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.

Maybe 1 inch of ice on the thickest areas. You might be safe if you were a duck! shocked.gif

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!

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
