30-32" snow now well its compacted a bit,cold too! 1yr.1mo.ago first crappie.You can now get a burning permit in atwater at city offices,and its good till Dec.31st.Do ya think 30" snow=3"H2O? I finally got a burn permit cause I was thinkin we would'nt have 3" snow on the ground to burn legally with out a permit.Now I have to shovel snow off the piles just to start them,maybe next week.

I guess i could put in a guess also. I think the ice will be off the lakes or should i say the shallow smaller lakes by the 10th of April. Just a shot in the dark. I am getting really anxious to get the boat back in the water. Might have to head to the river soon.

I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
