I can't wait anymore for the ice to come. I think i am going to freeze over my toilet and fish from that. I hope this happens fast this year. Hoping to get up early and alot this year. Can't wait to visit some of the resorts and fish. Sorry for the odd post, i just can't deal with this warm weather.

I know what you mean but it will be here soon. The temps look to stay in the high teens and low 20s at night so that should get things started with the day time highs in the low to mid 30s.Think ICE wink.gif

Just a thin layer forming around the edges of smaller lakes such as 100 acre Portage Lake next to Sand Lake. There is ice most of the day on small waterholes along roads. It is coming!

I just hope we have some decent ice by the middle of december. This whole global warming or season shifting thing is starting to piss me off.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
