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...

regards,

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

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
