Nice fish!!! I seriously considered heading to that lake on Sunday, but ended up at Mid instead. Kicking myself now.

Any predictions for ice-out on footprint?

If we were a day later we would not of been fishing, I'd say next week Footprint will be open, I'm passing through there this coming Sunday and if the shores open enough I'm taking a few casts :D fish will be in the shallows along shorelines. I'll post a report, how was Mid lake? I guess I have to buy a new license :)

They do look like nice ones that you post from there. Sounds like you had a good end of ice all in all. I am sure you are ready for open water thou.

Mid was quite slow. I did get into a couple rainbows in some very deep water, at least the weather was fantastic.

I've heard reports that the shore has opened up enough on footprint to fish.
