Well as of right now I can not see the end of my driveway due to a total white out. Man it is snowing and blowing like crazy, had some deer in the yard that we were watching and as soon as the wind hit poof they were gone! shocked.gif

Sure glad I put the plow on tonight, the weather man was right this time. Hopefully the wind will not affect the lakes that have ice on them, we all now how that can make a mess of thin ice!

Have to go to bed so I can work (play) in the early am with the 4wheeler plo shocked.gif! grin.gif

Hey Scott, we got about 3" over here, its about zero degrees out right now too. I think this might mess with some of the smaller lakes, which is too bad. Hopefully not.

By the way it will be later in the week when I stop by, kinda got busy as Im sure you can imagine.

Well I think the wind helped blow off the snow on most of the lakes - even the smaller ones, it was a pretty light snow. Lets just hope we get a good stretch of cold before any major snow now and things should look good. I know theres snow in the forecast again for tonight and tomorrow... hmm

If things stay the way they are without much snowfall, houses will be going up real soon.

Guys fishing both Irving and Turtle this evening!

I checked out a little local lake and found anywhere from 3 to about 4.5" already!!

I would guess you'll be able to pull light houses out over X-Mas break.

I can't remember not having clients out in the sleepers the week of New Years!

Spots are. I'm sure a line of spear houses WILL be set up along the pines Sat morning though.

The far North end of Bemidji was wide open at 1:00 P.M. today...being Thursday. Most of the lake is frozen, it froze over Tuesday morning/afternoon. My office is on the south end of the lake....I expect to see guys walking out there tomorrow afternoon. I have no idea hos thick the ice is...but it looks nice and clear and the cracks look thick.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
