With the weather like it has been, some last minute soft water fishing will probably be in order. The are still quite a few grouse wandering around out there also.

I did make it up there and most bays I saw were frozen on Thanksgiving day and probably should have kept making ice every night we were up there, however wind finally started kicking in today so that will slow down some of the process. But all in all it seems like a heck of a better start this year compared to last, some rock solid ice should be on the lake come Christmas Holiday time. So hopefully good fishing will be had by all!

      This ice season  has been in the books on the st croix for about a week now. I ended my year out there with a 50" sturgeon.

        What is working for 2 fishing buckets, ion auger & Vexlar for walking out on early/late ice?   Appreciate to hear what works for walking out for a hole hopping Crappie freak

      I have been busy with Work ... went down to check it out North access this morning.  Definitely good enough to walk out.  a tall guy walked a big sled right out.  was also a clam 2 seater pull over out on the ice.  The wind however is blowing very cold!  I do not have a sled for walking out ... so hoping for ATV ice soon!  I went searching at Princeton Wallmart if they had any leftover sleds, no go.  Will have to pick one up this week.   Bob
