Well, It's Almost Over

3 posts in this topic

Water temps are in the upper 40s, overnight lows later this week in the 20s, dark by 6:30. My lake will probably be froze over by or shortly after the weekend. At least my only access to the main lake.

We've got a full moon coming this week I'm taking a couple of vacation days strung together with a couple of days off and am going to hit it hard. This could be the final run for 07. Frankly, with all that's happened this year I'll be glad to get it over with. Come on May. smirk.gif

Hey gunflint,

When is your normal freeze up date up there? I am hoping for a couple more boat outings here in Ely. I don't think we will have ice here until Thanksgiving...maybe second weekend of deer season.

Last year it was the 20th of Oct. The only access to the lake is a shallow bay that freezes up earlier than the rest of the lake. Some of the bigger / deeper lakes stay open a while longer.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
