    With the weather they have had and are gona get i think the runs are gona be late this year. Most of the tribs are still locked up in ice and the flows are really low for this time of the year. Id give it another 2 weeks. Were gona try the first or second weekend in May. Winter just wont go away this year but it appears that mid next week the weather patterns are gona change and bring in some much needed warm air.

    From what I can see our favorite spot is still iced in. Coming up in two weeks to give it hell.

    Yup everything on the North Shore is big time locked in. Looks like the southern shoreline is pretty much ice free now. We will be out searching the second week of May. Warmer temps next week and the following will get the rivers and streams up and flowing. Need some good sustained southerly winds to blow all that ice out into the main lake.

    I think they will start trickling in sooner rather than later. If the 10 day forecast is accurate it would not surprise me to hear of some fish showing up next week. FM

    We still have a good 1/4 of shore ice. There was also about 1/4 of new ice this morning too. 23F when the sun cleared the horizon this morning.
