Ahhh, boats and speed. No accident would ever happen like this if we all had 5hp motors! smirk.gif

It's something how those great big, noisy barges can just creep up on you wink.gif

I wish there were more details on how it happened.

Maybe they were going to fast around moccasin point...Thats where I usually see the barge docked.

Andersons have two barges on the lake. One on the east end and one on the west end...

      Hard to imagine an ice-out anytime before the month of May with that 10-day forecast and how much ice/snow still exists on the lake.  If ice out happens just prior to the opener, I do feel like that could be a good thing for the overall bite.  Let’s hope that is the outcome here and not an opener where we are ice fishing.   Remember the ice out date in 2012?  April 2nd...  Amazing to think it was ever that early!   Jeff and I will be up this weekend, retrieving our boats from winter storage and chasing some whitefish, Tullies, jumbo perch, and maybe even a crappie or two.  The bite for all species is usually really good this time of year so we’re looking forward to that.

      It's my favorite time of the year, looking at the forecast and trying to figure out when the lake will truly begin its annual change. Daytime highs will be above freezing 8 of the next 10 days with refreezing at night. Maybe 7-8 inches of snow next week, but that precipitation forecast is too far off to be accurate. It's slightly more reliable than my prediction of a hurricane hitting the lake! I do see sun forecasted for 5 of 10 days with temps above freezing. The sun is starting to get pretty strong even when air temps aren't that high. If that snow doesn't hit mid-week, I could see a portion of the snowpack melting.   I'm heading up tomorrow to *inspect* the lake in person

      Below zero lows...we are going the wrong way.  Not looking real good at the moment for an ice free opener. Things can go fast like last year with a handful of very warm days, but we better start making progress soon.

      I noticed something in the pictures of the fish in my previous post that show up on my phone but not here. The little icon in the lower right. When I touch it, up pops the email of the author of the newspaper article that the phone detected. Maybe the phone is too smart!!😜
