My ice gear is mothballed.

Ditto, but it almost came back out.

as of last night(Wednesday) one of the large reservoirs north of Duluth still had 30" of ice on the main basin, and myself and two buddies owned the whole lake. I don't know about other area lakes, but I have no reason to think that they will be any different. By the end of this weekend the ice around shore will probably be melted again, but till then I think we should be good to go. If anyone has any doubts about the thickness of the ice I suggest that they go take a look for themselves.

Fishing was only fair, but with better weather it may get better? Otherwise, we were catching crappies.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
