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!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.
