Post by: IceDrisher on Oct 31, 2017, 09:35 PM
If the weather forecast holds, I'm going to bet we will be fishing hard water by the weekend after Remembrance Day!

Stopped to look at Ferguson today, just to see how thick.  Looks like 2 or 2 1/2 inches by shore, frozen right across though.

haven't been on any lakes yet been hunting however now that moose are closed now I will venture out to some local lakes soon. got to dig out the ice fishing gear and tune it up. The temps have been perfect for the big freeze. I notice rivers and creeks are freezing up quick so I think it will be good ice very soon. tight lines all and be safe

Yup I was way off. Looks like most of our local lakes will be good to go by this weekend!

Just a reminder to only keep what you need and try to let the big ones go! Good luck out there and be safe  :tipup:

Awesome first day out on the hardwater.  Probably got 15 or so, no real monsters but a good way to get the season going.

Guess I should have read the middle of the thread lol I checked out 4 lakes today. Solid 5-7 inch on all of them. Saw some monster brookies but they didn't want anything to do with what I had to offer.
