Ice

Checked out several lakes today and heard of a few anglers that actually ventured out on the ice. Stopped in at Delaney's and they said a couple went out but when they drilled holes the water flooded the ice. Too early for me yet!

The arms of Potato are iced, but the access is wide open, I'll be out there in the boat tomorrow morning.

Fishhook has ice around the edge, but the majority is open. Twin and Howe on the way to Detroit Lakes were frozen, but Toad was open. Lake George was half-frozen yesterday morning, but with the cold night it should be shut. Paine was enclosed. I hope everyone uses common sense when going out and makes sure they're safe-

I checked south twin (Menhaga) yesterday and there was 2 inches of ice about as far out as i wanted to venture. A couple of good cold nights and it'll be good to go smile.gif

JD- Thanks for the report.

From the weatherunderground site..."Rest of Tonight (11-26-07)

Areas of blowing snow in the evening. Mostly cloudy with light snow in the evening...then partly cloudy with chance of light snow after midnight. Partly cloudy early in the morning. New snow accumulation around 1 inch. Lows zero to 5 above. Northwest winds around 15 mph. Chance of snow 90 percent."

No ice is SAFE!

It's 5:30 a.m. and my thermometer says 8-below. SWEET! Those winds were howling last night as the cold front came in, but those small to medium sized lakes are close to ready.

I fished Potato last Saturday in the boat and water temps were 35-37.5.

NoDak, shouldn't you be changing your name to Ifalls? I envy you, Rainy Lake in your backyard!

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
