SUNDAY SURGE. Here on this final day of firearms deer season, things make their way into the low 50s with stronger west winds moving things around, and with the warm-up and a tag-out may come a longing for ice fishing. We focus on that and the future forecast in today’s Outdoors Roundup.

GET ICED. The NDG&F has a breakdown of all the ice fishing information you need to get a jumpstart on your season. With quick views of lakes and the status of each fishery, along with tips and regulations, this page is worth a bookmark for the 2019-20 season.
SHOWING OFF. The 2019 Fargo Ice Show is set for Dec. 13-15 with a massive display of all the major manufacturers and brands. Scheels Arena will be home to this year’s event where hundreds of booths will be set up for anglers to check out.
BACK TO FREEZING. Things cool off after today’s warmth and we muddle around freezing through the Thanksgiving Holiday. After that, things get a little spooky with an early prediction of up to 12 inches of snow for next weekend by early model runs. Will it hold? We’ll see. In the meantime, enjoy yourself afield!
