    I’ve been by it 3 or 4 times the last week. Have not seen a person on the ice. Been thinking too, that it’s time to try it.

    There is a business near there in Duncombe that sells gas, grocery and bait. It is called Duncombe gas and grocery. They have a web site that periodically posts fishing reports. I personally do not know how timely or accurate it is. Been there once last winter. Seemed like a good resource. Their phone number should be 515-543-8269. Good Luck

    Don’t overlook southern MN. I have gone years past south of the cities in the Faribault/Owattona area. Roberd’s, French, and Mazaska lakes hold good populations of sizeable pike. Not sure your odds at hooking a 40+ incher like you describe, but I do recall several trips where mid 30’s were halfway common. One year we were there (probably 2012 or 2013) the survey on Roberds showed the pike that went 9 lbs and change were very common and that rang true for us. Many very large pike with the random huge one here or there. Some of the lakes in that area will give you a shot at muskie too. Pm me if you’d consider this area, I have more info if you’re interested.

    Speng,
    Checking if you got my PM?

    I recently made reservations at Rumorz Neighborhood Hideaway for a couple overnight fishing trips. It is located at 1214 S Shore Dr. It is supposed to be completely remodeled. I noticed last year when at the lake it was under construction. Used to be, I think “Silver Boot.” Bait shop also suggested this place as an overnight option. I have not stayed there yet. It’s my understanding there is a food/bar affiliated with the motel across the street. Reasonable rate.

    I went out from the south boat ramp on the west side into the deeper water. This ramp is just north of the beach. Yesterday there was also people fishing west and north of the south ramp on the east side of the lake. This ramp is near the residential area. As always, be cautious and observant where you travel on the ice.

    Try to narrow his area of retrieve to an isolated area like a long hallway without any distractions. Keep the training to a minimum and if he doesn’t want to retrieve pack it up and move on to something else. When he gets “hallway” training down 100% move out to the yard and repeat the process. Always stop before he loses interest.

    Matt,
    I tried sending you a PM last weekend also. Not sure if you were ever able to retrieve it or not.

    Been several years since we consistently camped and fished Rathbun. Seems like fishing changed after the high water in 2008. Still try to get down for at least a day trip once or twice a year. We used to troll or drift the three different flats. I believe they were Rolling Cove, South Fork, and ????? . . I’m not recalling the third one. Generally used spinner / lindy rigs with leeches or crawlers. We camped at Buck Creek so we usually got our bait from a bait shop called the Damsite. The people that ran it seemed to have a good feel for what was going on. It’s my understanding it is now under new ownership. As far as food we have ate at the Honey Creek resort and it was good. We also ate at a restaurant on the south edge of Centerville at the golf couse. It was very good. As of last year there was a restaurant on the lake at the marina by Buck Creek. It was very good and from reports from other people it seemed to be the hot spot. Good Luck and let us know how the weekend goes.
