according to the weather service, and local observation...we got about 12-15 inches. hasn't seemed to drift much. latest forecast says we could get another foot to foot and a half between wednesday and the weekend.

I haven't been out since the snow but I'm betting that slush could become an issue if it hasn't yet.

pretty deep on waska everyones getting stuck even alot of 4wd just dont let off the gas smile.gif Crappies are liking the snow on the ice caught a limit in just 2 hours during the day. Wish someone come plow a trail or two it would be really great, if we get another foot it will be really tough. Accesses all seem to have water under the snow frown.gif

I think the melting will compact the snow and then we are going to see some water start to seep-up onto the ice. It could end-up like last year when we had water on the ice which froze. It was miserable getting around. But let's not complain, even if Jay is right and we get an additional foot or so, we need it. The lakes went into the winter season way to low.

I second your sentiments Wayne, we'll take all the snow we can get. It won't be around all that long anyway as we're nearly in the home stretch. A lot of rain this spring would be welcomed as well.

Just gotten off the lake, wasn't to bad if you have 4x4, had the lake all to myself. grin.gif. If we get dump on and the wind blows, bring a shovel, there's going to be some big drifts to bust thru. The upside, there's enough snow to go around my portable to keep the wind out.

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
