I heard that it looks like I should be able to put a boat in at the gap this weekend---can anyone give me the low down on the ice conditions in the gap/four mile bay?

Yah, I don't know if it'll be open or not? I can tell you it's getting closer! I was looking at the Clementson Resort Web site and they are saying the river is open past Clementson a little ways. So it is moving and opening up, but...There is a lot of river to go before reaching the bay. Something like 14 miles of river opening in two days??? I dunno, ya might have to fish the river.

I'm coming up this Saturday and personally it doesn't matter to me. Bay or river, theres more than enough water to fish in the river and the Sturgeon fishing is just as good if you know where to look!

I'm just hoping it's not gonna be pouring rain all day on Saturday...Common nice weather!!!!! grin.gif

I called Schusters this morning. He said the river is open to Baudette. It is also open across from the resort and 4 mile bay is all open. He thought by tomorrow you might be able to launch and get to 4 mile bay.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
