Smile March 29 and still on track for an early breakup

attached is the view from my front yard. Time to get the hut off the ice. You don't need a hut unless you are worried about sun burn!

I just went back in my records that we started keeping in 1991 when we moved to Gullrock. the earliest ice out we had was April 21st. This year looks like it will beat that by quite a bit

Tackleman,
Was that the year that it was so **** hot in June and the fishing went to ****? I know that it was in 2004 or 5.

I remember packing up and leaving. Just can't remember which year.

And is Ranger & Ranger Bay closed until June 15th this year or did the date change?

Thanks!!!

2004 was a great fishing year. I made it to Little Vermilion for the May 14 week and had outstanding pike fishing May 18, 19 & 20. We boated many, many pike over 40" and well over 40". The other days were also good.

I made it back to the same lake for the June 10 week and fishing continued to be outstanding as we caught them on the corners of large bays and in shiner spawns. Moving water produced as usual.

Made it to the same water for August 7 week and a week that in October that included Thanksgiving dinner with friends. Again we had great fishing.

Maybe early ice out means good fishing.

I'm getting excited.

Default could be a record break-up

In my mother-in-law's records, a plane landed on Howey Bay on floats on April 20, 1987.
In 1959, on April 29, she went by boat to the west end of Red Lake.
In 2002, on May 21, we were finally able to park planes at our dock on Howey Bay.
Yesterday it poured rain all afternoon and evening. Still raining today. This year could be the earliest break up that we know of.
