Thunder now that it's official, let the games begin grin. Looks like nightime lows in the high to mid 20s for this weekend and nightime lows in the teens for most of next week.

Hope to see you guys at the show next weekend.

Goodluck with the show this weekend.

King - had me going for a while there. Safe ice by next weekend seems doubtful but if there is some around I'm sure you will find it. Hope the massive amount of runoff from last weeks showers didn't dirty the waters real bad. Be nice to be on the pond before Christmas.

Thunder - I think Timmy said exactly the same thing "not that I need anything but it doesn't hurt to look" at the diner in Richfield last year laugh. I know what you mean, I've got lures I haven't used in years and I still buy more. Looking forward to using the "Thunder special" on those Oneida Lake jumbos this year. I've been walking up and down my basement stairs 20 times a day to get ready for that little hill in Jewell crazy.

Going to the show on Friday hope to see you guys then.

22* and 4 inches of snow on the ground sunday I took a drive to a few small lakes south of me and there were a few backsets skimmed over.The water levels on the small lakes are high from that rain that we had but some calm nights might skim them over grin.

Been getting pounded as well the inches are piling up at least its only light fluffy stuff smile This should chill the water down more. With the next 2-3 nights lows in the single digits and low teens with the low wind speeds some small lakes should be locking up One more week and it should be no problem getting out might even try this upcoming Sunday gotta shoot a deer though before I start icefishing smile

Yeah Thunder thats just a lovely report. The 2nd day of January and all you see is green, green, green. Went out with Glen for a while yesterday, will report later, and the ice was pretty soft already. Continued mild temps and rain will do wonders for it.

On the bright side, good day to wash that Toyota!!! Have a good day, need to meet up on the hard water.

Thunder - thanks for the report. That amount of snow on top of what was already on the lakes makes the lakes we fish south of you just about unfishable. We need a fn thaw.

When all said and done the snow was up to my knees (about 20") and it was heavy stuff that was compacting as soon as it built up some depth. The lakes are a fun slushy mess smile walked through snow/slush today and yesterday that was half way up to my knees woo hoo fun stuff

    • Did a lot of my riding and camping up on the North shore of lake Superior.  I added a Seat concepts seat and a ATV cover on that. Windshield, skid plate, soft side bags, 12v plug for a GPS and gps mount and foam over grips. No crazy mods, kept it all stock for reliability. At 42 HP stock it had plenty of power for me and I would rather get there then get half way faster!  Lol 
    • 2009 Sportsman 500HO. only had about 450 miles on it.
    • Just south of you we all kinds of birds. Mostly wood peckers, finches and blue jays. filling everything about every other day.
    • I sold the last of my ATV's in Sept while the used market was hot with intentions to upgrade. I figured there wouldn't be any better time where the price on old beat up machines would be higher. I couldnt believe what people were willing to pay for 15-20yr old ATV's that had seen some tough use.   My plan was all these people were buying stuff and realized they would never use it and sell it when they didnt want to store it for the winter. I figured with a saturated market we would see some good deals to be had this time of year but people are just buying everything up at absurd prices. Even the people who are upside down on their toys are asking way to much. 
    • Leech, I saw where you were looking for riding partners, I'd take you up on it now. Lol. I imagine you have a lot of nice dual sport riding in your area, we have lots of it in western ND also, hence the DR. I love this bike. I wish you were parting with that white one about now, I'd take it off your hands. I like that color.  I've done a few mods to mine, the seat had to go! I've added an engine case guard since this photo was taken. I'm waiting for bark busters to get here, they are a necessity. Then I will be good.  
    • I hunted Idaho this past fall for deer and elk. We seen a fair number of turkeys. I plan to go out a little early for the hunt next year. I was thinking I could add a turkey hunt to the fun. Does anyone have any experience hunting turkey in the fall in Idaho? I would be deer / elk unit 6. Thanks minky
    • What kind of wheeler do you have? Im just waiting for my new Honda Rancher to show up that I put money down on a month ago. Everything is getting hard to come by these days. Starting to look like another winter where we get to ride for a week or 2 in March again
    • Hi.. wondering about ice reports around MN, specifically around the Duluth area..hope someone will read this and reply,☺️    
    • bird feeders are awefully quiet lately around home. not sure if no snow on the ground has something to do with it or not??🤔
    • Looks like next spring now since I'm hoping for some snow soon for the sled. Fixed up a little hunting/toy hauler to hunt out of and haul the wheeler with this fall. So may be I'll park right in your lot!  😏
