It'll be close on the ice, last year we had 5-6" at this point in the year. We would have had more but it was pretty crappy with warm temps and rain the week prior. We were driving on Fish the weekend after.

Just need that COLD SNAP!!!

This is a great event if you can make it.

Check out the Iceleaders forum for all the details. Fish Lake is about 1/2 hour from Duluth. I doubt we will be driving vehicles. Im guessing wheelers and sleds will be close unless we start getting cold.

I day trip to fish lake usually twice a year from the Twin Cities. From St. Paul it's about 2 1/2 hour drive straight up 35, nice and easy if you ask me.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
