all i have to say is WOOOOWWWWW. I love the river as the snow and cold come, no boats and nothing but bald eagles and hogs. The mr heater kept us warm and the fishing, well you wouldnt believe me if i told you. One last trip for me, maybe this wknd. So many folks flock up there in sept. if only they knew

Yoe Doc....You may wanna take a look at Sportsmans webcam, rivers iced over. Clementson resort is reporting ice there as well on the river. I was out in the kick boat Sunday for the last trip of the fall season, the brrrr cold came thru that nite. With this weather I'd say it's pretty much done man and I'll be taking my first cautious steps out onto the hardwater in the next coupla 3 days or so!

So if you're coming this weekend you'd better bring the ice gear eh!

wow thats quick, we were up Fri/sat, there was ice but nothing like early spring and had no real issue getting out. You might be right, might be time to go after the first ice monster pikes.

Sorry Dude,

The river siezed-up at 3:47 PM yesterday. Can't see it breaking back out unless they do something crazy with the flow (wouldn't be the first time).

Time to switch gears or gear anyway.

You may have something with that pike thing. Baudette Bay has been solid since the 18th and might just have some decent ice.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds

          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!
