Iowa has some of the best fishing in the country. The Ia DNR does not regulate by tradition like up here. Okoboji and Spirit are better year-round for size and numbers of any species than most lakes in Minn. Bass fishing in the spring is promoted and not a no-no. There are probably lakes in Minn that one could fish on April 15 and catch several smallies up to 5 lbs. We will never know. I do know that one could and did and so did several others without hurting the fishery. The same thing could be proven up here if the DNR would smarten up and anglers would realize that there favorite water would not go fishless. No lake in Minn gets anymore pressure than those in NW Ia and they can handle it as could most up here. Been that way for years down there and just gets better even with all the t's and out-of staters like me, coming down.

P-I will be there the 29th same as the last dozen or so years.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe

      Buddy was checking a few lakes yesterday and found 4.5" on a small lake on "White" ice and when he went to the "Clear" ice it was 2.5-3.5"  He's hoping around today to see what he can find but he's not expecting too much.  Few shallow protected lakes were covered so it'll only be time.

      I know a lot can change, but what are the odds with this upcoming weather that we will be making our scheduled ice fishing trip that would start on Wed (14th) using 4 mile bay to get out to the lake?
