Paul Nelson column for Dec. 11: Ice fishing season begins in the Bemidji area
Lakes in the Bemidji area started to freeze about a week ago. Some of the shallow lakes already have more than four inches of ice, which is usually enough for anglers to walk on.
The extended forecast calls for more cold temperatures this coming week. Ice conditions can improve quickly with sub-zero temperatures, especially if there is not much snow on the ice.
