It better get real cold, real quick in order for things to start locking up around here. From what I have experienced so far the smaller ponds are not even holding ice all day. As soon as 10-11:00 am hits...bam ice is gone. You never know though. It wasn't too long after thanksgiving last year that we were fishing so.........

Down Deep

I've been out in the woods around Duluth almost daily for the past two weeks. Last week the trails were frozen solid and the swamps were frozen hard enough for the dog to walk on. Now as of Monday 11/12 everthing is a soggy and the water is open. Temp is near 50 today.

Pulled the boat up the trail Sat and Sunday. There were a few lakes off the grade that were partially or completely froze saturday but things warmed up yesterday and I don't think it'll stick around. There are some swamps and ponds may stay iced up but I got a a wet foot testing a small, shallow pond out, wishful thinking. The fishing was slow and I prolly shoulda cool.gif went deer hunting. I'm hoping to be on the ice by thanksgiving but it'll take a good cold snap. Come onnnn coldsnap!

Surface Tension

Thanks for the ice reports.

Lakes just North of Duluth are cooled down and just need a calm night and temps a hair colder.

Thanks for all the reports. May not make it up this weekend ( too much family stuff going on frown.gif ), but hopefully in the next week or so. Sounds like that may be the only place to be for the next 3 weeks or so. No sign of real cold weather down this way anytime soon frown.gifconfused.gif .

The little lake in Chisholm is starting to get some ice around the edges but with this wind it just keeps busting up.

A friend walked out Devil track on thanksgiving and I saw someone had been skating on elbow. Also heard of someone fishing cascade(w/ no luck) and someone else walking out on a bay on greenwood. I think many of the smaller lakes have 2-4 inches and I'm going ice fishing tomorrow so i hope to have an ice report as well as fresh fish dinner.

      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.
