Local anglers are beginning to venture out on many small to mid-sized lakes that offer 4-8 inches of good, solid ice. Yet angler beware, larger bodies of water won't have the same ice thickness and can still be dangerous to those trying to travel atop. (Jason Durham / For the Enterprise)

Ice time has arrived on most of the smaller lakes

Ice fishing season has recently been the storm in the Park Rapids area.

Though southern portions of Minnesota have had snow accumulations up to 16 inches, the northern part of the state continues to gain ice thickness every time the thermometer dips below the freezing point.


That equates to good news for us, due to the lack of insulation from the minimal snow and the sub-zero temps throughout the night.
