On the east side of the first lake about straight across from the town beach,there is a huge area of open water.It starts out from the east side and runs out towards the west.
The cold temps.and calm conditions last night had no effect on freezing the gap up, in fact the area has become larger today with the wind gusting the way it has been.
Even after this area refreezes it will be dangerous for a while.
Anyway, keep your eyes open if you are traveling out on the lake.

Good Fishing and Be Safe!!

A car went into this hole on Saturday the 18th, even with this cold we are not seeing solid ice. Makes you wonder? Forest Lake and North Long by Brainerd -- Open water in late January?

Be safe out there!

Was on Forest on Sat.
The open water on Lake 1 is an impressive site. I would say about 1/5 of the lake is open.
Wierd things.

I don't think this area is going to freeze up at all the way it looks.You would have to think that there is warmer water releasing from the lake bottom somehow??
WEIRD IS RIGHT!

unclejake, the ice out of willow point is good. 2nd and 3rd lakes seem to be all good. There will a ton of people out though, lots of snowmobile traffic with the new snow this weekend.

      The landing at Stuntz Bay is private and for members only, and the docks are for landing and loading boats only.  No boats are allowed to be left at the docks, not even member boats.

      Based on some searches, there is a public access at Stuntz Bay.    From google maps it appears to be about 0.9  miles and 22 minutes to the mine.  Your mileage may vary.    This link might work...

      Was a few years ago, but wade fly fished upstream of 53 for a half day.  Tried every popper and minnow pattern fly in my box with no success.  Finally in the middle of the day switched to a larger brown bugger that looked like a crayfish and caught them till I got tired of it.  Unless things have changed, there’s a lot of bass in there.  Not a ton of size, but every now and then you’ll pop a nice one.

      This looks awesome, your kids are about the same age as mine.  I’m really excited to show them the north woods next week, hopefully a few fish cooperate too!

      By larger limit, I meant 6, not 4 walleyes. I count released fish as part of the limit, too. Nothing wrong with a 15” by any means, but we had larger fish we could keep.

      Yes, smallies thrive in the upper reaches of select areas of the St Louis. Lots of structure to get caught up in, but great small mouth habitat.

      I'm about to take my brother and niece over to experience the Soudan Mine tour this weekend. I've driven there before but he inquired about boating to the mine. With the new state park, is there a public boat dock anywhere nearby where one could hike a mile or so from the lake to the mine entrance? I don't make it to the east end too often so my knowledge of bays and landmarks is pretty limited.

      Isn't that the mantra for muskie fishermen?

      Went fishing on Basswood on Sunday. It rained all day but we had a good time thanks to Mike Stark and The Ely Fishing Guide Company.

      Never seen it myself but I looked at the satellite images and thought it looked worth a float.  The dam would probably tell you what you want to know.  Couple good gravel bars too.  Maybe the water is dark or it is mainly deeper - that I can’t tell.   I fished the Cloquet a little where 53 and 33 meet and found good action so I’m assuming the St. Louis would be similar in that area?
