I was just curious about lake levels in the area. We are down close to 20 inches from last spring in the mid-gunflint trail area. This will make a huge difference for us this summer. I'm not sure that we'll even be able to put our pontoons in at the landing and if we can I don't know if the water will be deep enough at the dock we tie them to.

Did the snow in March help in the Duluth area? Most of it missed us.

I'm thinking of getting into the prop and lower unit business. tongue.gif

I agree; everything's ridiculously low around here right now. We'll need some pretty heavy rain pretty soon here, otherwise it might be a pretty rough season...

I'm more concerned what effect the low water could if any have on spawning eyes, gills and crappies.

Frank they will find a spot to do their bussiness dont worry about that. With low water Im more worried about temps. I have a feeling by opener everything will be pretty close to normal.

The St.Louis has gravel bars in the middle of the river and people walked out to them, put a picnic table out and must have been enjoying the scenery. I hope they get the table out before the water rises. grin.gif

I have a feeling that this year is gioing to be a good opener and season all over the Northland. I think by opener fish will be into post spawn and hungry. But mother nature could screw that up with some more snow and freezing temps like it was a few years back.

I read that the lake is still 2 in. above the record low which was set in 1926. Still scary though.

Maybe, but I'm thinking that the mice and the bees will be bothersome.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      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?
    • Bigfatbert
      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
