The ice near Prescott is 16-22" so you should not need an extension.

Hi 37 marine, you will quickly learn that as a newbie to the site, you are often better off to go back through all of the old posts and read through them to get valuable information. there is probably more info on the Croix than you really even need already posted here. Don't take it the wrong way....I mean no disrespect at all. People just see you are new and simply don't respond because they figure you haven't gone back and done your reading homeowork before asking questions. Good luck on the Croix and welcome to the site!

Prescott normally has a patch of open water, so yes there is current, be carefull. Plus Bayport has a patch of openwater as well. The Croix has current is places unlike other narrow fast moving rivers, but enough current easily to make thin ice.

Keep catchin'

      I think I have  been checking the 10 day forecast every 20 minutes hoping the ice will come faster

      I'm looking for the best and cheapest place to get a 30 pound propane tank filled. Seems like all I can find are exchanges for 20 pounders.
