ice on the big pond

5 posts in this topic

Woke up this morning to see the first ice on mille lacs this morning. Granted it was all piled up on shore. It will melt with the warmer temps this weekend but atleast the water temps are getting cooler so hopefully by Thanksgiving we might have ice.

I took a side trip through Isle SUnday after checking the fish house in storage ( it won't be long now!) - the entire bay before Fr Hennepin state park is skimmed.

went to garrison to check my house in storage yesterday as well.... no ice, but I don't think it will be long. as soon as the air temps drop and stay down, were good to go. the water is cold enough, just need the air to cool down for the winter!! after working on the house for a couple hours, I'm ready for it to go out!!

There is a good weather forecast from sunday on. It says the high temps will be in the mid 20's and the lows almost in the single digits to run into Dec.. That will put a good layer of ice on the lake. It won't be long now. Hopefully the ice fishing will be better than my deer hunting.

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
