Hopefully b-4 opener. Last year it was right about opening day, with lots of ice to the south, throught the weekend. If it warms up big time, my guess is April 30-May 1st.

We will be coming up the weekend after opener. I noticed at the resort I am staying at that they had several cancellations for opening weekend. Just wondering if they are afraid the ice won't be out for opener.

It will be off before opener for sure. This coming week we should lose a lot of ice. Last year the river on the southwest side was solid in early april. This year it is open a good 400 yds beyond the mouth. I'm guessing ice will be off before the week of the 27th.

is it possible we could still be out there pounding perch, it's just that every body is burnt out of ice fishing and is waiting for summer with open arms?

Who's burnt out, I would like to be up there ice fishing now, best time of the year, however work and other things come into play. Last year I believe April 10th was my last ice fishing day, and when I left I thought I would be ice fishing for opener.

Cmon Jiggle get that ice a shifting around.

Check out the Williams Narrows website. Joe has a web cam on the lake looks as though there is a couple hundred yards of open water on Cut Foot!!! Great sight to see.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?
    • Dash 1
      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.  
    • Kettle
      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
