Thinking of putting the boat in today in Pike bay. Just wondering if I have to worry about any ice or if it is all open? Thanks guys.

Got the boat out today in Pike bay. Ran great! Cruised around slow until I was pretty sure there wasnt any ice floating around and didnt see anything around Hoodoo at least. I didnt head up by the narrows though. Looked like Daisy bay was really close to opening up too. Wont be long now until everything is open I think especially with some rain in the forcast starting tomorrow night. Cant wait! Thanks for the info as always guys. See ya on the water!

My in-laws have a place in between isle of pines and mocc point and the ice was out about 30 feet and very black. It almost looked like some open water around mocc point. I would say you have a good chance of getting into portage bay by the weekend if these temps hold. cool.gif

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
