I had open water around the shoreline before the snow came. Now its ice again. With 0 degrees this morning I think it'll be closer to May 10th then April 10th.

My grandfather and mother moved on Pike Lake in 1949. He kept a journal on the ice out days since then on Pike Lake(near Duluth). Whether the winter was mild or harsh, the ice was always out by April 27. That's in the same Lat and Long as Fish, although from my experience, Fish Lake ice out is sooner than Pike for some reason

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
