Nope, some open water out there, now. However, I would be surprised to see it out by the weekend. If it does go out by the weekend, its going to be blown out by the strong South East winds they are predicting. That might make the north side of the lake messy.

I think you are better off looking south 10-15 miles, where the ice is off, or almost off. LeHommeDue and Geneva will get the last of the ice off today. Minnewaska and Osakis are both open.

I hope Miltona will be early next week, maybe over the weekend, if we get some rain.

Don't worry, though, there are lots of chores to do, now that the snow is gone. Just stop by I can let you borrow a rake! grin.gif

Sounds like big wind coming. That should eat the ice of Miltona off.

You don't need to go to Miltona to catch slab crappies. They are bitting real well on some of the tiny lakes in the area already.

I am planning on pulling the boat up and putting it on the lift this weekend. Do you think that is going to happen?

East of the flats is all clear except for Tamerac Bay, which was full of ice, plus about 1/4 mile out from there, when I looked about 11:00 this morning. I would guess that the its all clear on the west side, except maybe by Johnson's RV Park, and maybe into Lucky Acres bay.

The wind is definitely piling the ice onto shore in the Sandy Beach area.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.
