I think we'll be in good shape despite the white junk come early next week thanks to the sub-zero temps starting tomorrow!

I think the snow will move the date for pulling out the house from before Christmas to mid January.

Because the size of the lake and the winds that come with the area most of the snow will get blown off the lake.

Only 3+ inches? We should be good by round about christmas especially with the cold air moving in........or so I hope.I'd like to spend new years on the ice down there.

More like a foot on the pond, and if it is wet and now froze it won't blow much. hard to predict how the ice will grow. I would think if the pattern holds shacks will be out by x-mas. Long range forecast says below zero every night almost till the 20th. hard to imagine that would not make over a foot of ice.

Just came in off the lake. We will be opening up for snowmobile and wheeler access to both Shaw's Reef and Doe Island Reef on Wednesday. We found 8 inches of ice everywhere in the bay and out to bout 1/4 mile past Does Island. At that point we had slush and 5 inches of ice. We have started to clear our landing in anticipation of staging houses soon. We will spend tomorrow staking trails and plowing out an area for a skating rink.

      Wife just showed me a facebook post by highbanks today. Urgent message at that. Seems another resort is trying to tie in to highbanks road system.

      Looks like the shanty town that sprung up around my house in central MN.  Just moved it off to a new, less populated spot and now have someone drilling by me.

      Good advice @Hookmaster.   I don’t think ever entered a channel on the lake in the winter.  I’ve always played it like you described.

      26 foot and it has 3 fishing holes.   😂🤣 Attached are a couple of pics of the bay where the access is. The larger part of the bay to north has way more houses than this.

      Found my problem, broken prong on the power connection but  Marcum won't sell me the part.  They say I need to send it in, can't bring it in because of Covid, so $99 plus shipping.  I found the part online for $4.50.  Thanks for the thoughts and comments.   HTB

      Not to dampen anyone's enthusiasm for fishing Minnetonka, but I have been fishing it since the late 60s. Even in normal winter's (whatever that is) there can be bad spots away from shore due to springs or schooling fish and the channels can be sketchy too. Many times there are pressure ridges at the mouths of the channel than one can break through. Just ask my dad, and he was walking. If you're set on Tonka I'd suggest picking an area of the lake with large bays so you wouldn't have to go through a channel or it would minimize the number of channels you went through. Now if someone has been out this winter and knows it's safe that's a different story or if you check the channels before you go through them. It's a fun lake to fish year 'round but especially in the winter. There are a lot of fish in it.

      Skunked- The areas of Black lakes seemed very similar to Black Bay. Flat 6 to 7 feet deep. I did have a friend years ago take his fish and ski into Black Lake. He said it was interesting getting in there. Do you ever see signs of winter kill in Black Bay? I thought I recalled something about one 7 or 8 years ago.    Good Luck - Enjoy every day    Steve
