The map in Mike's link, GM thread, shows Bemidji havin 14". But Ball Club only had 3", 1 spot in GR only shows 6" but another had 9", & Coleraine has almost 11" for it's total. :crazy: Any of those higher totals will make the ice conditions pretty tough.

My brother got an email from our neighbor early this morning & he's up there. He attached a pic of him plowing his driveway & it looked to be about 6" on the ground to me. I emailed him back so he should get back to me later. I'll see if I have time :rolleyes: to keep you in the loop.  ;) :laugh: :laugh:

I asked him when he went up & if he'd seen anybody out on the bay yet. Yeah, Bowstring Shores is on the east side a bit west of the airport & it looked like they could have quite a bit blown in to their shoreline to me. :scratch: Kind of hard to tell though. :confused: Geiger's was back up yday & looks a lot different but our wind would blow that snow away from their shore.

Geigers posted they had about 10" of snow but the wind blew most of it off the lake. They also said there was 4" of ice on the lake.    :happy1:

 :scratch: Turns out the neighbor is still in the metro & the pic he sent me was of the one of the new owners of the resort playin around with their new JD Gator & plow setup. They said we had 10" & only 1" of ice. They're newbies so I'm not certain of their ice check but.................... :confused: Thought somethin was screwy as the pic showed an articulated plow & that's not what the neighbor has.

TWC says -6 up there now, looks like they've backed off on the snow & moved it to Thursday AM. Lookin like close to 40* Sunday-Wednesday too. Neighbor's goin up tomorrow or Thursday as well, probably just overnight though so he can take his Ice Castle up.

Not sure what the 2021 reg's are for mille lcas as of december 1st for walleye fishing,gave up on the pond a few years ago,but early ice on mille lacs was the best for shallow walters...

Heck we had one day of early ice 8"s as we walked out off Big point one december morning years ago,5 hours later we walked off at hunter's point as the lake broke up in a strong wind and we floated all the way to hunter's point from 3 mile reef.

Today checking the mille lacs web cams nary a soul out ....sad deal as the lake is busting at the seems with nice sized walleyes.
