Well just checked NOAA.Org and the weather there says slight chance of raind Fri Sat and Sun. Suppose that means we are gonna get nice and damp, probably see some snow, and at least a 40mph wind.

Just what the DR ordered.

Have no fear, my Brothers. My sources tell me that we will have good weather for the opener and not much for wind. Most of the TV news and internet sites are saying the same thing.

Some are saying poor weather with wind and rain. So do we go with the majority or stick with the negative people?

Yeah -- hope for the best but assume for gale-force wind and periods of snow crazy.gifcrazy.gifwink.gif

It doens't seem to me that I have ever had a nice opener, well not in the last 4 or so years, I think thats just what it's like all the time, usually the next day is nice, kinda like the crappy weather is tradition.. Oh well fishing is fishing.

I prefer the crappy weather on opener it protects the resource as the 612ers do not fish as much and then I go during the week and have the lake practically to myself.

Dear Lord let it be cold, rainy and windy all weekend. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share

      I found some ice!!! Not exactly much, and there are swans in the picture indecating open water too. But it's a start.
