I wanted to share with you the ice coming off the lake today. You could hear the ice this evening with the winds blowing hard before the rains came. It was truly Mother Nature at her finest!

Fisheyes,

All of those pictures were taken on the east and south east side of the lake. With forecasted winds out of the NW today the lake will be pushing even more ice up down there.

If you do get down this way don't be afraid to stop in and introduce yourself.

Cool pics, reminds me of when I got stuck in garrison and couldn't go to work in the cities because 169 had a 10' wall of ice blocking it... and going around isn't fun, so just stay up north. cool.gif

Orlip, you were right on the money brother! I will buy you a beverage in the near future. Hopefully when we meet up at a FM gathering. You nailed it! Good luck out there.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.

      When I was a kid, I used to ask my dad to take me ice fishing--he would always say "wait 'till it gets warmer"......
