Well it is darn cold outside right now. My thermometer says -34 and my job for the day is to watch the 3 kids and put wood in the stove. I suppose I will do some cleaning also so the better half is happy when she gets home from work! grin.gif

If you are venturing out today, bundle up, fill your gas tank and cover your skin.

Stay warm and be safe today!

Wasn't that cold here this morning. -17 is all it is here in NE montan. suppose to warm a little this week. I'm ready for the soft water to come. Have all my rods cleaned and new line on. I'm pumped for the new season to start. Got to get my passport done so I can go to Canada and wet the line. CAJ

when you're done cleaning I know another place close by that could use a little vacuuming... grin.gif

FYI...Fleet has all their rods & combos 1/3 off right now, didn't have the rods I was looking for. Gander has 40% off the same gear, almost picked up a couple St.Croix's but I can't stand those handles.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?

      awesome fish!!!!  see ya in March!!

      Had great fishing out from McKinley in 28 FOW on Friday-Saturday.  Caught a great mix of dinks, eaters, and slot fish.  I ended up catching five 22-25" walleyes, but my guest on Saturday (Chris Larson) caught the largest at 25½".  Best action was using a chub on a plain hook, but small jigs and rattlers also had action.  Walleyes still didn't like the sucker minnows. I had 8½" of ice where I was (was 6½" the previous week).  But be very careful out there because there are bad spots as people have mentioned.

      Anybody walking out yet? Preferably would like to know Glenwood side..
