Nope, some open water out there, now. However, I would be surprised to see it out by the weekend. If it does go out by the weekend, its going to be blown out by the strong South East winds they are predicting. That might make the north side of the lake messy.

I think you are better off looking south 10-15 miles, where the ice is off, or almost off. LeHommeDue and Geneva will get the last of the ice off today. Minnewaska and Osakis are both open.

I hope Miltona will be early next week, maybe over the weekend, if we get some rain.

Don't worry, though, there are lots of chores to do, now that the snow is gone. Just stop by I can let you borrow a rake! grin.gif

Sounds like big wind coming. That should eat the ice of Miltona off.

You don't need to go to Miltona to catch slab crappies. They are bitting real well on some of the tiny lakes in the area already.

I am planning on pulling the boat up and putting it on the lift this weekend. Do you think that is going to happen?

East of the flats is all clear except for Tamerac Bay, which was full of ice, plus about 1/4 mile out from there, when I looked about 11:00 this morning. I would guess that the its all clear on the west side, except maybe by Johnson's RV Park, and maybe into Lucky Acres bay.

The wind is definitely piling the ice onto shore in the Sandy Beach area.

We went out Sat. and caught 4 slabbers. We got out to late though as they shut off soon after we got to our spot. Your right, the weather was beautiful!!!!

      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.

      Got a good tree for a stand? Haha

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!
