I think so. On Sunday morning I went down and punched a couple of holes. There was 6-7 inches on the south side, between the island, and that small public access west of In-Towne Marina. I talked to a guy at In-Towne, and he said they should be open for business this weekend.

There was also 6-7 inches of ice over by the public access, on the east side of the lake. I only went out about 20 yards at each spot, so be carefull. It looked slushy, and wet farther out. And with all the snow on the ice now, we probably only made aonther inch or so, since Sunday. Maybe someone else has more updated ice conditions.

I am going to try and get out this Saturday for the late afternoon & evening bite. Good luck!!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
