Snow

6 posts in this topic

It sure was nice sitting out this morning watching for deer with the snow just piling down around mazeppa from 6-well still now. Only saw a couple small does but it was very nice, like the perfect postcard with snow falling. I could really use a little cooler weather to start making some ice and then the snow can come!

Unbelievable how just two or three days ago we were tippin the scales at close to 70 degrees and now today you wake up with about 4" of snow on the ground. Can't say im complaining cause along with snow comes ice and we all know what that means. wink.gif

Last year I was on the backwaters by wabasha the second weekend of december and there was only about 1.5" of ice and only .75" of it was clear. But Im with you tyler Bring on the ice asap. I sure hope those posted signs arent up this year or that would a heck of a walk from fishermans to the high banks.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
