ONE DAY WIND. Gusts return today, but after they subside, you’ve got a great four-day stretch to get going on your favorite winter activities. We talk about that and more and how to beat the bluster in today’s Three Things.
Featured Photo: Tap That. A set of ice anchors will help hold houses in place when the winds rise on your favorite lake. Simply tap a small hole in the ice and screw them down a few inches and tie off! Simonson Photo.

WHAT’S NEW? This week’s new moon (12/7) and calming conditions headed into the weekend will set up another great stretch to be on the ice or to work on filling out any bow or muzzleloader tags. With highs in the 20s, ice will continue to stay solid and set up well for early season adventures – make it through today, and you’re golden!
GENTLE REMINDERS. With the shift to hardwater, the NDG&F has some seasonal regulation changes that come with winter angling. Get your other two rods ready, it’s going to be a great ice season!
LOCK IT IN! Don’t forget for windy days (like today) to invest in a set of ice anchors. These screw-in tie-down points will help keep ice houses – especially hub-style models – from becoming winter kites when the gusts rise.
