Temps of 40 today combined with high winds yesterday would add up to unsafe ice would be my guess. Everyone should be careful. Any reports on ice conditions? I had thought about going out to Foster Arends this weekend but I sure am skitish with the warming.

Good post Carl.

There's some serious melting out there again today.

Winter will return, but it looks like it won't be until around the 11th of February, then get ready for a heavy dose of cold air.

Be safe out there....

I hit the Zumbro for a little bit today. I was out by Postiers Point closer to the main channel. There were about 5 or 6 shacks sittin out there so I figured would give her a shot. Right now I personally wouldn't recommend being out on the ice I drilled in about 5" and there were alot of open spots where I was.

Hi guys,

Got out on the mighty Zumbro for a couple of hours today. Kept a nice meal of panfish. Drove my Atv out. YIKES! No ice condition changes faster than this body of water around here. Just a couple of days ago I questioned the sanity of a couple guys who drove there full sized trucks out by me. Be CAREFUL! They would be at the bottom of the lake today! The ice is quickly melting away from both sides at the same time. I would say I had 6 inches where I was fishing. I've had a couple real close calls out there before, therefore I vowed to never drive a vehicle out there again. This is a strange year guys. Lets not have any accidents.

At this rate the Zumbro Zinger is going to turn into an open water event.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
