It's been a few days since my last ice report so I will let you know what has been going on. We have had terrible weather... two days in a row (Tuesday & Wednesday) we woke up to snow! Both days the snow melted by the afternoon, but this weather certainly didn't us any favours as far as the ice conditions go! Having said that, there was just enough open water in front of Northern Lights Resort on Cedar Lake yesterday for my Dad to take off in his airplane. He was able to get a better look at the area and he has concluded (as of yesterday) that most lakes in our area are still about 70% ice covered. Cedar Lake is about 50% ice covered. The ice that is left is very thin and very black. We predict (and we really hope we are right) that the ice will be out by Saturday or Sunday on our lakes and most area lakes. The fly-in lakes up North will follow a few days later. Bring on open water fishing season!!
Until next time,
