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.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
