As of April 25th, there is 32 inches of ice on the lake. The snow on top has turned to slush and travel in ANYTHING is difficult at best. There is large pools of water under the remaining slush. The ice hasn't honeycombed, so the water has no way to get through the ice. At the current highs and lows, this honeycombing is about a week and a half or so out.
Once this is done, it'll be about two weeks before the 32 inches will be gone.
My prediction from the end of February is May 20th.

The latest ice out ever.

Viva global warming!


Hey there F-N-P!!

Predicting a record, eh? Looks good to me. I'm not booked until the following weekend.

Mille Lacs and the Central MN lakes must have had far more snow cover on them the past few weeks if the report is new white slush and no honeycombing of the ice. I drilled plenty of holes on Cass on sunday the 22nd, might have had 30 inches of ice but it was NOT good ice. i booted the ice down 6-7 inches alone with my foot. We also havent had snow on the lake in well over a week, maybe even two. I have renewed hope that we will come down to the last day of two before opener, maybe even day of, to see ice out.
--- side note, once that ice takes in water, we've seen well over 12" of waterlogged ice vanish in the winds in a matter of hours. Have hope!

The view from Lyback's is grim. Take a look at Red Door and Appledorn's webcam. Looks a lot different. I still believe there's a chance we'll see open water. It can happen real quick assuming we get some rain and wind which are both in the forecast for early next week. Keep fingers crossed!!

Not having ANYTHING mess up our spawning cycle (including the electro fishing the idiots do) is going to make for another good hatch.
The thing I'm worried about now is they'll be eating their tails..........

Went out at Garrison last Saturday-28" of ice and about 1" of snow. The top was starting to hold water about 4" down. With a couple good rains, my guess is ice out will be May 12.
Good Luck everyone!
