I just got off the phone with Adrains 20 minutes ago. Their road is still open, but they are not sure about the weekend. He recomended if he had a house out there that he would pull it in. He also said that he would not be pulling a wheel house out now or spending the night out on the ice. He said the road is really wet and slushly, also some potholes to go around. The weather has been warm the last 2 nights also, no freezing at night. He did say if the road makes it through the warm spell until it freezes again that people should be able to fish again. Cross your fingers since the weatherman is taling warm and rain for the next 2 days and 40's for the weekend.

JUST SUCKS!!!!!! The ice is crying!

Sucky news...

I've heard the Rainy River is a few weeks ahead of schedule in regards to its thaw and open water. Graceton and Morris Point will be the only ice access points to that side of the lake if the current weather keeps up.

Jerkbait: thanks for the update. Not what I wanted to hear as I have a reservation for 3/24. We had to pull the plug last year due to ice conditions and right after that it got colder than "H" and firmed back up. guess we'll have to wait and see what happens. It does mean I might get my dock and boat lift in early though LOL crazy

Just got off the road not even 20 minutes ago. There is about a foot of water off the access, then some dry spots and some spots with 8 in of water.

There are some pretty good pot holes, along with some cracks right across the road.

There is a heave that stretches along the road for quite a while and is getting bigger by the hour. 2ft it rose in 3 hrs. A heave also formed across the road about 4 miles from Pine. Also after crossing Pine Island it is a maze through the ice heave.

With this weather the conditions are changing rapidly, lots of people are moving their houses off.

bigslugger: thanks for the up to the minute data. this time of year things can change in a very short period of time. I would expect the resort with houses up on the reefs are going to be thinking seriously of started to drag them back.

Overall how was your fishing rsults?

Is this an instant replay of last year? Sure sounds famaliar.

The warm-up started a week early frown. Only saving grace might be that the snow banks and neck-downs on the road are not bad like last year.

Coming down to crunch time for me. I am wondering if I need to cancel my reservations and just tell gramps to stay home. He is putting in a 7hr drive vs my 4 hr drive. How far is morris point from Adrians? What do you guys think I should do?

Thanks

fishwater; you are correct it was a week later last year. my dates last year are the same is this years, we'll just have to hang in and see what happens.

badger: I would call the resort you plan on using and get 1st hand info from them. I can understand your concern with your grandfathers 7 hour drive. Hope it works out for you guys.

Starting to look to darn familiar to last year --JUST EARLIER-- right now bill moving off the reefs back to the shallow mud--bite has been better in the mud the last 2 weeks than the reefs anyway--just hate when we have to do these fast pulls--but the slush is taking a very high toll on the machines right now---the one bad thing about having a flat ice year is you have no idea where the next pressure ridge will apprear. For now want to get the houses back close to pine before a monster ridge show its ugly head on the reefs and we are on the wrong side of it with houses and equipment. Expecting a few buckles here and there when the sun finally pokes its head back out and sends the temps up this weekend. Say your prayers for a mild cold snap to firm things back up

Charterboss: Understand what you are saying. And I agree that the mud bite was better for us two weeks ago than the reefs. I'll touch base with Charlie next week and see what the plan is. Take Care.

Just got of the phone with Adrians and the road is still open on a day to day basis. They think it will be able to stay open through the weekend but there is a lot of sluch and some rough spots.

Some very rough spots at that. Make sure to keep your speed down unless you would like some costly repairs

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.
    • BrianF
      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
