Hey, I hope that no body asks if we will be driving on mille lacs soon or if it is froze over yet, come on common sense people it has been above what temp for how long, then throw in the wind, and look how big that lake is. Hopefully it will cool off like they say!?!?! However I did go out on cove bay today from 2pm to 9 pm. Pulled up some perch, but noth'n to talk about. Only went out about 150yds had a good 5+ inches of ice drilled a hole out for a tip-up about 200yds out and there was 4+ inches. There was smooth ice out to that point and there was a ton on backed up rough chunks of ice past that. Anyone know how any on the other smaller bays or area lakes are looking?

I hear ya Grabs....or at least I'd like to hear the same thing. Perfectly calm and around 20 degrees. Hopefully it gets colder by the morning. I also hear ya Trout, but if tomorrow doesn't get too windy, tomorrow night can start building some ice below what is forming tonight. Good to hear you made it on and off the ice safely. Small lakes should be able to freeze over completely tonight. Hopefully they do......

Just got back from there. It had a nice skim of ice over most of the lake. I really hpoe that the wind we have today will blow all the ice off. With the snow we are going to get it would make terrible ice conditions for the year. Blow wind blow!

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.

      Cliff and Byron are planning a Kids ice fishing day February 12. The event is out of Fortune bay Marina  9-1. The event is for Tower and Nett lake kids. I know Cliff is looking for a few helpers.

      Cuz that’s just me.  🙂  I just like tinkering and seeing what I can get away with - and learn about things.   Just got done with a fine hone stone and got out some small nicks I’m pretty sure I got from cutting dirty ice in ND.  I’ll find out tomorrow how I did.

      Like @eyeguy 54 says, Frank has been the go-to guy for members of this site for years.  He does it by mail and is in Saginaw, MN.   It’s interesting that you ask about re-shaping also.  I know Frank has the Nils jig and the drill blades are curved.  I was considering tuning up my own today before they get too dull but am concerned about maintaining the shape of the curve. Since I was a machinist in a former life, I’m still gonna try it.  Then maybe send to Frank. 😀
