That's probably because he uses an older 2007 version of LakeMaster which doesn't have the updated name.

Ice and road conditions- 1/010/2012

Looks like we will have a full house of FM'ers

We currently have 14 inches of ice in the bay and out past 2 Mile. We are seeing some cracking and spidering of the ice sheet due to temperature fluctuations and the lack of any snow cover. We are still only allowing 4 wheelers and snowmobiles out but we hope to be open to light vehicle traffic by the weekend. All of our rentals are out and we have started to pull private houses out.

We currently are staked out to Shaw's Reef and also out to 2 Mile. We will complete staking Doe Island Reef tomorrow afternoon.

Ice conditions are changing daily so please check in and get up to date information wherever you are accessing the lake.

I'm thinking about making a trip for sunday-monday. Maybe with these low temps coming we can get small vehicles out there.

I'll be keeping an eye on the reports!

Forewheeler is hooked up. I'll be there early friday morning.

I'm staying with Jordon R. 8h delux and 4h 4bed. Will you charge me parking friday morning? If so, no problem, whats the earliest i can show up at appledorns to pay for parking, and do you charge parking over the weekend if your staying in a house? I was going to call thursday night and ask these questions, but maybe we can take care of it here. Black Bravada, trailer in tow.

Thanks,

Andy

PB, I'll probably be pushing out of there by 10am sunday... i think that is when we have to leave the house. I'll need a nice nap sunday afternoon i'm sure, but if the bite is hot it might change my mind. I'm going up friday to get some good fishing before the group shows up, since we've got a group of 10 guys going (all younger than 30yrs old grin ) - there will be more beer drinking than fishing goin on i think and it will require some recovery time! sleep

Now if you were coming up friday...

Cabin 13, I'll keep that in mind. We'll be in 19 and some others in 4. I think there's 3 more coming up in a custom camper too.

Probably be heading back home by 10am or before on Sunday.

Think we are in house 11 if I am not mistaken.

It will be a 40 something(me) and my son in law and his friend, both in their 20's.

Actually going to try to fish most of the weekend, there will be a few beers being tipped back I am sure too.

Hopefully Adam and I will be there by noon. His friend will be up later.

Hopefully the house 13 isn't too close to ours... crazy

O come on rippinlip. We aren't gonna get loud and out of control. Most of us are after the fish rather than the buzz.

No thats cool, I just want to have fun this weekend, but going to try to fish some too.

I was even thinking off bringing up a golf club or 2 and seeing if I could drive a ball a couple of miles....lol

Maybe a putting tournament on the ice....

Catch a fish, a buzz and have some fun.......sounds like a plan to me.

Don't fret I will have a few very cold Northern Beers somewhere around wink

There is know way we are going to let the banana out. With the lack of snow cover that yellow glob will be absolutely blinding. laugh

As things currently stand we should be open to vehicle traffic this weekend.

I'll be in the 22h "premiere" house this weekend with nine others. Not planning on catching ANY fish, so anything more than that is a bonus! Under-promise and over-deliver!

      It's called Cutaneous fibroma.    
    • walleyemaster08
      Has anyone been out lately? Just curious how the fishing has been and how much ice is out there? I’ve been out a couple times so far on a smaller lake near by vermilion. I had 5 to 7 inches consistently everywhere I checked. 
    • Rick
      I've used both and haven't seen a significant advantage for either. So for ice fishing with plastics it's usually not scented.   Just trying to hold the rod still in your hand can give the plastic enough realism/movement to cause a curious fish to inhale it.
    • eyeguy 54
      Thanks for letting us know that.  Lol good ole joke

      Stop out the store from November 29 - December 1 for our Annual Truckload Sale!  Great deals on everything in the store and there will be industry reps and Pros on-hand to answer questions and join in on the fun with everyone!   For more info please visit our event page.... Truckload Sale Info - CLICK HERE   Looking forward to chatting with fellow FM/HSO members and stocking up for another ice season and Christmas!!   Thanks for all of the support!!

      On the south end...  The big lake is ice covered with scattered areas of open water.  We have a nice start to making ice so when colder weather hits, things will get locked up fairly quickly.  Mother Nature gave us a cold blast to get things started but with milder temps this week, things are on hold.  There is some spearing taking place for pike this week on back bays such as Bostic Bay and Zippel Bay.  Resorts have spear houses available.  Regardless of where you fish, work through a resort for safety. On the Rainy River...   Most areas of the river are covered with a thin layer of ice with some areas of open water.  There is no traffic on the river at this time while ice is forming.  Extra caution is always needed with current and this year the current is stronger than most years.  Back bays of the river are also iced up. Up at the NW Angle...  Ice is forming nicely throughout the Angle.  Locals have been out monitoring ice conditions and progress is being made, but no ice travel is recommended yet.  NW Angle resorts will communicate when ice fishing begins.

      You guys...  🙄 This is like the old joke: Ole went down to the public swmming beach at the local fishing hole.  He hoped to impress Lena and all her fine lady friends by wearing his tight swim trunks that showed off his "manliness."   Lars politely warned Ole that he didn't exactly have much to show off; Lars recommended perhaps Ole should tuck a potato into his Speedo.  Ole did.  After strutting around, he was extremely disappointed:  Lena and her lady-friends only point and laugh/giggle/snort and roll their eyes... Ole asked Lars, "what's the deal?"  Lars told Ole, "next time, try tucking the potato in the front."   Sorry to break it to you fellas, but a deer's anatomy isn't like ours.  The ladies keep their mammaries in a different location, ya understand...

      Odd, because on another thread subject you said this? 😏   What Kind Of Bird Is This??? Clavilux replied to Dan85's topic in MN Pheasant Hunting-Grouse-Dove-Partridge Tough to figure out what exactly it is. Looking forward to see the opinions of others.  
    • Clavilux
      I am not so familiar with looking forward to see the opinions of others.
    • CigarGuy
      Does scented make a difference? How about some different ones for walleyes?
