weather pays my bills and is a hobby. Accuweather as with almost all long range forecasts base their forecasts off a model called the GFS. It's funded by our taxes. It has serious faults, especially in the long range, but this time it does see what met's see outside of the modles. I doubt it will be as cold as you have posted, but highs in the low 30's and low's in the lower teens would not be uncommon. IF any snow does fall and stick-- knock a few degress off those temps. Nov does look to be a cold month, agst the normals.

It was 65 here today, I think ice fishing is still a little further off.

Sheesh! I'm as excited for ice fishing as the next guy, but I sure could enjoy some more of this nice fall weather we have been having the past week! Man, we have had so many cloudy days and rain since September 1st that I thought we would never see the sun! Seems like fall just got here! My boat still has a full tank of gas and I still have minnows on hand that are just begging to be dangled in front of a Walleye's nose next week!

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
