Do you guys think next weekend may be the ticket or is my guess as good as yours. Will the fishing ever heat up like the springs before or are we to late

Just got back from the river today. To get in at birchdale you need to go through a 40 yard trail of broken ice to get to the "open" water.

I left there today around noon and most of the open water from yesterday froze over with a skim of ice-practically making most of the river unfishable. As much as we wanted to, we didnt even put our boat in the water.

I would say the last two days of the season will be the best- and that if we can get a little warmer weather this week.

Could you guys please direct me to bait and tackle shops between Birchdale and Baudette.I'm planning my first trip to the Rainy this week. Also, what about budget minded accomodations in the area? Thanks,

It's nice to have friends in the right places,

      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?
