and STUMAtW t , V 0 - \Jj- ' I fnlClf 16K *•»' While there hasn't been much snow in Minnesota this winter, there is one abnormal condition Which has, fishermen wondering about the opening this spring... the ice is thick For instance Vern Lyon of LongvUle, Minnesota reports thai the Ice is 42 Inches thick in parts of Leach Lake. On a recent trip to Alexandria, we found the ice to be 37 inches thick on Lake Ida, and Bfffc Stffifch the game warden in that;area told me a similar condition existed on most of stfae lakes in the area. Howard Lane 40 miles out of Minneapolis ' otf Highway 12 has ice 32 inches thick. 'Red* Graeber of Spring Park on Lake Minnetonka reports ice 32 inches thick in front of his sports shop,'but he Warns that there are many holes in the lake and it is not safe to drive on it with a car. > Three fishermen drowned just two weeks ago going through one of those holes while driving on the lake. That's the present situation. * * • HOW ABOUT THE OPENING?-*I asked Chuck Burrows, chiel research biologist of fishing research for the- State of Minne- sdta what effect the abnormal thickness of the ice would haya on fishing this spring. Here in his opinion: THOUGH THE ICE IS UNUSUALLY THICK THIS YEAR. IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE BREAKUP IN THE SPRING WILL BE DELAYED. "THERE IS NO SNOW COVER tO INSULATE THE ICE FROM ' THE' WARM WEATHER WE MAY HAVE ' DURING THE MONTH OF APRIL AND IF TEMPERATURES 'IN APRIL ' ARE l 'AT ALL'-WARM THE ICE IN \THIS AREA SHOULD GO OUT' ON TIME • s SOME WHERE INT-THE MIDDLE OF APRIL. if, «TT "WILL OF i COURSE BE SLOWER -ftFTHE NORTHERN COUNTIES,- SOMETIMES AS MtJGH AS TWO WEEKS LATER.

"ffsr^ , » * * r POPULAR PERCH — /Minnesota'-" is-, "known as a •walleye state, but this winter left tike, a great p*rch has stolen „ _... _._J&«nds o! fish&S nen have been jfgftftg for perch n from 6 to 8 feet of water. They have found that a winter caught perch of between a pound and- a pound find a half is belter eat- ng than the walleye. (By tho way, the wstTeye is a member of the pe?ch family and is not a jike.) The most popular baits i6ve been the small rock scampers and frosty Johns. BLUE GILL LAKE — One of the most popular winter blue gill lakes, especially with Iowa fishermen, is Ann Lake at Ogilvic on Highway 56, while fishing has gone in streaks, the good periods have seen an unusual number on one pound blue gills taken. Ann Lake also 1 Is a good crappie lake. » » * Do you have any hunting i fishing problems or inquiries? If so, Stu Mann will try to answer your questions. Send them c/o this newspaper.
