Thanks for the heads up.  It is greatly appreciated. 

Rule #1   Never drive where you have not personally drilled holes and checked the ice.

Rule #2  Stay away from Islands, Points and Shallow water

Rule #3 NEVER! EVER! Baja X Country

Rule #4 Always error on the side of caution

Kandiyohi? Not sure as I'm not too familiar with the lakes in that area.

That area was open water all last winter.   Bad, bad spot to try to drive through.

Big Kandi  Its very bad area, big rock spine with some springs always stays open to very thin ice and vehicles go through there every year.  It can be very confuseing so stay way back if getting close to island it actually extends farther than pic shows . Ice last year was 8 inches 30 yards from the open water and 20 inches 75 yards away big varience.

      Mitch Bradshaw Outdoors   Yesterday was our first day out with Ballards Resort. We got out about 12 miles It started really slow for everyone until Mr. Walleye upgraded his fish (21.5") from the day before with a beauty 25.75" suspended Walleye.   The bite started to pick up and in about 30 mins I caught my personal best Eelpout and Walleye (28.5"). One more day to fish up here and to see who goes home with the Manley Cup and the coveted 2020 Mr. Walleye title.

      Anglers are finding fishing to be inconsistent with the bite varying greatly. Snowmobile, ski and snowshoe trails are all in excellent shape! Even before the snow we received last night the snowmobile trails were in great shape. With more snow forecast tonight and this weekend it should only get better! In Voyageurs National Park most snowmobile trails are open and staked. We have been getting numerous riders coming through saying the trails are fantastic! The few that have gone on the Chain of Lakes trail and up to Kettle Falls reported awesome riding conditions. Throughout the area there are still lots of slushy areas with more wet spots showing up. For the most part, the snow has firmed up nicely which is keeping riders from having issues with these areas, but the park service still advises caution when traveling off the trail. All trails beyond the park are groomed and in excellent shape with groomers are out daily. The ice road has not been plowed and all indications are that it won’t happen this week. All ski trails are packed and tracked with the exception of the Kab/Ash trail. All snowshoe trails are open. Fishing has been extremely inconsistent. It’s been frustrating for anglers as they are marking fish but just not biting. Reports are all over the map. When the fish are active it’s been in depths from 18-35 ft. Edges of reefs and shoreline points as well as deeper water over soft bottom are seeing some activity. Bigger walleyes still seem to be the majority of fish caught with a few smaller ones as well as the occasional perch and northern pike mixed in. Many anglers are reporting water coming up and flooding areas around their house after drilling holes. With the snow we just received and more on the way it’s going to get interesting. Lake travel is not advised with the exception of snowmobiles and track machines. Fortunately, here in Voyageurs National Park fishing isn’t the only thing to do! There are plenty of activities to keep you busy. Check out the Voyageurs National Park as well as the Kabetogama Lake Association’s website and Facebook pages for area updates and activities. You can also call or stop in at Gateway as we have snowmobile trail and lake maps to help point you in the right direction! As always, be safe, enjoy yourself and we’ll see you soon! Gateway
