How is the ice looking in the marcel area?
Will the lakes be ice free by the 24th?

The ice is pulling away from the shorelines, but it will be nip and tuck for the ice to be out next week. If we get some good, hard rain and some really warm weather, it's a possibility.

We are 7 miles north of Marcell. Our lake is about 70% ice free (the most shallow area) and will be out by days end with a little wind/rain. Big Turtle is pulling away from the edge but still lots of ice. Will post more as I see changes.

Horseshoe (North of Marcell). Talked to a friend of mine that lives a mile south of Bigfork and the ice went out of his lake yesterday, Horseshoe was clear of ice this A.M. Will check Big Island later in the week and let you know.

Big Fisherman,

Does Dave Gilgenbach still live out there on Horshoe? He built our cabin, heck of a nice guy.

I will be coming up this weekend and hoping to put the boat in the water. Big Island has an average depth of about 25-20 feet or less and is about 240 acres. Does anyone think the Ice will be off by saturday? Are most of the lakes opening up this week? I am very impatient and can not wait to get my boat wet.

BigIsland, the ice is off. You should have no problems. Big Turtle is ice free also (at least on the north end.)

Ben, we purchased Dave Gilgenbach's house on Horseshoe a year ago this past February. We moved up here full time in July of last year. Enjoying every day - Dave does build a nice house. Stop over sometime.

Ben, we were on Portage Lake off the SE arm of Sand, just across the road from Lakewood Lodge. Were there for 15 years. Originally from Iowa, retired up here last summer from Ankeny. Previously lived in Carroll. Let us know when you're coming up and we can get together. Still fish Sand, good lake to bring the grandkids, always something biting.

Lot of Hawkeye and Cyclone fans in our area up here on Turtle and surrounding lakes. I think we outnumber the Gopher fans, at least last year couldn't get anyone to take a friendly wager on the Hawkeye/Gopher football game.

Let me know your e-mail address if you want to keep in touch.

Have a good one.
