This is the fishing report for Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2018, sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce. You may also hear this report by calling 218.847.5743.
The majority of the lakes in the Detroit Lakes area are iced over now as of Tuesday November 13th. Cormorant and Rose lakes remain completely open and will be for a number of days yet. THE ICE IS NOT SAFE YET! We will have a couple of days with highs near 40 degrees (Wed & Thurs) and then we settle into another stretch of freezing days. The small shallow lakes that iced over first should have walkable ice by the weekend. Check conditions, check as you go out on the ice with an ice chisel, and proceed with caution. Not all ice is the same or consistent now in the very early ice conditions. No need to rush it as we are into one of the earliest ice overs we have had for a number of years.
