I just picked up the Aviation Weather forecast and it looks at this time anyway, subject to change, that the biggest amounts of snow will be south of the LOW area. From Bemidji eastward and down through central Minnesota. They are forecasting 4-8" in the St Cloud area, and only 2-3" in Mpls. Sure glad I put a blade on my ATV last week, now I can sit back and just push. Bill

They are saying up to 8 inches for Brainerd. I hope they are wrong. I have spent more time shoveling my truck off the lake in the past two days than I care to admit.

Wildeskimo: I was off Wheelers Point over Pine right after Xmas and they had a lot of snow then. Adrians was doing a great job as always with the main ice road. Lots of wheel houses out there, coming and going. I would touch base with Adrians if you have any questions about the roads, as you also need to pick up the road pass from them. Can't help you with any of the other access points. Bill

It was slow compared to years past. Just didn't mark much on the vex. The fish that showed up were agressive, but it didn't appear to be the concentration of fish as in past years. It was still a good time though. The B/S was flying around the shack pretty good. Amazing how many jokes get told when you're passing time. I did put a report out Riverbend 26-28 if you're interested. Headed back a week from tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes. Bill

      Any updates as to the slush conditions on Vermilion, particularly off the staked trails?  
    • smurfy
      i keep hearing that this slush wont freeze up. i just cant fathom that with the low temps forecasted it wont?????????   anyone else with thoughts????

      Yeah I tried the wrench yesterday. I Can't get it to move with a load on it. With no load on the jack it does go up and down with the electric motor though. I ended up ordering a whole new jack since they're only $200. This one I'll take apart and try to fix it and keep it as a spare.

      Was out checking ice.....on west side....even though there is good ice closer to shore, when neighbor was trying to plow a road out farther, a lot of water was coming out of a crack. Please do not go out with a larger truck!!!!!

      I'm also thinking about going up this weekend. We were thinking about Barnacles or Red Door. It will be our first time out of either resorts. Any recommendation or opinions about the resorts and their roads? Thanks in advance!

      Thank you.. and thanks for the advise on the Duluth forum! I will look that up and subscribe.

      Thanks for your response! Sounds like fishing is pretty much the same on this end as Ontonagon. Aside from the rock reefs and possibility of snags on the bottom. I don't run lead core but have a pair of downriggers and some dipsies. I fish a lot on the surface with my Otter Boats with Rapalas and some spoons. I always run at least one dodger or flasher in the mix with a Howie's fly or a spin n glo behind it. Thanks again for your input! I appreciate it! Hopefully I can have a good weekend fishing!

      Glad your back Bryan! So far my season hasn't been one for the books but it haven’t been horrible. I’ve been waiting for your videos good to see your back man!
    • JohnnyM
      Thanks for the input!  I definitely don't want to snag one of my rigger weights! I have otter boats I run off a mast on both side of the boat. I run surface spoons and stick baits off the lines. Works well out of Ontonagon and sounds like it will work here also. I have a few dipsies also but do not have lead core on any of my set ups. I run a flasher or dodger on one of my lines also. Usually on one of my dipsies. I pretty much sounds like fishing off Ontonagon except for the snags on the bottom of the north shore. Thanks for your wisdom! I appreciate it!

      I drove by the lake this weekend and saw a large amount of vehicles and houses out there.  We are finding the crappies either out deep in the holes suspended or they are hugging weeds.  I know huge difference but don't be afraid to go shallow or deep.  I wasn't too far from Crystal fishing 6 feet of water Saturday fishing cabbage and getting a mixed bag of panfish, pike, and bass coming through.
