How is Rainy Lake doing as far as ice goes? Is it still covered?

How about the part in Voyageurs NP? Is it navigable (no ice)?

Thanks

Ice is out! Went out officially on the 18th. No ice just lots of debris floating around. Lake is the lowest point of year. About 3' lower than summer normal. Pike were in 1-6fow in weedy bays. The big females were dropping eggs. Saw lots of fish swimming around too. No 40"+ fish but saw some big gators swimming around.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
