Does anyone have a report on ice conditions on 371 Bay on N. Long? How about the fishing?

Thanks!

Nobody knows cause nobody has been fishin it. I'm thinking you might want to find out for yourself rather than someone guessing for you.

I agree. I will get the house out on the 26th.(Ice permitting.)

there is (I think) a perm out there, off to the eastside of the bay, but there hasn't been normal activity out there, I haven't seen one person out there the whole year, except for that house

I am very familiar with the 371 bay on NLL. I don't think there has been much activity on that bay since the water levels have dropped. The fish cannot migrate from the big lake to the bay. Since the water level dropped, there have been very few perm. houses on the lake. It may be worth a try, but keep a back up plan in mind.

      What do you think Smurfy? No answer maybe we better send out a search party.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
