A cold clear night gave way to a sunrise with ice.

Not everyone is happy about it. grin.gif Going out for the last hurrah on Sag today. That just might do it for the season as the ice is forming on my lake in the shallow bays. I was hoping to get in at least one day of fishing in November. smirk.gif

That picture made my day. I have been following the weather near Grand Marais just hoping that it would stay cool enough to make ice. It looks like my wish may come true. I just love the first ice walleyes.

Well, it was just a shot in the dark. Looks like the landing on caribou on the other shore. I didnt even think about facing east.

Nice picture by the way. I wouldn’t mind having some good ice right after deer season.

Long lake is private correct?

I just looked at my new St. Louis County fishing map guide, by Sportsman’s Connection. And from Caribou lake rd that would be facing north. I was way off. shocked.gif

Speaking of the fishing map guide. This updated book is great, allot of great information. Also a little more detail than the last version. It has even more information and tips from tackle shop owners and guides on specific lakes. I can’t forget to mention, updated stocking information too. I would recommend this guide to any one from beginners to the pro's.

Yes Long is a private lake. No fish in there either. wink.gif

You must be talking about the new Sportsman's Connection map books. Your right they are great books. I have an old one and was looking at their site the other day. Updated books and with 170 lake maps for St Louis county plus lake information. I use the Navionics chip in my H20c but still find the Sportsman's Connection book useful. You can see them here.

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
