I can't tell you much about the lake, but we are predicted to get another foot of snow this weekend.

the last couple mornings when coming past there on the way to the lake, I could see areas that had steam coming up.

looked to me not to be open water really, but maybe more like cracks that flooded what little ice is out there.

in my opinion and seeing what the other area lakes are like, Deer would be on the list of my lakes not to mess with this winter.

I agree Dave. I looked at it the other night when going out to my old buddy Ritter's house on Moose and Deer looked slushy!!! Knowing how Deer is, I want to fish it in the worst way this winter, but it ain't gonna happen...far toooooo dangerous!!! By the way, one of the guy's fishing out of Ritter's house hooked a piggy pout, I never knew they were in Moose! Might have to do some exploring in March!

Looks like I'll be donning the snowshoes and hitting the trout lakes from here on out, at least till the March meltdown....if we get one!

I flew over deer today and there was a snowmobile track that had slush in it all the way across the lake. Tell you the truth it barely froze over before we got the snow. But I did see 2 houses on the south shore close to shore.

      On the main basin... Ice is making progress and now covers Lake of the Woods. Satellite images from 11-17-18 show the majority of the lake locked up with various pockets of open water. A very welcomed sign, but way too early to be on the main lake. Some spearing for pike taking place on Bostic Bay. Spearers are often the first on the ice. Please use resort marked trails and exercise safety precautions as ice thickness is varied. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River and Four Mile Bay is frozen over with various pockets of open water. Currently, higher than normal current. Areas of the river locked up earlier in the week. Up at the NW Angle... The NW Angle is locked with ice. Higher than normal current. As always, neck down and other areas with current are iffy. Mainly airboat traffic between islands thus far. Work through resorts and stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins. Safety first. We are getting closer!

      We hunt 108 and are overrun by wolves. You can count the number of deer tracks up there. Same thing to the west of us. Once they deplete the deer enough they either starve or move on. Problem is if they have a neighboring pack the fight is on and they have nowhere to go. So we go through these endless cycles between having deer or having wolves. Biologists have determined a wolf can eat 25 deer a year!
