They are still around at dusk, dawn, and when it is cloudy. Last biting was this past Monday before the afternoon rains moved in.

I was up on Cross Bay / Frost last week and I think we saw 3 mosquitoes the whole trip.

Thanks to everyone. Next week looks like it is on the chilly side (low-mid 40's at night, mid 50's up to very low 60', so I think things should be great, as usual. Could be hard nipple weather swimming though. Oh well.

Leaving early next week on a trip off the Gunflint. Normally, the mosquitoes are pretty much done by now in my experience. However, the Shagawa Lake web cam on the Ely webcam site seems to have a bunch of mosquitoes on the lens every day. Are the skeeters still pretty fierce? Thanks.

Did the Seagull to SAC to Big Sag 2 weeks ago and very few problems with mosquitoes. At night they would come out bu still not too bad.

Did Ham to Poplar last week. Skeeters where pretty much a non issue until dark came out. By then I was ready to hit the sack anyways.
