I hope the forecast you found is correct cause the 10 day forecast I found on weather.com doesn't look as good. frown.gif

Come on man, everyone knows that a 15 day forecast is far more accurate than a 10 day.... wink.gif

I would rather have the colder weather for sure but it just shows how much different the forcasts can be.

Now, Carp, you really don't believe that forecast, do you? I mean, the weatherman can't even get it right three days in advance no less a week or two. Did you consult Al Gore to get a balanced view?? Mike and I are still pounding the backwater pannies and the average temps don't hit freezing until the end of November. You'll have to join us some Saturday. Winter will be here soon enough.

Ok perhaps I'm being abit optimistic. I've never been ice fishing until after Dec 1st. I thought about consulting Algore for a more balanced view, but I decided that it would just burn too much carbon to try to send him a message of any kind. Besides its common knowledge that we will be ocean fishing here in Minnesota in about 10 years due to the Hummer driving, Republican loving induced rise of ocean levels. But thats only if we survive the Mother Earth plagues of the locusts, frogs, etc..

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
