Nope, some open water out there, now. However, I would be surprised to see it out by the weekend. If it does go out by the weekend, its going to be blown out by the strong South East winds they are predicting. That might make the north side of the lake messy.

I think you are better off looking south 10-15 miles, where the ice is off, or almost off. LeHommeDue and Geneva will get the last of the ice off today. Minnewaska and Osakis are both open.

I hope Miltona will be early next week, maybe over the weekend, if we get some rain.

Don't worry, though, there are lots of chores to do, now that the snow is gone. Just stop by I can let you borrow a rake! grin.gif

Sounds like big wind coming. That should eat the ice of Miltona off.

You don't need to go to Miltona to catch slab crappies. They are bitting real well on some of the tiny lakes in the area already.

East of the flats is all clear except for Tamerac Bay, which was full of ice, plus about 1/4 mile out from there, when I looked about 11:00 this morning. I would guess that the its all clear on the west side, except maybe by Johnson's RV Park, and maybe into Lucky Acres bay.

The wind is definitely piling the ice onto shore in the Sandy Beach area.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Why don't you take the free Dewalt I offered you....no more worries about not enough power...lol :-)

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
