Just drove past there today. There is a person out in a portable on the west side. I do not know of the ice condition but there were still pockets of open water all the way up the west side two days ago. I definitely want to get out there soon like most but I don't think the ice thickness is consistent but I do think it would be dangerous

Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

Went out this afternoon for the first time and the lake is looking good, out to Shermans and found 12-13" of good clear ice. Not really any large cracks and a good 4" of snow was perfect for the sled.

Fishing was not as good, one 23" era on a buckshot tipped with wax worms.

got to the lake found I forgot my hitch and helmet, man was that a cold ride out and back in.

I'm up by Myr Mar, and we had about 10'' on Tuesday.  I imagine there's a bit more by now (Friday night).  I did see one truck drive out of Myr Mar this morning, but that's the only large vehicle I've seen....everything else has been wheelers and sleds.

      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!
