Nice fish. Conditions are going to change quickly down there this weekend. The big fish are there, but getting them to bite is the hard part when they are thinking about something else.

MTT tourney is this weekend Saturday and Sunday. Will be interesting to see how many big fish full of eggs they catch. Could be some monster weights

A buddy was out saturday after the snow. Said there were some good sized drifts out there to drive through, but plenty of ice. He drove out as did a few others. Said the sunfish were biting, but not many crappies. Was kind of tough to move around with the wind blowing around.

I drove on at the public access. Should be good there for a while depending on traffic. You can also pay to use Petersons campground access. Flickabirds has open water at the ramp about a 2/3 of car length. I drove off and around it on the edge, but i wouldn't recommend doing it again. Ice is still thick an ok to drive on in my opinion. Thinner areas may be where permanent houses sat till they were pulled off.

Finally made it up to Eash Rush saturday. Caught a bunch of crappies in 19 feet of water. Tried for sunfish toward dark in shallow. Caught 20, but only one over 8 inches. Shallow bite should improve as the ice gets worse.

Was out saturday on East Rush and sunday on Chisago. Ice was still in good shape, but accesses are getting sloppy. Access by Flickabirds had a big area of open water, but wheeler access and walking will be fine for a while. Found crappies suspended out in 19 fow while looking for perch. Never found schools of shallow slabs, but didn't spend much time looking for them either since the deeper fish were so active and fun to catch. Bad part was they kept moving around.

Sunfish were picky on Chisago, but still caught some decent fish. Seems like they prefered the slower drop of a lead jig over tungsten.

Nice work. Planning to find some hungry shallow slabs myself this weekend. Most lakes with good weeds seem to hold shallow papermouths all winter.

Watergate marina is out of the current, but you have to pay a fee. Otherwise the 494 ramp in south st paul is mostly out of the current and the ramp is very user friendly. St Paul Park has a ramp too that is on a back channel with minimal current.

Good tips Chris. I was there saturday around noon and saw someone had launched a fishing boat with a roller trailer. I was curious if more has melted since then since it was above freezing sunday and monday. A little sun and warmth tomorrow should help it along.

Walleye and sauger mostly. You can also catch bass, pike and catfish.

Anyone been by the Lilydale ramp lately? How is it looking? Ice shelf gone yet?
