The long range forecast looks really good for melting ice. My ice out prediction for Lac Seul is sometime during the first week of May. Opening day this year is May 16th. I'm confident it won't be anything like last year, where ice remained on opening day. Keep checking back and I'll post some pictures of the boat launches and lakes as they open up.
With open water just around the corner this article I wrote on boat batter chargers is a timely one. Click HERE to read it on the Ontario OUT OF DOORS website.
I'm also happy to announce a partnership with Costa Del Mar. They make the best polarized sunglasses in the world. If you spend any amount of time on the water you won't believe the difference their lenses make. Check out the Costa website by clicking on the image below.
I didn't ice fish a ton this winter and I know the updates here have been few and far between. I'll close out my ice season with one last walleye picture.
My guiding schedule for the summer is really filling up fast. If you want to set up a trip, get in touch with me soon.

Ben the pics you posted last year, 2014, of Deception Bay just prior to ice out/opener were great. Our group is heading up for the opener again, year 30!

Hi Bob, Kevin and Ben, I was at Deception landing today. I took some pics and I can email them to you if you want. Wide open! Yahoo! Much better than last year.

I enjoyed your comments and awesome pictures. I fish out of White Wing Resort 2 weeks end of May to mid June. Last year partner got a 29.5 walleye. Beautiful fish. My big northern was 45" and very thick. What a treat. Hope your year is the best ever. Your site is one of the best! Thanks.
