any of you outgoing, electro savvy, technical guys want to mount a few web cams along the shore and up the mouths of the streams. that way I can have the deisel idling rods and reels ready for the ice to break free and come down those streams. oh yeah, maybe a good digital thermometer for the water temps near the cameras would be great too. I got about 20 or 30 bucks for ya to help out in the expenses. thanx for the help let us know when you get it all set up and online!!! If there is already something like this, the website address would be great! grin.gifgrin.gifwink.gif

There is one by the Aerial Bridge; there you can at least see the mouth of the harbor.

try using google earth to view the shore. I don't know much about it but if it's in realtime you should be able to make out ice from open water i would think.

Cool site Orlip.

Didn't see any N'shore rivers though. smirk.gif

youngie22, keep checking in, when the rivers open I'm sure someone will speak up. Pray for rain.

GOOGLE Earth is awesome as it is, but its not real time. frown.gif They periodically take sectional pictures and patch them together. One section can and will be bordered by others taken during different seasons and weather conditions.

I still dig it though. cool.gif

The guys at FM will be your most reliable asset!

I live on the vermillion river in Hastings, (awesome little stream). Watching it rage w/ snow melt made me get even more excited for the shore. What a "flash" snow melt the last few days. THe waterfalls down here look really cool w/ all this whater. Don't think the brownies in there no what is going on. THanx far that info on the cameras; had no clue those were there. I think google earth isn't very real time, would be interested in nowing what tyoe of cycles they might run. Gotta get out, need some trout!

      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.
