Daily Edge for Thu. Dec. 13

WARM SURGE.  Today and tomorrow continue the region’s warming trend and set the stage for great weekend hunting conditions with moderate winds and above-average temps.  We talk about that and more in today’s Three Things.

HOT! HOT! HOT! (Relatively).  Today and tomorrow’s highs in the low-to-mid-40s are 10-15 degrees higher than the average top temp this time of year (26 degrees).  With receding snow and clearing country roads, you may get one last shot at those hard-to-reach hunting areas before the holidays!


ICE HOUSE REGS.  The NDG&F has their annual listing of important information for those venturing out onto the hardwater this time of year and dropping off their permanent shack.  Remember, it must float!


KEEP IT UP.  Keep an eye on those shacks this weekend as temperatures climb.  The metal walls tend to absorb sunlight and radiant heat and melt and weaken new ice around them this time of year when unseasonable temps settle in. Get the hitch ready, just in case!


Stay Sharp!
