've been using a 6" convertible Nils auger (the orange one) for the last 2.5 years and it's been great. I use a DeWalt 20v XR 3 speed hammerdrill and it cuts great. Since I've got my Nils I haven't used the gas auger more than a dozen times, which was used to target larger fish and with very thick ice.

I haven't needed to sharpen the blades yet, but like BiteKiller said, there is a guy outside of Duluth who sharpens them. From what I've read, he's the only guy in the USA who sharpens them, which is kind of weird. Below is his info.

Rainy River update as of 2 pm today. River has busted open through the Manitou rapids. It's open within a couple miles of Birchdale. Birchdale itself is still completely locked up.

Picture looks like it's from the Manitou Rapids site, looking west (downstream).

No idea why the text doesn't show up in the other previous posts, but this was posted from a friend of Royal Dutchman Resort on Tuesday, March 20.

So I stopped at Franz Jevne in Birchdale and I saw open water I couldnít see how far it goes but this is 2 miles east of Nelsonís Store in Birchdale
