I was out with my son over the weekend and even with rubber boots on it didn't take him long to get drenched, but you know how little boys are lol There was still a good amount of ice but I think I'll take the week off and hopefully let things firm back up and get some stuff done around the house. I'm sure the wife will appreciate that...

Nice looking fish! Can I ask what lake you were on?

I bought a pair of Kinco Frost Breaker #1787 at my local True Value for $5 and it's the best money I've ever spent! They're surprisingly warm, really comfortable, and the fingers and palms are SUPER grippy. I can't recommend them enough. Heck for that kind of money just buy a couple pairs and you can have an extra set along with you in case you drench the pair you're wearing.

Just started really getting into the ice side of things this year so I don't have as much experience as most of you guys but so far I would say....

Best: buddy heater with adapter hose to run off 20lb tank

Worst: HT rod and reel combos

Seems like guys aren't liking strikemaster augers? I bought a used magnum 3 8" and it's worked perfectly for me so far, probably drilled 100 or so holes this year so far. And up north last weekend it fired right up Saturday morning at -25

I agree with a lot of the stated points, I'm not entirely sure where I was hoping to go with this post. I guess it's just something that's been on my mind lately. I love fishing, I could do it all day everyday. Literally. Within the last few years I've started shying away from fishing the metro area primarily taking trips up along the north shore and the bwca area. It just seems to me that it's not worth all the time and effort to battle the crowds to catch a handful a fish out of runoff infested waters. And that means I fish less. And that bums me out. Hence this post. These are just my thoughts and opinions

Metro Lakes: Dirty and Overfished

The title pretty much says it all, and I'm not trying to be provocative. I was talking with a family member of mine last night who lives down in Florida, and naturally the topic of fishing came up. He's never fished in MN before and when he asked me to describe the fishing opportunities in the metro area that's the first thought that came to my mind. I didn't tell him that, but I can't get the thought out of my head now and it's kind of depressing. Let's be honest, the water quality on any given metro lake is not really something to brag about, and the fishing tends to be hot and cold, mostly because when there's a hot bite somewhere everybody and their brother is out there hammering the fish until it dies down and they move on to the next lake. When I drive by a lake and see 50+ ice houses all clustered together an arms length apart I can't help but wonder what's the point? Anyways I just thought I would share this thought as I ponder the future of fishing in MN. Comments welcome

Didn't have too much luck, I heard they were catching quite a few small walleye's on Shagawa but we didn't get over there to fish. We fished Farm lake where it narrows down before getting into White Iron and the only thing we could muster up was a bunch of eelpout out of some of the deep holes. The ice is pretty sketchy in there so you have to be careful too. The cold temps combined with the wind made it pretty tough to be productive. We also went over to Little Long for a day and caught a few decent eye's but the bite was tough, would get some nice marks on the flasher but getting them to bite was a different story.

I'm headed up tomorrow, looks like it's going to be a little chilly lol. Any lake recommendations for eyes? We're staying on the white iron chain and plan to fish that one day but would like to try something else too. I've heard good things in the past about Little Long and Section Twelve lake...

You were right, first of the year within the bwca, mid January for lakes outside the bwca for all species of trout.
