I took a look as I am going to be up there as well. It looks MUCH better then last year. This year weekend avg thurs through sunday: 57, 66, 68, 74, soooo much better if it stays then the 98 last year...

Fishing is generally pretty good for us, many lakes and options in that area. Good Luck

Water temps on Blackduck today was 57. Had some folks have done real well, limiting out and doing catch and release in just 2 to 3 hours, while a few have only gotten a few. One group that the three limited was from 8 to 11 am; and then Friday night had two that limited and caught and release hit Blackduck at 6pm and were back before 8.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
