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!

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
