They turned on the arreators on the north east end of the lake over where bloody enters in/Tippeota Point. There are alot of houses that are within the signs that were put up today!!!! If you know anyone who might have there house up there and might not get to it agin this weekend better make a trip to move them...

Folks, be careful on the north side of Shetek. With the flowage of the inlet and the airators the ice is kinda funny. Some spots will be thinner than others. Not sayin don't go fishin, just saying be careful.

Very good advice. Thats not only true for shetek but for every lake with an aerator just because its bubbling up in one area it doesnt mean that there might not be a stray bubble somewhere else close by.

ya that is very true but when we were there it wasn't a problem at all. we were right smack dab in betweeen two thin ice signs and the ice was still at least 16 if not more.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      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!!!
