It is my understanding that if you are on private property it is possible but i am not sure if tonite would be legal... confused.gif

That's probably a lot of money to be leaving sitting out in the field. It would suck to get out there tom. and no decoys. I would just get up a little earlier and set them in the morning. I know before that first day in Canada I can't sleep anyway.

from my understanding it is completely legal to set your dekes up the night prior to opener in a private location

we talked about doing it but decided against it because sometimes condensation (dew) tends to form on decoys left overnight...plus getting up an extra 20 or 30 minutes early isn't a big deal for us

good luck tomorrow morning! Can't wait!

Dew makes them shiny and that is no good.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
