WLS,

Kelly P. is correct but if you look at his post from the day before by looking at other similar posts that were already started nad Kelly P. gave the info you inquired about already (e.g. "Currious of the ice thickness when the access closed").

By the way Kelly P. do we still need an extension to get through the river? Not looking for a smarta$$ response either blush.gif) Take care!

WLS, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

Don't hesitate to put any questions you have up, they will get answered one way or another... wink.gif

You are correct, pretty much all of the ice around Bemidji is gone, but Lake Bemidji still has a good sheet on it, which is probably the closest sized lake we have in the area.

That said, URL still has a bit to go. It shouldn't be long, be patient! We're all a bit giddy!

I missed what was edited but I did not mean to come off as a smart$$. Many times there is a 10 degree tempature difference from Bemidji to Waskish. Also the lakes around Bemidji are all far smaller then URL so they will have ice out far sooner. URL's ice sheet is big. It cools the entire area down. A breeze off URL right now can be felt 2 to 3 miles away this time of year. Comparing lakes in the Bemidji area to URL is like comparing apples to oranges.

Came back from Morson yesterday around 2:00 PM. The ice on Red was going out fast. it appeared to be about 50% out. Should be clear now. No fishing allowed in the Tamarac untill May 13th.

We had had a fairly strong southeasterly wind for 2 days pushing the ice sheet out about 1 mile from the eastern shore. It did not pile on the north shore so the ice sheet must be fairly solid yet. The ice sheet can still be seen with the naked eye today so it does not appear that it is breaking up out there in todays wind. It is not "about 50% out". Unless todays warm temps change things fast a NW wind will bring the ice sheet back.

      That does look good, hard to beat the price and convenience. I looked into these a couple years ago but ended up finding a fairly local guy who does great work for good prices. He's doing my second Euro now

      Yeah, I just tell myself, I only have these few years to really enjoy the kids things.  It will fly by I am sure, then I will miss it.   Over the First 3 weekends of Muzzy season Isaac has 12 games, Friday thru Sunday.  Time would be thin.   Muzzy season has always been a hit and miss season for me.  Usually dont need any more meat, and no really established properties to hunt.  Public is the usual.

      I found 4" along the shore of a small shallow lake...so tempting!  Anyone else finding anything fishable?

      How about a digital photo frame in the shack.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...
