Burntside ice!

5 posts in this topic

Just checked the ice thickness 40 feet from shore on a bay I know froze very early in December.

There is a double layer of ice, a soft 2 inch top layer, about an inch or 2 of water, then just over 8 inches of ice that is very soft. frown.gif

The shoreline there has slush, but not as much slush as the snowmobile tracks by the Van Vac landing.

There is also a hole of open water about 100 feet from shore at Van Vac.

The snowmobile trail is staked, but I do not know the ice conditions out there. confused.gif

HaHa!!!

Did you check out from the "Top-Secret Landing"??? cool.gif

Did you get a load of that guy's face in the store who asked me where I was fishing to which my reply was "Super Secret Location." The look on his face when I said that was classic!!! smirk.gif

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
