Check out the Accuweather metro forecast prediction for next week. If this is true, we will be making ice for sure. So much to do, so little time... cool.gif

I hope the forecast you found is correct cause the 10 day forecast I found on weather.com doesn't look as good. frown.gif

Come on man, everyone knows that a 15 day forecast is far more accurate than a 10 day.... wink.gif

I would rather have the colder weather for sure but it just shows how much different the forcasts can be.

Now, Carp, you really don't believe that forecast, do you? I mean, the weatherman can't even get it right three days in advance no less a week or two. Did you consult Al Gore to get a balanced view?? Mike and I are still pounding the backwater pannies and the average temps don't hit freezing until the end of November. You'll have to join us some Saturday. Winter will be here soon enough.

Ok perhaps I'm being abit optimistic. I've never been ice fishing until after Dec 1st. I thought about consulting Algore for a more balanced view, but I decided that it would just burn too much carbon to try to send him a message of any kind. Besides its common knowledge that we will be ocean fishing here in Minnesota in about 10 years due to the Hummer driving, Republican loving induced rise of ocean levels. But thats only if we survive the Mother Earth plagues of the locusts, frogs, etc..

      Questions. Would you like something on a motor route. Stick to or fish smaller lakes. Travel distance. How many days.

      If you have an aluminum boat and open access to bottom of the hull, you can just set the transducer in a little puddle of water inside the boat.  The signal of a working unit will read just fine through the hull.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?! 
    • leech~~
      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.
