Any guess when the ice comes off?

At some point this pattern has to change.  I am still hoping for the last weekend of April to put the dock in but it's looking more like the weekend before opener.  In 25 years we've never had to wait till the weekend before.

Some of the lakes are just starting to be ice free from the shore, I haven't heard of any lakes that are completely open.  But my guess is for sure by next weekend most should be ice free.

Looking at the DNR website they show 8 lakes in MN that are open.  Not sure how often they update it.

Yesterday when I looked at that website there were only 3. This morning, only 3. So maybe once a day.

I don't know of any in Kandiyohi county that are totally ice free yet.  Willmar lake should be ice out today or tomorrow.

A lot of lakes opened up yesterday with the wind.  I know Big Kandi is open and Wakanda, Point had ice yet Saturday morning but was looking really close, Eagle had open water out about 50-60 yards from shore.

      No ice in Stuntz Bay yet but I did lift the boat out of the water onto the boathouse deck.  Easy to drop it back in if the water is soft after I get my deer.

      I took a trip this August to Buffalo River State Park to wade in the river while hitting the holes. My brother and I caught a variety of fish from red horse and chubs to a clam. All fish were caught on worm chunks. This spring/summer I want to use my new 5wt fly road and see what I catch

      Let’s get them 22-27 inch fish out of the lake

      I think anybody can see that the food/forage base is or has declined in Mille lacs.......having a lot of large fish doesn't help it at all. I think they should thin the herd.

      Well was a sad day today indeed. Got the kayak all vacuumed out and cleaned up. Then hung it in it’s winter spot in the shed. Trailer got a cleaning to. But until next year so long open water. Time to finish putting the open water gear away and finish getting the ice gear out.

      10/21/18     I have hunted in the Hutchinson area the last two weekends with my Dad, son, and some friends. Dakota ducks are trickling through central MN as the calendar migration has begun. With strong NW blows before or during the past two weekends, we have harvested mallards, gadwalls, redheads, bluebills, canvasbacks, and ringnecks, as well as a couple of geese hunting from a boat blind on some shallow lakes. This calendar migration should continue over the next couple weeks whenever we can get a strong NW or West wind. It will take some more cold and frozen water in Canada to get the big Canadian birds to come down--hopefully that happens before Thanksgiving. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Snow?  Yeah I finally ran into some today.     And I HAD to get them on the tailgate! 😅   And that is one of the reasons to leave that stuff in MN for a little while.  😎

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Not hunting the wet birds this year sorry.  So you mistook my lil funny to Wanderer?  I think he knows I was just pulling his chain.   😉  Good Luck.
