Things are going to start happening! The temperature is 2 below, but the way the wind is cranking I'm sure the big lakes aren't getting a whole lot done as far as ice making. The smaller lakes that were already iced will be fishable this weekend I would guess.

Does anyone know what's actually frozen. Eddie? Nisswa? Upper Gull? Round? Trying to decide on coming up this weekend and if my only options are south long or clark I'll wait Cmon eddie. If the wind would just quit blowing they all would be iced over.

I walked out a ways on Crow Wing and found there to be at least 1 1/2 inches everyplace I checked. I would not take a chance on it being thicker anyplace else. By the weekend I would assume that most smaller lakes would have fishable ice.

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.
