    Tonight on Pike Bay under an inch and a half of snow. Closer to 6 inches on the bare ice areas. Unreal how quick things happened this year. If this storm on Friday holds off we'll be in great shape looking at forecast.

    The ice in Black Bay was 5-6" deep on Saturday. It was beautiful, strong ice.....perfect for my daughter and I to skate on. I did get those new heaters in Del, but the wood fire did most of the work. It was nice to set the heaters to 50 degrees overnight and have the heaters kick on after the fire had died out. I've always liked rebuilding the fire in the middle of the night, but I like sleeping even more!

    The last weekend is upon us! I’m still not 100% sure if I get to hunt ducks this weekend or not. But I can tell you one thing for sure: I don’t plan on whacking any Common Mergansers if I go! Last weekends diver shoot produced a few so I decided to try them. I know, I know, any experienced duck hunter knows better, right? Well I always challenge convention when it comes to what makes “good” table fare. Often I find it OK to consume what others deem trash and on occasion prefer the less desireables. After all this is light beer, walleye and mallard country to most. I like dark beer, Lakers, and divers. But NOT Common Mergs! Score 1 for convention! Good luck to all who go after the birds the remainder of the season!

    Horseshoe is frozen over but is only 1" thick. I did see a gut up near Brainerd walking out on a small lake to fish. Hopefully is will cool down to get out there. Long range forcast does not look good. Don

    The wait for ice fishing has begun. The lake has ice stretching as far as the eye can see from the south shore. The Rainy River has a skim of ice across it with only a few open areas left. All back bays are frozen over. A slight warm up is coming this week and weekend but colder nights will help create ice. Water temperature is 33.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Spearing for monster northern pike will begin Nov. 15th on Bostic Bay with 6" of ice where they will be spearing. On an average year, resort fish houses get out on the main lake around Dec 10th and stay on the ice through March 31st. ATV's and collapsible fish houses will get out a bit earlier based on when resorts who maintain ice roads feel it is safe. Use marked trails when ice roads open and don't deviate. Walleyes and saugers are staged up nicely along south shore including Pine Island, Zippel Bay, Long Point and Rocky Point. Early ice fishing is looking to be very good and it is coming soon. NW Angle is frozen in many areas and still some open water in neck down areas with current. Some locals who know the area well using snowmobiles for transportation to and from islands. Expectations are high as big schools of walleyes inhabited the area all the way up to freeze up. Resorts have equipment ready and are staging fish houses which could come early this year!

    with this weather the ice we were on will be toast. Stay off the ice.

    Wikipida states Navionics was aquired by Garmin October 27, 2017, just a couple weeks ago. Anyone else heard anything about this bold move?

    I believe Wikipeda cannot afford to publish fake news. If it was snopes I would not have posted. Should have more info in a week or so.

    These pictures were taken November 12 morson ontario lake of the woods. I didn't have a lot of time as i was deer hunting. But Sunday we checked ice past first set of island's and found 6 inches of ice. I have no idea what the south end of lake of the woods is like.

    Been hearing of some being out on the ice on a few local smaller lakes. A little too risky for my blood but....

    Papa - No I have not heard of this news. I assuming it is not fake news - this will certainly put Lowrance on an island with no mapping partners.

    Checked the ice out of the Casino landing this morning. 4+ inches of solid, clear ice out about 100 yards from the landing! It will not be long now before I will feel safe to walk out in a few sheltered spots! Cliff

    11/12/17 Found some larger lakes open in central MN this weekend, even though a lot of the smaller stuff has frozen. Still a lot of divers around, and a ton of mallards and big geese. Targeted ducks both days and saw mallards, wigeon, shovelers, greenwing teal, bluebills, ringnecks, canvasbacks, buffleheads, goldeneyes, hooded mergansers, and common mergansers as well as swans and Canada geese. Were selective about what we harvested and got some pretty, fat late season birds. Warm the beginning of the upcoming week, then cooling again. If we can find water open next weekend, we will be on it. Otherwise to the fields--lots of mallards and geese to be had there. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

    I am going to keep that option open. I also have some chores around cabin need to get done before winter. So either way will be good weekend.

    The report that I got was 4" of clear ice in Black Bay as of yesterday. Some of the other small bays are likely to be similarly frozen but the main basins will surely take a while longer.
