We found Bowstring very tough going on 1-29- 13 after the new snow. The heave by the West access raised another 2'-3'. One guy was stuck on it and we pulled him off it. The resort right next to it let us on for 5.00 each. Spent a lot of time stuck and one snowmobile overheated. Had to go get more antifreeze. 2 pickups stuck a lot . Caught 12 crappies for 5 guys and went back to the cabin. 10-12 " of new snow. don't know about any but the West side. Use a buddy system if you go. Sand wasn't much any better. Very slow for perch and walleyes. Any then new snow. Stan C.

How much ice did you have up there? Just curious for our annual March trip with all the new snow.

There is over a foot of new snow in the last week. The 11" of snow from 28 January has been wind driven and is hard & drifted. Last weekend we had a hard time traveling with a 1 ton superduty with really aggressive tires. Last nights snow and the forecast snow should make it "snowmobiles only" until it starts to thaw.

20" of good clear ice. Late ice should be much better this year and hopefully last longer. I imagine there will be some slush between now and then. Stan C.

No plowed roads that we saw on the West side. Bowstring Shores resort some years has a small(short) road out of their place, NE. Stan C.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
