Visual Ice-Pack...?

6 posts in this topic

i noticed by looking at and zooming on the weather (Contact Us Please) com weather satelite you can see the ice-pack on the lake. its hard to get to and only shows at a certain zoom...pretty close. the zoom is incredible. follow the shore line and you really get a perspective. you can see landings and what appears to be the bottom. too bad we couldnt zoom to the extents...

Not sure what you are seeing, but the aerial photos on weather.com aren't real time. The UMN climatology office listed the 28th as the official ice out date for Mille Lacs.

Also if you look at the east side of the lake you can what looks like boats with wakes behind them.

i noticed what looks like that also. its fun to research and look at. its not realtime, but it is fairly current from everything i can tell. i can see my truck parked in my drive and have noticed vehicles other times. i wonder if anyone has taken a boat out into the lake looking for an icepack or flown over it?

in the first message starting this blog there is a note to (contact us please). im sorry if it wasnt appropriate. it wasnt meant as advertising or anything like that, just information for anyone to learn more about mille lacs. i dont want to be offensive or do anything against the rules. it is a very knowledgeable experience being part of fishingminnesota.com and i just want to contribute.

best of luck to all on opener,

regards,

I just browsed the site in question to look at my house and developement. Our house was built in 2004--as one of the last houses built in said development. The photo on the Sat image showed only 4 houses in our developement...so that had to be from 2002 to 2003.

FYI

      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.
