Water on top of the ice

Recommended Posts

alex1

Just wondering if anyone else ran into water or slush on topn of the ice this weekend. I went to go out on a couple of lakes this past weekend but didn't after getting to the shore and seeing water and slush spots on top. With this snow we got I wasn't about to go out and find a crack by accident and getting wet. crazy.gif

Lots of lakes looking like that right now. Sure isn't going to make good ice with that. All of the weight on the ice from the snow we got is causing flooding just like in the spring.

That was my thoughts exactly! Did you get out at all over the weekend?

Now with more snow falling it's not looking good for awhile. mad.gif

I saw the same thing on Sunday when I went out as well. The snow hid some pressure ridges where I was. It is not going to be a good year for the ice!

No, was still chasing roosters. Am going to try maybe tomorrow but going to stay close to shore on a smaller lake. Snowing really good right now and thats just going to compound the problem with the insulation factor and the weight. Starting to look like a season with extensive use of the portables.

Anyone know if Lk Miltona had ice? Bad getting all this snow when it was making such great ice, it'll give the fish a break this winter!

West end of Miltona has ice, and there've been some portables out. Now has a foot and a half of snow though. No idea how much ice on main lake. BE CAREFUL. Still seeing slushy spots out on Geneva with the new snow...water is still seeping through.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
