Yeah! I noticed the same thing. I think it is probably from the big fire. Is the wind from the North???

If you look at the National Weather Service Lacrosse website, they have a satellite map showing the smoke drifting into our area.

Funny thing is that I went up to the cities tonight, and no sign of smoke. The air currents must have moved right through the Rochester area.

All the smoke in the area was from a couple of barns that burned to the ground right outside of Pine Island.

Those two barns could not of produced that much smoke to fill that big of an area. Plus the amount of smoke that they did put off would not of lingerd around that long.

DT....Maybe it's time to take off the tinted sunglasses? Get yourself a nice pair of those rose colored ones they talk about.

Today everyone is fishing and I'm working....but, I'm getting caught up and during the week, when everyone else is working, I'm going fishing....got a tip on a good crappie spot.

All the smoke and haze Friday was from the Ham Lake (boundary waters) fire as mentioned earlier.

Just fyi.

It's strange to think of smoke being able to make it all the way down here, but with the right wind...

Last year we had a smoky haze from fires that were burning all the way up in northern Alberta. That was crazy.

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
