The ice is getting close!

The ice is getting close some have been going out close to shore and finding some nice walleyes all ready this year.  I have been out just enough to see the ice condition and see progress.  When I was their the other day we had 5 inches.  With warm weather this week we may not make much but so far with no snow on the lake that will help.  The two guys that I talked to had 5 walleyes for the night all nice 18-20 inches.  I hope to get out Monday, Tuesday before the St. Paul Ice fishing show in MN December 2,3,4.  We are looking or a great year again this year with the fishers Dept. saying we have had three great year hatching for Northern, walleye and the perch.  This summer we seen huge population of 11-14″ that should be 13-16″ for this winter.  Our perch fishing was good starting back in February last year and hope to find them again this year.  This summer again we had some days of walleye fishing catching 10-15 nice perch pulling spinners.  This year again we have new product from Eskimo.  The most comfortable pop up version made it is insulated making for no frost and warmer inside fishing.  New fl-20 vexilar are on their way.  Northland has come out with some new ideas as well.  Hope to see you out on the ice.  Call 701-351-6058 if you are looking for a great gift idea for someone in your family.  Ask for the best cyber Monday saving a round.
