The last day I was out, Oct.,22, the water temps on Big Bay were around 43 degrees. Some of the smaller bays have already frozen over and opened up again. Up to 3/4" of ice on part of Pike Bay at one time!

Ice up all depends upon the weather that we get.

The last couple of years there were a few guys still fishing at the time you plan to come up, but on a couple of years there was enough ice to walk out and fish at that time!

Based on current water temps and weather forecast you'd better bring your ice chisel...

Three of us were on the water Sunday. It was a beautiful day. Calm and once the sun came out it was acutally very nice. A late season gift and the eyes were biting. Water temps were 38 degrees around Moc Point and 40 degrees in Big Bay. Took the trip from Moc Point around Pine Island. We did not see any ice but I can imagine that the smaller bays will freeze over very soon.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
