Weather has turned

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.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
