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

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.

      With the weather conditions what are peoples  thoughts with their well houses. I'm going up north till Sunday afternoon wondering if   i should take my house off or not. I have a  truck and no 4 wheeler. Don't want it too be stuck out there when I get back.
