Default Walleye spawning

I wonder how this affects walleye spawning? Would like to see one of those widely successful spawns where you see that age class over many years into the future. I have watched this happen as a result of a spawn sometime in the 1980's. Those are the fish, now about 26 inches.

well enid i to have seen the effects of early spawners it is n now has been fantastic for them withthe season closed well in april n closed till late may so that gives them all the time in thw world to spawn n leave there spawning grounds n to move on the best part is that early ice outs means early sp[awners n they are protected like they should be

Smile Snow in July

Yes I have seen snow in July and hail, but not often. I have a wonderful memory of camping outside Longlac beside the Ferno River when I was a kid. It was the July long weekend. I woke up and opened the tent flap to see the world covered in several inches of heavy snow. My dad was standing in the middle of it shaving with steam rising from his tin wash basin. I forget all the sunny days and remember the weather surprisies.

Default Ice on Nungesser going fast as well.

I was hauling fuel on Nungesser on the 7th and there was a foot of good ice.
But put away the sleigh for this year.
All that rain last weekend cut countless fissures
It is not candlesticked but something similar.
It was below zero on the 7th so no problem
with the warm weather since I'm sure it's going fast
A few weeks ago I said we'd be going in by boat April 25 I'll stick with that estimate.
Anybody want to come up and chase pike??
You'll have the lake to yourselves.

Smile New Record date for ice out

Bay in front of Golden Hook Camp is now 80 % ice free. A new record for the log book. Stoney Bay is wide open, not sure about the rest of Gullrock Lake but plan on putting a boat into the water in the next few days.

Smile Ice basicly gone

We flew west down Red Lake yesterday. No ice past Fisher Islands. Still shore to shore in front of Forestry Point, but won't last long. All the lakes west were open. Stopped at a spawning ground and saw no walleye spawning. Imagine they aren't there yet. They haven't caught up with the weather.
Landed on Howey Bay at the end of the day and parked at our dock!!! Oh yes, this is a record: landed on floats on Howey Bay, April 18, 2010
