Blackduck lake is frozen over. Can Red Lake be far behind? Unless it warms up or the wind blows should be walking out on Thanksgiving!

I work at Ponemah which is near the point where LRL and URL meet. Ice as far as I can see on the LRL.

I should clarify. The north end fo LRL is ice as far as I can see. The south end was still wide open when I drove by this morning.

Stephen- As far as I know as soon as you can drive out on the lake, the plows are out too. Rogers , hudecs and West Wind do a very excellent job clearing roads!!

Not much longer till we can be drilling holes.

Thanks for the information wood. I love this site when winter comes around. Everyone is willing to help the next guy out, which is tough to get out of a local when the hard water comes around. I'll be up to URL on the 4th, 5th and 6th of January. Anyone else? I'd like to finally meet some regs from here and have a drink or two. The captain morgan is on me.

Fish On!

Stephen, people usually can drive on around Christmas. Sometimes earlier and sometimes later. Maybe earlier this year if things stay cold. Temps have been in the single digits at night and upper teens to low 20's in the day. The resorts will usually have a trail marked onto the lake as soon as the ice is safe.

Fourplay- Ol'Marbleeye has disappeared again! I heard from him a couple of weeks ago,so we may have to go wake his butt up and get him going again.

Thanks for the information fourplay, now I've really got the itch!!! Could someone verify that the "usual" drive out time with a vehicle is around Christmas. Does anyone know whether the plows begin at this time also? Any info would be appreciated. Whats the temps been like as of late?

Fish On!

If you are up there on those dates in January, I will definitely be there if the Captain is on you. Nothing like a great day of fishing and sailing with the Captain.

Ben,
I will definately be up there on those dates. Stop by the Shooks Royal Motel and we can hook up from there or email me at tiebel1@aol.com and we'll set something up. I'm thinking about heading up this weekend too.

      Nice Job Jeff. Love the secret potion you know how scent can play a key role in the bite.    Wow some good prizes for this years event. People come on out and join the fun. We all will do are best to help you ice a few cats, maybe even your first. 
    • IceHawk
      Those are some dandies . The eye bite has been a little rough lately.  What worked to put those two nice ones topside?

      First off welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Not sure about a road plowed on Woman but broad water and lantern bay are good  places to find panfish on that lake. More than likely there will be a truck trail to both as they are pretty popular spots. Good luck

      Fishing as Good Friday night then Saturday not so much. Pictures from Friday, none from Saturday because everyone knows what one 5” perch looks like.

      Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

      First timer checking in. My folks bought a place on Child/Boy River. Looking forward to spending more time in the area. Wondering if anyone knows if there are roads plowed on Woman Lake? Was hoping to try and catch an evening/morning bite this week. Thanks

      Looking forward to it.  Here are some more prizes.
