I am hoping to get on the water Sunday, not sure where yet....my ambition is for the same area as Rip. Sat taking the wife to look for a new glider, Monday I am just gonna take it easy and ride my mower around the yard one last time this year, drink beer and relax.

Heading up for the weekend to Namakan, for the 5th trip this summer. Thinking of portaging over to Rainy for the day on sunday and hitting the reefs. We had great fishing there 3 weeks ago when we camped on the east end for 5 days and the biggun's should still be there, only maybe a bit shallower with the cooler water temps.

Everyone have a fun, safe weekend.

Weather report says winds SSE 10-20 mph on Sat, I may wait till Sun or Mon to get on the big water, winds are more favorable those days.

Anyone seeing anything different for wind forecast?

I have no weekend plans at the moment. I'm looking out the window at a very gray looking day. I was on Fish lake Friday morning. It was my first time out in a few weeks so it was good to get back in the boat.

Have a fun and safe weekend everyone!!

BC that would be cool, I'm looking forward to seeing some pics from up there. Sounds like a good time. I'm going to go finish up the blind this afternoon and throw out some dekes and sit back and enjoy the weather. Good luck again this year.

      Yes the Navonics phone app is as accurate as more expensive ones and you don't need to spend the extra $$ on another unit!  The app costs under $10!!

      Hopefully things will start to happen soon.  The next 15 days of overnight lows are starting to stay below freezing. Maybe a few test holes will have to happen for me next week!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Looks like we might have walkable ice in 2 weeks
