Like Kelly said great if you are heading South East, fairly tough in any other direction.

Up down over stick the skis in a drift dig out, up down over stick the skis in a drift dig out over and over again. Some poor soul yesterday stopped and talked and was hating life, said his arms where sore after the ride and was scared to look in his portable.

Jonny, the only thing to remember is "When in dought, throttle it out!!" Then you won't get stuck. The fish house might take a beating though.

good luck with the truck. bring a sled and just run respectively, don't let these guys scare you. it's like sledding out in the middle of nowhere anywhere esle in the state during the cold, wicked, dead of winter!!! take your time and use your head before making a decision up there. good luck fishin!!!!!!!!!!!

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
