Last year, the bays were freezing over during the last week of October. It feels like we're going to slid past that mark this year. Any predictions on when the first bays will ice over?

I'm going with sometime during the week of November 5th. cool.gif

I think that you are probably close on the Nov. 5 date.

Just looking at the 15 day forcast and it calls for low to mid 30's for highs and low to mid 20's for lows by Nov. 7th.

If that holds open water for awhile yet. I will be on the west end Nov.8-12th trollin skis. Last year was colder and we still got on, though getting off at night was a close call.

Keep those water temp reports comin.

Yeah, I'm beginning to wonder if my initial prediction was correct. I think it might be a little later now.

I'll toss out November 14th... just because the weather has been weird this year.

Hopefully, there'll be more than enough by mid-December to make it worth a trip up!

      This crunchy snow is tearing Finns feet up. I am thinking of getting him some booties so he run around without making the house look like a murder happened

      Was sledding both on and off the staked trail yesterday.  Was COLD!!!  Happy to report that where we were (W side) most of the slush is frozen and not a problem. Traveled over a few pockets of watery slush, but they were small and easily managed.  Everything else is firm and crusted over. It’s minus 34 as I write this, so expect that any last remaining pockets of slush will be pretty firm  soon enough.

      14 inches of ice on the west end of Francis on Tuesday, but the access was heaved up so bad I don't think I could have pulled the wheel house out. Caught 1 sunny but only fished for about  half an hour. Mostly checking ice thickness. Checked the ice on Elysian, 12 inches near the south access and 10 inches further out.

      Also just 4 fun .     Tom , Fred Bear , Max Power , n Mrs W !   There you are back in the wild again , back where you belong ! Does Fred tell Max to go up on the ridge while he goes down into the swamp to get that pesky squirrel 🐿 , or something like that?   Glad they are real bro buds and enjoy there digs were they hang , and maybe some digs in the sand come time the spring decides to say “hello all”. Oh if we the people only had it so rough as those doggies you got there .🐶   As for Bobby Orr and needing longer legs 🏒 , your pic shows that your all legs , maybe just need to practice more , or shave , nothin personal whatsoever  , just sayin that old number 4 didn’t have a beard .   And last but not least ,  hope that those K-9’s didn’t get into those baked beans to heavily as burping may be the least of your issues !! Keep on rocken and rockin !    🎸  🎵  🎤  🎧  🎚️         A

      -23 degrees out in GR right now. Saying -25 tonight. This might harden things up a bit.🤔

      I bought a Striker snowmobile jacket and bibs at the Red Rock store up the Fernberg about 8 years ago. Really like them!
