mrklean,

Itt's a grat time to go and the ice is generally good and thick, (Extension time) that time of year. The 4 wheeler use will depend on the snow at that time of year. I'll be up there the middle weekend and possibly a trip the weekend before. You'll need to call around regarding a sleeper. If you're able to fish midweek your options will likely be more open.

We went up close to that time last year and I had to put a 9" extension on my auger and it was pretty much down the whole way to the engine, it was crazy, there was that much ice formed, but hey, we are in MN

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
