Last Tuesday we fished a mile or two out over rocks in 22' of water. We caught numerous 'eyes between 8:00 and 9:30 in the evening including a 28" a 27" and several 26." You don't need to go out that far to find big fish. smile.gif

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the night ban doesn't come off until Monday the 11th at 12:01 a.m.

Night closure: No one may fish for any species or possess fishing gear on the lake from 10 p.m. through 6 a.m. starting at 10 p.m. May 14 and ending at 12:01 a.m. June 11.

This means you can start fishing Monday morning June 11th, at 12:01AM

Hey, Geeksquad may have had another type of "fishing" he was referring to and he did clearly state his girlfriend was going to be on board. He likely isn't planning on having fishing gear on board. blush.gifwink.gif

That's another funny part of the regs...

You have to come in by 10pm Sunday night to get off the lake, and then wait 2 hours to go back out and night fish again after midnight. I suppose they have to make it a black and white line in the regs, but just thought that was a little funny as we will be staying up there during this time frame and probably fishing.... cool.gif

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

      February 23rd, 2017:
         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
