What's the latest up there in God's country? Anybody see hard water on the big lake or big river?

There was lots of ice to be found on Saturday morning.

Then we smashed through it, went across the river from Riverbend resort and fished the airport flag. About 2 hours later all the ice was gone. Fishing was o.k. Brutally cold wind chills. Thank God for the bimini top and sunflower heater.

Buckshot rattle spoons with head of a frozen shiner was all a guy needed. Caught 21 eyes all between 15 and 18 inches.

Sunday turned out to be beautiful and we fished from the airport east to the edge of the town of Rainy River. Slow up there. Not much on the graph or hooks. 2 15"ers jiggin and 2 16"ers trolling lead with #5 clowns. Only fished from about 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. though. Better morning bite and then 4-5p.m. they go pretty nuts. Kinda like when a guy ice fishes the river I guess. An hour of glory when the sun rises and an hour of glory as the sun sets.

Walking out around Turkey Day is a good early 'average' time for me to find walkable ice over the years. Forecast is not looking the best for icemaking so it may be a bit later again this year.

It's still a good time of year to fish from a boat!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff
