Actually saw a little skim ice back in a bay while hunting this morning. But some 40's in the forecast so it won't be any time soon.

How are the water temps now just out of curiosity? Headed up to the cabin on Saturday to bring my Otter and Jiffy back to Duluth.

Actually saw some skim ice in the main lake area this morning in calm water. Almost enough to take the mind off deer hunting. But why rush it, right??!!??<<>>!!?? What a problem to have, hunt deer?? fish?? Hunt ducks?? fish??

38.6 this am in Frazer Bay.... Burr.... If you are going to be out there, keep it safe. Now is not the time to be swimming out there.

Just need a cold calm night to lock her up. Too bad that particular senerio is not in the forecast for while.

Cliff is s going to have to Pontoons on the Hilton

It should go without saying, but the annual message is to remember to wear a life jacket ANY time you are on the open water when it's this cold.

Fishing was pretty poor. Water temps are way high for this time of the year.

Thanksgiving weekend they will prolly be bout right.

Always next year though. Gonna be on for the full moon next november.

Camping was awesome though and fishing in the snow was great too.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
