With that last blast of artic air it looks like most of the west end of the lake is frozen up. For those who live up there, how long do you figure it'll be before there's some fishable ice on the shore? Looks like lows of 0 or below all week along the shore, with four lows of -10 or colder, so should it just be a matter of time? I been itching to fish the big lake since I last fished it in '09, its been too long

It all depends on wind direction, as you can see in that sat. pic there is a sheet of ice on the west end of LS but it moves in and out because of the wind because it is not locked up to land. If we get a long period of east wind it will be fish-able but that can change in a day or even an hour, that's why smart people will drag a small boat/canoe out there. The only way to have sustainable ice fishing on LS for any long period of time is for a complete lock-up of the lake and that just doesn't happen very often.

How about shore fishing? I suppose that will be awhile? Any information about Two Harbors breakwall fishing?

Saturday at the French there was about 15 vehicle all shore fishing as it is wide open out there. Sunday when I went by at 11:30 am there was 8 vehicles and guys with there long rods right in front of the parking area/mouth. Went by 45 minutes later and they were all done as the ice pack pushed in tight to the shore. Today open water for about a mile or more out. They have been fishing the shore there all winter if there is no ice or big waves or -20.

Yesterdays and todays wind is killing the ice in the Duluth area. Yesterday by dark it was open at least 2 miles out from Knife River to 3 miles out at the French River area to as far as you could see to the south shore at the Lester River in town.

Until these West and NW winds stop for an extended amount of time, there will be open water on the MN shore. Last Sunday there was open water all the way up to at least Tofte. Was dreaming of being in the boat when I passed the Silver Bay marina : )

There is very good ice in the Apostle Islands if you really got the itch to fish lakers/salmon/trout thru the ice.
