Jonah's got it right. Except, if you're worried about Long, keep in mind that the south end if always first to go out!

Thanks for the info. Was hoping to come up in early May to open up and get the dock/boats in the water. I was up in February and it was down right cold for a long period of time. The ice was pretty thick and I didnt know if this could push the ice-out into May on Long?

It's hard to say...I don't know if all the snow will change anything, but it's pretty deep on the south end. Forcast is predicting warm weather...a good couple of weeks could do some serious damage...

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
