Nope, and with the snow coming down the way it is right now and the forcasted temps, forget about the weekend too. frown.gif And to think it was 75 a week ago. confused.gif

Just talked to Dad. East Battle looks the same as it did a week ago. Cripes.

I am looking at S. Turtle as I eat my breakfast this morning. With the temps forecast and this snow, this ice will probably stay put for a while. I dont see any temps getting much above freezing until the 8th.

There is 10-20 feet of open water along shore, but I see no wetness through the fresh snow on the remaining ice.

My original guess for open water was April 16. Looks like I might have an outside shot of hitting that now.

      It is recommended that you start in April

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
