Not much, probably none by now. There was ice out 150 yards on Minnewawa in front of my cabin on deer opener but most if not all was gone by Tuesday morning.

I was staying on Rat Lake last weekend for deer hunting. The lake was pretty much frozen over on Saturday but by the time we left on Sunday, Most of the lake had re-opened. Same goes for the Big Sandy flowage.

Swamp lake south of Aitkin is froze over as of sat. There was about an inch of ice. Hopefully the weather forecast will stay the same for next week, that will freeze all the lakes up and should be walkable by the first weekend of Dec. It says the highs will be mid 20's with lows almost in the single digits.

just got back from Emily area today- there are a lot of frozen over lakes in that area, I'm sure some of them should be ready to walk on by Dec. 1st. I even heard of one guy going out on one of the smaller lakes already.

I will be on fleming next weekend for sure. I hope we get a little snow on the ice first, I just don't like or ever had good luck at ice fishing with no snow. we need the snow for movement, to cover ourselves like camo, especially on shallow lakes.

its a good thing I have to work throughout this weekend, becuase I don't want to go out on marginal ice anymore. be careful brothers this weekend.

Knoppers: Think we will have typical Fleming Lake crappies this year or do you think that with the "die off" they will be a little bigger? Just thought you might have some insight on that being it seems like you fish it a lot.

fished fleming on friday, 6.5-8 inches of ice, used the wheeler. nothing but perch, did not even see a crappie on the camera. only thing was many perch, one sunnie, and one small northern. maybe the crappies are getting hit hard, with the die off and the fishing pressure.

This warm weather isnt ruining the ice too much up here is it? I'd hate to have my break wasted with unsafe ice!

Was out on Clear and Dam this week. Had a good 8" yet yesterdy. Sunny and 40 today, but I think it will be fine for ATV and foot traffic. There were some smaller day houses being pulled off, but I think they were concerned with them freezing back in when it gets cold again. ( I hope )

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.
