Not much, probably none by now. There was ice out 150 yards on Minnewawa in front of my cabin on deer opener but most if not all was gone by Tuesday morning.

I was staying on Rat Lake last weekend for deer hunting. The lake was pretty much frozen over on Saturday but by the time we left on Sunday, Most of the lake had re-opened. Same goes for the Big Sandy flowage.

Swamp lake south of Aitkin is froze over as of sat. There was about an inch of ice. Hopefully the weather forecast will stay the same for next week, that will freeze all the lakes up and should be walkable by the first weekend of Dec. It says the highs will be mid 20's with lows almost in the single digits.

just got back from Emily area today- there are a lot of frozen over lakes in that area, I'm sure some of them should be ready to walk on by Dec. 1st. I even heard of one guy going out on one of the smaller lakes already.

I will be on fleming next weekend for sure. I hope we get a little snow on the ice first, I just don't like or ever had good luck at ice fishing with no snow. we need the snow for movement, to cover ourselves like camo, especially on shallow lakes.

its a good thing I have to work throughout this weekend, becuase I don't want to go out on marginal ice anymore. be careful brothers this weekend.

Knoppers: Think we will have typical Fleming Lake crappies this year or do you think that with the "die off" they will be a little bigger? Just thought you might have some insight on that being it seems like you fish it a lot.

fished fleming on friday, 6.5-8 inches of ice, used the wheeler. nothing but perch, did not even see a crappie on the camera. only thing was many perch, one sunnie, and one small northern. maybe the crappies are getting hit hard, with the die off and the fishing pressure.

This warm weather isnt ruining the ice too much up here is it? I'd hate to have my break wasted with unsafe ice!

Was out on Clear and Dam this week. Had a good 8" yet yesterdy. Sunny and 40 today, but I think it will be fine for ATV and foot traffic. There were some smaller day houses being pulled off, but I think they were concerned with them freezing back in when it gets cold again. ( I hope )

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!
    • jigginjim
      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
