Happy belated B-day, Ed. I wish I could have been there to celebrate it with you- but duty called. Sounds like you guys had a good time. Hopefully next year I'll be able to join you.
As I remember the "fall run" for 'eyes last year, I recall a whole lot of nothing happening around the dams for basically all of the fall. I believe you said that was due to the incredibly low water at the end of Sep. and Oct. I'd imagine the low water isn't an issue this year like it was last. So... what's your best guess for when things will start to heat up around the dams?

Also, have you had much luck targeting 'eyes staging a mile or two below the dams in the fall, just before they run up to the dams? I can think of a couple of prime spots below a few dams in the general area that should hold fish before they move up. However, maybe they don't stage up below the dams like I'm thinking they might.

Anytime in the near future look good for hitting the water together? I'll even take you to the east to fish a lake if you'd like a break from the Mighty Red.

      Well its Friday and the forecast looks fantastic for a weekend of hole hopping. Me and the 96' Pantera are heading up North of Duluth in search of walleyes. Where is everyone heading, what's the target, and how much ice are you seeing?

      Bill , Theresa spent one night in Montana, They managed tow get 2 walleyes under 17. 1 around 20 inches , They also landed a 36 inch pike. So all in all Not to good.  The fishing has been way better out deeper , but with this warm up and my houses weighing 5 to 7 thousands pounds.  I need to use common sense and stay on this side of the pressure ridge for now.   When the weather warms  the ice expands , the weakest link is the pressure ridges and can become quite active. Its just getting light, but from what I have heard through the grape vine  the lake was gowning and popping last night with a couple new breaks so if your coming up please check at the resort you plan on accessing.  There crews are out there everyday and know more about what"s going on with bridges ,cracks and areas that should be avoided.  Right now the temps are just to mild to make much if any ice. I was surprised to measured 13 1/4 where I have old Minnesota. I imagine  there's a bit more snow closer to shore so were seeing a inch or more further out where's there's less snow.   We have guest coming  today  with a few not coming tell tomorrow.

      Bump! I assume it's safe for walking but are there any spots to avoid for foot traffic? Have the week of Xmas off and would like to try this lake.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.
