Hopefully it stays open until after the 6-10 inches of snow
No Safe ice yet guys! Checked a bunch of areas out on the main lake today. Its only been cold enough to make ice the last couple nights. There is some ice in the bays and back waters, But for the most part the wind has a lot of the lake still WIDE OPEN!!
With next weeks cold temps the lake should lock up good. I will report back mid week with snow/ice report.
MOON PHASE (93%)
My friend Dick from Oak Creek joined me on the river at Chester's Creek this morning. Very foggy, and I mean dense. 50-75 feet visibility until 11:30 before it started to lift. When the sun finally came out it was just beautiful out there. We pulled flies tipped with minnows and crawlers, and trolled. We finished with over 20 "shorties", 1 white bass, and 1 northern. Water temp was 49 when we launched, and 52 at the end of the trip.
Keep a tight line!!!
