Not fishable yet, But I heard Upper Red has ice 10 feet out from the shoreline and the bemidji area is gettin ready to freeze up.

Saw a couple guys on a Metro lake yesterday! Couldn't have been more than an inch. Crazy! But it's starting!

I know of a few guys spearing around Bemidji area already. Im in Grand rapids and things are closing up fast. Small lakes are iced over already with the temps these last 2 days.

I checked 6 lakes in the Alexandria area this morning, with an average of 2-3" of ice. Couple more days and we should be good to go.

All lakes here in the Black Hills have at least 4", though most have more now. The larger lakes still have spotty ice on the main bodies, but the bays are good to go. The smaller lakes and ponds have around 6+" now thanks to this cold snap.

I was out in central Mn. and found 5 3/4" of ice, No fish to brag about but really nice to be out.

Up here in the Grand Rapids, MN area there are lakes with 6+" already and other larger lakes with less. I was out spearing Sunday and there was a good 5-6" of ice. A cop in town told me an ATV went through the ice on Pokegama Lake (large lake) already Monday morning. There are perm shacks out already on some local smaller lakes.
