    Do you know if Beaver Bay is froze up or can a boat still get out?

    If you go down there it's not too hard to see where the boats break ....25'-44' 4 more boats were out there tonight, I might be there tomorrow. There's a very good chance.

    @Rowdie thx for the info! I’ve never fished south of the cannonball... are most of the anglers getting there fish right around fort Yates? Or does a guy have to run a ways to find the fish?

    No, very short run. Find the Channel and fish the edge. Not sure if it matters much where on the channel, we focus on bends, the bends right by town. We only got 5 yesterday, well 4 really kept one that was brought up out 40' too fast. Lot more little ones yesterday. Right at sundown, I couldn't drop my line for more than 10 seconds without getting a bite. Dink attack though. Pretty slow compared to Wed. and Thur.

    Just an FYI.....I heard a guy tried to put in at Beaver Bay and it was iced over, he then drove to Cattail and there was a 2 inch ice sheet in front of the ramp that went out a ways. Gonna try tomorrow if its not too windy. The Yates ramp should be good to go as its out in the wind, which can really suck but at least it ices in after bays freeze up.
