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.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
