I hope you are right. I just went through all the ice fishing gear. Re spooled, re tied, cleaned and made sure that all the jigs in the tackle box were cleaned of old line (I get lazy on the ice sometimes). Lets hope that the cold keeps up and the wind dies down.

I just hope we don't get much snow this weekend before it freezes up. That could be the worse thing for ice.

If you are close, give a report of how the ice is coming along Friday or Saturday. Hopefully we can get out Saturday.

This weekend is predicted to be windy. Lets hope so, so that it blows all the snow off the lakes!

Marbles: You couldn't pay me enuff to be on that ice now. Been anxious but not stupid. Got out & checked a couple of spots and looks covered but still thin yet. I did some leg-work for ya & would not recommend anything. Try & catch up w/ ya let you know.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
