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.

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
