Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today. Needless to say I did not like what I found. Mostly open water is what I came across. Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall. Come on colder temps...
Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.
