The wind broke up whatever ice had formed today. We are already experiencing a heavy frost tonight, so we will see what tomorrow brings.

tomorrow looks like pretty good southwest winds. then saturday night looks good for fishing the south,south/west side...rocky reef maybe? ...full moon! wow! i bet theres not a problem with boat traffic either.

i just keep thinking now has got to be the best time of the year for the biggest possible walleye. the general public thinks "fall fishing" & "ice fishing". everyone talks about how good fall fishing is and how good early icefishing is but there are only the very few of you guys out there right now. this has to be prime time!

next fall i will be prepaired to do some extreme walleye fishing late in the year. the boat is at the dealer...i am very lucky mercury is covering the bill to get the 115 optimax running smoothly to specs. it only has 255 hours and its a '04. i am taking advantage of the time its in the shop to finalize a deal for a 9.9 pro-kicker and new walleye master splash guards...the vantage will go on the port side. having a reliable 4 stroke kicker will make all the difference for trolling in extreme conditions, not to mention the security it gives while being out on mille lacs at any given time.

im in it for the long haul...like i said before, someday i hope to live at mille lacs.

Paul, I am curious if you offer any "special FMer discounts" on your fish house rentals? I am not quite sure on the dates as of right now, but I am definitely looking for a rental sometime this season.

cove bay is all socked in. all the way out to the point. there was skim ice yesterday morning, with a low of around 10 deg last night, there should be a inch or two of ice this morning. last year on the saturday after thanksgiving, i fished the north end in my boat and came home and walked out on the ice in front of my house and fished with tip-ups and sucker minnows...............tom fellegy

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.

      When I was a kid, I used to ask my dad to take me ice fishing--he would always say "wait 'till it gets warmer"......
