We just got off our small lake by our cabin northeast of Deer River and there is about 9 inches of ice and some slush. There is still several inches of snow on the lake and 2-3 inches of snow fell last night (Friday). No vehicles driving on the lake yet of course. We saw people on Bowstring, Cutfoot and lots of people were quite far out on Winnie from the Birches access. No ice reports from any of these locations though since we were only scooping places to fish this week coming up!

Glenn,

I haven't been out since this past Wed. and that was over by G.R. for panfish. From what I've been hearing from reliable sources, most lakes have 8-10" of ice with some slush and snow on top. I have seen a couple trucks out on the south side of Big Ball Club where the spear houses are, but HAVE NOT heard of anyone else driving veh's on any other lakes. I believe it's still atv or snowmobiling out there. I'm hoping to get out later in the week, hopefully w/ some new goodies from Santa to try out! grin.gif We got a couple inches of snow Friday and it's coming down pretty good as I speak!

Brian

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
