trophy I thought for sure that the ice you were fishing on would be more then 2 inches. The lake will not freeze over until December. Oh well let's pray for some cold weather. ::) ::)
Enjoy life now!!!! Get on the Hardwater before it melts away!!!

Out4trout....thats a oneway road out of town....they dont encourage anyone coming back...jkg.. ;D...not suprisingly, the first lake that now has 3-4 inches of clear ice, is only about 17 miles from Clear Lake where i took the first shot on the update....and let me tell you, it was very warm...could easily fish from the boat without gloves...but its a deep lake and wont freeze over until next month late...typical of lake trout lakes....such a range of ice...you would think that ponds at the highest elevation in manitoba would be much thicker....not!!!!...just be careful venturing out...remember, a buddy, rope, and your picks...soon everyone....Grump

Hey Grump, looking at your 2nd picture.....do you guys only have one-way roads up there?

Contrary to popular belief, you have now seen proof that the prairie provinces are not all flat with no trees  :D

Lets have an update on Conditions Gump ... or anyone else that has hit the ice so far ... Im psyched the temps are falling here in Pa ... Ice is still weeks away for safe ice but its coming soon ... Im much like a little kid knowing that Christmas is coming when this type of weather hits ... I updated my hand auger to a Strikemaster 2000 ... now im ready to drill some holes all i need is more ice ....

Went for another drive today and it looks bad. The ponds that were frozen over are now showing open spots. Minnedosa lake looks like last ice in April. Today was a gorgeous day but not for ice fishing. Might have to take out the summer rods again. :'( :'( :'(

improving pretty much every day now should have 10 lakes or so to pick from by next weekend, not real cold temps but some consistent lows every night, hopefully finally feel good enough tommorow to go and try to ice some trout.

Well, you'll have to keep us posted about your fishing MeadowPikeMan, 'cause our ice is disappearing.  Whereabouts are you in Sask? - I'm presuming Meadow Lake area, that right?, or are you farther north still?

Say Hi to Santa for me Grumpymoe and please put in a request for a new vex for me.  The farthest north I have made it to fish is Nippissing in Ontario.  Thr fishing has been declining quite a bit in recent years though.  I think the gill nets are really taking their toll.  I always make it Simcoe a few times a year as well but that is not really North Country.  I may be due for an adventure.
