Just got back from there. The local reports are right on. Had the best luck pulling crawlers around 10'. Best times were from 11-3.

The big perch are starting to bite out there pretty good now. Try wax worms, crawlers, and minnows on bobbers. Looks like they are starting to get into their fall pattern which is always a fun time.

We caught good numbers of perch trolling cranks this weekend. No particular areas, but once you find a pocket of perch, troll through it a few times and you'll hammer them.

      What do you think Smurfy? No answer maybe we better send out a search party.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
