Well, Jim said there was plenty of ice on Moose Lake. Lots of snow though too!! He did moderately well on Saturday. I'll be heading on up to the cabin on Friday after work and will fish on Saturday hopefully!!

Yes there is snow on the lakes, but I am not going to throw in the towel! I figure where there is a will there is a way. With all the snow it should bring out the snowmobilers, they will pack down paths across the ice, plus we keep getting subzero temps up here (-22 in Bigfork this am). In fact my fishing buddy did this for me last year, made several trips across the lake with his snowmobile and packed it down real good. Then I took the 4 wheeler and rode out on the paths, after a while the snow settles some, the slush underneath freezes and voila!!! I also might hit Winnie one of these days and pay for access and use plowed roads. Sure is not going to stop my 2 trips to Millelacs or Burntside Bash.

thanks gals. reason i asked i had duty phone this past weekend and got a call from someone up at taconite harbor and the only way he could explain the weather was NASTY! need to try and figure out when i can get up and blow the driveway out cause that may take the better part of the day, and when its not 20 below out.

It won't stop us either. It's worth paying the access fees to get on Winnie when it gets this sloppy but I don't think Highbanks is open until the end of the month anyway. It's cold here today too. It's 15 below!

I am for sure in for the Burntside Bash now too!!! Yay me!!

Christmas Eve, -9 here right now and I get the upmost pleasure of going out and firing up the snowblower and clearing the driveway. The driveway is 380 feet long so it's gonna take a while. The "old grouch" is really ticked at me because I am the one who talked him into moving up here. He's not real happy with the no Christmas presents policy this year either. Our present will probably be a plow for the 4 wheeler. He should actually be happy that he doesn't have to shop for me, although a couple of chubby darters would be nice. Have a wonderful day everyone!!!

Well it only took me an hour and a half. Halfway through my favorite fishing buddy stopped by with his truck and plowed what I hadn't already done. So Lisa tell Jim he doesn't have to stop by and do it for me, HaHaHa.

I am so ready to go up. Don't see it happening for a while, maybe the 9th weekend.

Have to get this work project over with first and it looks like the next 2 weekends are work related. I am getting to old for this.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
