Odd year.. open water was still just past loman as of noon today.. if you look at the satellite it looks like the whole river is open, but it’s just water on top of the ice and dark spots.. royal Dutchman says 14 inches of ice at vidas
Just read a Jeff sundin report he updated today. On winnie done resorts are only letting quests out, some are still allowing trucks but that's on a daily basis. Most if not all are strongly suggesting ATV.
Haven't seen anything about bowstring.
We’re heading up to Lutsen area for the first week of April and I was looking for fishing ideas with kids. Options I was considering: guided ice fishing if the ice is still decent, panfish on smaller lakes or walleye on Sag or shore fishing on superior. I go up steelhead fishing every spring but that’s typically early for upper shore- maybe casting around river mouths? I also haven’t done any shore fishing off break walls so I wouldn’t know where to start- if that time of year is worth it or would hold kids attention, depths to try, etc. They do love climbing around rocks and beaches on shore and exploring. Any ideas (even stuff I haven’t thought of) or advice would be most welcome! Thanks in advance.
