I'm on the north east side of Rush by the St. Lawrence access, where did they go through? We have had about 12 inches of ice. Thanks

The news reports state it was in the middle of the lake. I know, that does not narrow it down much.

The ice is still not all that good, folks. The majority is ok for sled traffic, it seems, but there are some spots that still give me the creeps.

I live on a small lake, under 1000 acres. It has about a foot of ice on it. In fact, I saw a F150 out on the 'community spot' this afternoon. He might be ok, as lots of holes have been drilled in that area, and it pretty much consolidated the slushy stuff into ice pack. I don't know if I'd risk a vehicle yet, though.

When I was returning home on my sled, I went across several slush fields, some quite deep. I also noted a what looked to be wash out holes in them. These were small circles of dark water that looked to go all the way through. I gave them a wide berth.

I have never seen such variable ice this late into December.

People have been driving trucks out there for more than 2 weeks now. I am suprised no one has gone in earlier. Those guys are lucky to be OK

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      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!
