I knew it would happen. Highs above freezing on Friday and Saturday, with windy conditions. Makes you wonder the thought process of this guy.

Despite getting down to 11 degrees last night, clear and forest lakes had more open water this morning than on Friday. Need the wind to disappear.

Heard a rumor that someone went through the ice on Skogman.  Anyone know for sure?

Clear and Forest Lakes still had some open spots scattered around this morning. I’m sure the smaller, shallow lakes are locked up and making better ice, but I’ve officially decided not to go out this weekend. With the snow covering up potential bad spots, plus above freezing temps, I will happily wait another day.

They're talking mid 40's all week and potential rain on Wed night.  Lets be smart about this people.  Winter will be here until March.

Yes this is correct. Wednesday is looking nasty for the ice. Around the first of dec temps start to fall again but not a whole lot. The ice May start to weaken and not be so great😬

Took a drive up to Leech yesterday evening.  Saw people out on about a half dozen lakes along 371.  Hole in the Day bay on Gull was wide open though.

 

Conditions obviously varied so don’t make any sure plans just yet.  It’s still a small/shallow lake game.

Lake one of forest is probably about half open now. Lots of other open spots throughout lake also. Looked like every swan in the area was hanging out on the north end of peltier lake.

I drove pat Big Lake on Monday afternoon and virtually the entire lake was ice-free.  There was about 800 geese and a couple hundred mallards sitting out there.

We’re still looking ok here in central MN. Lakes are still locked up. Only thing that opened back up is the Mississippi earlier this week. The ice on most lakes is honey combed on top but about half way down it firms up and is fine. Still 4-6” most places. Can tell the ice is definitely not as strong as it was last weekend with the warm Temps this past week. Jump up and down on the ice and the water is moving in the hole some, didn’t do that last weekend. Gonna skip this weekend but can hopefully get back out next weekend. Sounding like most south of here are either very little ice if any and if there is some it’s not close to safe.

Forest Lake finally froze over. Nice smooth sheet. Swans and geese still had a spot or two they’re keeping open.

      Checked three different weather sites on line. One said 1" and the other two said 1"-3" Hope it's what I found.
    • Borch
      Sounds like we're for another 6-10" based on the weather report. 
    • popriveter
      Thanks for the info. I am surprised at how different the ice is on different lakes right now. Looks like it will stay sketchy through this weekend, but a good deep freeze next week should even it out a lot. The forecast calls for negative temps M-W.

      Well done Bryan!

      Only one sack lunch?  tsk tsk...  I would challenge you to improve that! Frankly, my deershack looks like a buffet by the time I'm done--This year I had one thermos with soup, one with hot tea, 2 sodas, sandwich, apples, smoked whitefish, gobstoppers, crackers, sausage and baked pumpkin seeds (from the kids jack-o-lanterns).   (I think the deer that I get are probably wandering in, just wondering what smells so good!  😂  Conservation officer can't get me for "feeding" deer 'cuz the food I pile up is all in my stand...)   Part of the reason the kids like to sit in the stand with me is to eat dad's goodies!😁 Speaking of junkyard, there's a "stand" leading up to where I hunt that the dude put the front of a old dump truck cab on stilts.  Classy!  I seriously would've loved to see Red Green do an episode based on your idea!

      Donkeyhodey - I've always thought of going to a junk yard, grabbing a vehicle seat that is heated. put that in my nice stand and hook it up to a deep cycle battery. After a few hours, turn it on and relax on a heated swiveling reclining deer stand seat with arm rests. I'd probably wake up at 8 PM wondering what darn day it was.  Bigfatbert, -  that is my plan moving forward. Blinds in the sky. my only concern is their durability over time with inclement weather. How do you prepare for a early season heavy snow or high wind?

      It's LED, no heat coming off of them. 
    • leech~~
      Simple. 😉

      Does it get hot?  Just curious if it would cause any problems if it was touching the shell of a portable.    I have the Clam hub light and like it, but it's pricey for a light, and I'm always worried the cord will get ripped out of it.
