We're coming up the December 15-18, and normally like to make the run to the Islands on the trail that heads from the river to the angle.  I realize the river/lake was not completely locked up as of Saturday's satellite image, and you just got snow and are dealing with extremely high winds for the next 36-48 hours, but the temps certainly look more favorable for making ice.  Just looking for a local's perspective on whether it's even reasonable to believe that the trail may be staked by the 15th of December.  Thx.

It's a possibility but I would not count on it.  We are getting colder temps, +3 deg this morning.  The issue is going to be all the snow we got yesterday.  Anywhere it collected on the ice will get insulated and not get as thick as where there is no ice.  The resorts will know a lot more in a week.  Morris Pt Resort reported that they only had 2" of ice on Sunday where it had been open water last.

Thanks for the quick feedback.  Yes, it's going to be a waiting game now, but at least it's looking more favorable for ice fishing that weekend on the south shore.  Hopefully that 2" of ice was smooth and doesn't hold any snow with the high winds.  How much snow did you guys get?

We got about a foot of snow. And there is not much for smooth ice out there, also a lot of open water yet on Sunday.

Thanks JB.  Sounds like we might be fishing closer to the south shore than we'd like, but at least we should be good to go with sleds rather than wheelers.  Any relevant updates are very much appreciated.  Thanks everyone.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
