Heading out in a couple hours. Temps in the 50's slight wind out of the south and the barometer dropping.  Should be a great day on the ice, just cant decide where to go lol

fished east oakwood yesterday and it was the dead sea. I had never fished there before so thought I would check it out. Fished from 1pm to 10pm and only caught one dink walleye at about 8:30pm. Moved around all day until just before dark and got settled on some bumps off a point in the SE end of the lake. Didnt mark or see anything on the camera the entire day. Lots of guys coming and going on the far north end but I didnt want to fish among the noise especially in such a shallow lake.

anyone else make it out in the brookings area since friday? I am just curious as to how the ice is holding up after the rain on Saturday and warm weather today? After a week of warm temps think ice will still be safe for atv's later this week yet?

I had made plans to take tomorrow off and spend the night on the ice tonight with my kids since they don't have school tomorrow. Doesn't look like that's going to be an option any more. I have done some pretty creative things to get on and off the ice before but not going to do that with 2 6 year olds.

 

What a terrible year for ice fishing. Only blessing is that it will keep some pressure off some of the lakes. Might have to play bumper boats at the river but I am really hoping for a cold snap to firm up the shorelines instead.

    • Honestly I'd rather just face the Hawks whenever we get our shot, we are either good enough or we are not. This the first year we have been better than them for the entire season, I say bring em on. I don't want to trade anyone away right now, havingn a guy like Scandella on the bottom pair makes us that much better. Throw some picks at a rental and keep our depth, no reason to make any drastic moves. We should be warry of San Jose too, they have a very solid team and made the trip last year but everyone else should be beatable if we play like we can and don't run into a hot goalie.
    • Pope suggests it's better to be an atheist than a bad Christian. CNN   Count me among those saying, "I don't share your beliefs, but you're one awesome pope. Keep on rocking."    

    • What is more likely, that your half of the media, gov & courts are honest and trustworthy and the other half is trying to destroy the world. Or that both sides are playing the public to enrich & empower themselves via a broken and corrupt system. Picking a side in this mess is playing the game by their rules. Your basic salami tactics to control the masses.
    •     Both from the same news outlet.
    •   Then why are you asking me this question?     Isn't that the way it's done now that we are in the Trump era?
    • Sounds like there is still some good snow up the Gunflint. I sent an email to Bearskin lodge about their web cam not working and got a reply.   "That's correct. The repaired webcam has broken again, unfortunately, so only the same picture gets sent.  It is fairly inaccessible because of deep snow, but someone will be going out soon to take it down so we can get it fixed again.  It will probably have to be put up in a new place, which will disappoint people who have been keeping running snaps of the photos to make video.   For what it's worth, it looks exactly the same now as it did when that picture was taken.  Winter tends to look the same everyday here."   Sue Bearskin Lodge   -----Original Message----- From: Steve A Sent: Thursday, February 23, 2017 11:10 AM To: stay@bearskin.com Subject: From the Bearskin Contact Form   From: Steve A Zip: 55429   Message Body: Whats up with your web cam? It's had the same picture for a month. There are a lot of us snowmobilers who watch your cam to know if there is any snow left up there and if we should come up sledding or not. Can you check to see if it's working?  Thanks.  
    • Any combo of Dunn/Jones is not something you can build a contender around. Either could eventually become a decent backup; neither looks to be leadership/starter material. I would have no problem with trading Rubio for another PG, as long as it is the right dude. 

      Much like Rubio, Rose just isn't worth the salary he will command. 
    • Anyone who took Brett Hite is a happy camper! Wayyyy too early yet to get too excited or too worried. Bobby Lane stuck an 8+, and his total weight is 17 and change, so he could vault up is he makes a couple of good culls.
