Hard to see them in summer, at least for me since it doesn't get dark enough until after my bedtime 🌙

Some consider the Stuntz Bay boathouses hideous.  I've owned one for 40 years and love that area.  I've seen many people cruising the bay looking at them.  There is a lot of history to them and are ve

I have been doing some night photography/astrophotography.   This lake is a wonderful place to watch the night sky.   Here is a photo from the Aurora show last labor day weekend and another of co

This past week, we had two different sightings of golden eagles while fishing on the west end.  They must have had a 7’ wingspan.  Huge raptors!  At one point, the golden soared into bald Eagle territory and a mid-air confrontation ensued.  The bald eagle was so much smaller and more maneuverable that it was no contest.  

We also watched a bald eagle swoop down to grab a fish early in the morning.  The fish was too big to pluck from the water so the eagle crashed down and started a long 300 yard swim to shore.  Took about 15 mins of breast strokes, but it made landfall and proceeded to drag her catch up on shore - where two other eagles immediately flew in to squabble over the meal.  Eagles swimming in with their catch must be a thing.  Seen it three times now.

      I'm in Black Bay, which in a typical year is no more than 6 feet deep (5ft this year!) so it's one of the first places to freeze along with all of the other shallow bays. My rule of thumb has always been to plan on trips through the end of October, open water in November is a pleasant gift. This year is obviously a little different at the moment.   I am hoping for that warm up....maybe I should just sit tight for a week and not push trying to get up there this weekend.

      I couldn't find ice-in data on Lake Vermilion  but mid-November is typical.  Usually occurs during firearms deer hunting but has occurred at the beginning and end of November.  May occasionally deviate outside of November.  Would be interesting to see the data.

      Our group has been going up early to mid October for years but have also done September. You will likely catch more fish in October but weather is hit or miss. Example is this year...we were up this past weekend and it was miserable. Snowed every day and highs in mid 30s. Last year we were up the same weekend and fished in sweatshirts. That’s the gamble you have to take with October. We just don’t have the choice for now.    Edit: FWIW I’ve had plenty of bad/windy days in September too. But the bad in October are worse.

      As far as I can see west of Duffy Island towards the Houseboats in Pike Bay it skimmed over with ice last night. Not saying it's going to stay. Just saying it has ice.

      Long range forecast has 50 degrees by deer opener.  I highly doubt winter is already here to stay.
