Let's get some activity on this board. The sun is getting stronger and the ice always breaks apart at some point. What's your guess for the great Vermilion Ice Out of 2019? The winner can stop by my dock for a cold beer this summer.

Did someone say....beer?? I'm in!! 4/20. I'm guessing it will be a lil bit early because of the snow cover. It prevented the ice from forming extra thick and all the water from the melted snow will honeycomb the ice faster. What kind of beer are we drinking?

You are on Black Bay, right?   Maybe a few losers will stop by...😀

There's a lot of ice out there, I drilled a couple holes yesterday one on a plowed road that was over 36" of ice and another that was off the plowed area that had 30", 

I'm optimistic so I'll guess April 27th.

April 21. Wouldn't be suprised if it went quicker. Warm temps look like they're here to stay. A small creek here on pike bay broke free today and in 2 hours really flooded out an area the size of a football field on the bay.

      Yah the Dam in cold spring is quite the site I stopped there and looked at it . Its gushing !!
    • smurfy
      I just drove by the chain and can second that!!!!!!! in cold spring there was a sheriffs deputy and a cold spring officer on the old railroad bridge. the deputy looked like he had some type of gadget in his hand. water was really pouring over that dam.  with the news that Antons got evacuated last nite with a full house i'm sure everyones on full flood alert!!!
    • IceHawk
      I would say its over around my area. We tried to get on numerous lakes yesterday with hip boots and broke through all the edges. still ice out there once you reach it but  Things are going fast. Water is riseing fast. the hwy 22 access is completely flooded and gaining elevation by the minute.  Might make a few Northwest runs yet but locally I wont be takeing the risk anymore been a weird year but honestly i'm ready for the long rods to come out!

      Sounds like several lakes are experiencing winter kills in the Wilmar area this year.  The extent of the kill isn't clear yet but Big Kandi has had some walleye mortality, Lillian appears to have had a significant die off with dead jumbo perch in the shallows, Kasota and Wakanda have a bunch of dead eyes showing up in creeks.  I'd be surprised if it isn't more wide spread than these lakes.

      We were gathering sap yesterday and it was almost knee deep. Areas getting more sun have a foot. Getting through the ditch was hell.
