Everything is open except for some small farm type ponds.. I will be out hunting ducks/geese the next three days in the area and will let you know what I find for ice... Sounds like we have some cold air moving in early next week..

I was hoping to slide a little aluminum boat in at a buddies cabin this weekend and just go around with the trolling motor. Do you think ill have a problem sliding a boat in the lake this weekend?

You should have no problems. If there is any ice, just smash through it.

There is no ice on Most/all lakes... We may get a little film on some along the edges, but I'm planning on hitting a few lakes tomm-thru sunday...

The real little, shallow lakes will have some ice but we are talking a film instead of inches....

I did, but I used my duck boat instead of the guide boat to chase them fishies.... Did real well actually, I surprised myself with my ability to use my Marcum Flasher hanging over the side of the boat instead of using my regular electronics...

      sunday hopefully back on the ice  
    • eyeguy 54
      and they will smell minty fresh!

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.  
    • IceHawk
      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.

      I broke a bunch also at first  my bear paws just squeeze a little to hard! You definitely need to be carefull when putting them on to much pressure and another one bites the dust. Great bobber and concept can be used for a slip or fixed bobber just a little fragile. 
    • IceHawk
      Some good sticks there!

      Looks good Royce hopefully you can put it to good use soon. The ice is sure getting thick if it keeps up I will be ordering a extension for my K drill soon or bring out the  StrikeMaster and extension.
