weather pays my bills and is a hobby. Accuweather as with almost all long range forecasts base their forecasts off a model called the GFS. It's funded by our taxes. It has serious faults, especially in the long range, but this time it does see what met's see outside of the modles. I doubt it will be as cold as you have posted, but highs in the low 30's and low's in the lower teens would not be uncommon. IF any snow does fall and stick-- knock a few degress off those temps. Nov does look to be a cold month, agst the normals.

Sheesh! I'm as excited for ice fishing as the next guy, but I sure could enjoy some more of this nice fall weather we have been having the past week! Man, we have had so many cloudy days and rain since September 1st that I thought we would never see the sun! Seems like fall just got here! My boat still has a full tank of gas and I still have minnows on hand that are just begging to be dangled in front of a Walleye's nose next week!

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
