I'm sure by then you will be able to pull out with a half ton.

That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

Adrian's FB post said they are waiting for the bay to make more ice before they let any 1/2 tons with wheel houses out.  The issue is that it the lake and bay would handle 1 or 2 1/2 tons if they drove sensible but when you open it up, there will 25 of them bumper to bumper going across the bay.  That's what they have to plan for.

What about ice castle with an atv? I will have to look on the Facebook page. I know it has been colder up there than down  here.  It was 6 degrees this morning there. Hopefully it's good by New years weekend. Otherwise I will be going to red witch I don't really want to do.

Yes,,,, More house out that way then on the west side of Pine Island ,,, but more resorts using that ice road also ,,,, we went out of Bostic Bay 

BTW Cyrus Resort  so far is one of the best resorts we've stayed at for service, lodging, cleaning station, hospitality and location

Hopefully Adrian's updates there post soon. It says 11 to 13 Inches of ice. But that was on the 17th. Hopefully they will let half tons out next weekend with the cold weather coming in. Heading up next Saturday and bringing ice castle. And a four wheeler just in case.

I saw on Facebook that the bay had lost some ice during that warm snap and they were finding some 9 inch ice. Hopefully after this upcoming cold weekend things will firm up. Still pretty early in the game.

      I bought a Striker snowmobile jacket and bibs at the Red Rock store up the Fernberg about 8 years ago. Really like them!

      Daisy Bay today was much better today than 2 weeks ago, most of the slush pockets have firmed up.  Still a few around and off trail travel is a little to rough.  The staked trail is in good shape.

Ice fishen, truck rides in woods an just doing guy stuff. Really likes lil ice rink an learning how to be my left wing n take out a D Man. Fred Fred Bear enjoys his company 24/7 and true brother type pals. They are really tight as Fred Fred is a non stop wrestling foe and is teaching him the good an bad things he needs to know here Musky Acres to be a true Marauder. Be a fun spring when ice splits to introduce Max to the lake n island, boats, fishen an 4 sure dock jumping!!.   Mmmmm cooking Ribs, Chicken, made slaw, baked beans and cornbread for lil ice hackey tonight down the pond. Hounds agree with menu an everyone will grease out on the pak~ons an have fun. BURP! I always wanted to be Bobby Orr, my mind was willing but my A$$ never followed. At 63, legs need bit longer to adjust to what my mind is telling them to do, but its all fun.   Keep on rocken!   T

      I was out on the north end at the park last weekend. The ice was 15" measured. I drove out but the ice is heaved on the ramp itself making it difficult to get over. Even with a 4 wheel drive pickup I bottomed out. Panfishing  was Ok, kept a dozen of sunnies and crappies mixed.

      I ended up buying from Dennis Kirk. Likely will have to go by measurements though as I doubt the stock number will be found.

      My first suit was the Arctic Armor camo combo.  Loved the soft touch outer surface and the bibs were warm, but a little bulky.  Ended up really not liking the coat because it didn't have any options for ventilation under the arms or across the back.  I run hot and it didn't take much for me to sweat with that jacket and then end up being cold.    I sold that suit and made the switch to a Striker Climate coat and Hardwater bibs.  They've been fantastic.  Bibs are more comfortable and less bulky that the Arctic Armor bibs were.  Climate coat is a double win for me.  I wear the liner jacket most of the winter season as my daily winter coat.  The Climate shell has options for ventilation and has always been plenty warm enough for me without the liner as long as I properly layer for the temps.    Found a smoking deal on some camo pattern Striker bibs at the sport shop in Maple Lake this year that had less insulation that the Hardwater bibs, so I now have 2 options on bibs depending on temps.  Many of my friends and neighbors also took advantage of the sale in Maple Lake.  They might still have some options there, so could be worth a call.

      @ mistermojo   I doubt you can go wrong with any of the bigger name float suits out there.  They’ve come a long way since the first models hit the market.   Personally I’ve been extremely happy with anything Striker has put out.  The suits, hats, gloves, face masks, you name it.  All of their items are well thought out and very well constructed.  Pretty much everyone I know has gone to Striker for their first suits and have all been happy.
