Glad to hear that construction is starting, thanks for the updates!
Would be cool to get a periodic picture or two of the construction over time for those who happen to swing through Cook and stop by. Appreciate the info.
Ice on the majority of lakes on the Iron Rage excluding big water and the mine pits. I did see someone out today in a hub shelter on a smaller lake. I'm shooting for a Red Lake trip Sunday if not I'll be fishing smaller waters around Grand Rapids
On the south end... Most open water anglers put away the boats and are looking forward to ice fishing. Ice forming on back bays and on different parts of the big lake. With the cold snap, things are coming along nicely. When the time is right, resorts will communicate when initial ice accesses will be available. That time is not yet, but it won't be too long!
On the Rainy River... A few anglers out braving the elements with good success, but for the most part, anglers have boats put away for the year. Some anglers fished last week with decent success and some big walleyes. With increased current this fall, river ice will be suspect. Back bays iced up.
Up at the NW Angle... Ice is forming throughout the Angle. Some reports around the inlet of 3 inches of ice, but no ice travel is recommended. Most bays and some areas throughout islands iced up. NW Angle resorts will communicate when ice fishing begins.
