Lonney here from Trophy Ice Fish, checked ice this morning around the Sturgeon Bay area and we have lift off !! with most bays froze up or "Glazed Over" hopefully the wind stays down and we start to get some accumulations of ice to build. ** Little Sturgeon - was completely froze over ! with steam coming from the main bay which is still open (starting to freeze) hopeful locks up in the next few days as well ! ** Riley's Bay - was also completely froze over with (chunk ice) and the main opening of Green Bay was steaming which I believe is still trying to lock up !! *** Sand Bay - was 2/3 froze up with with open water along the south shoreline which makes sense with the west ,northwest wind we're having waves moving in ! Couldn't really see out to Larsons Reef to much steam to see! *** Sturgeon Bay Cannel - Most portions were glazed over with the actually marked channel open due to tug boats still traveling due to big ships coming in to winter. ****** DIDN'T CHECK ICE THICKNESSES ,SO USE EXTREME CAUTION ALWAYS !!!!!!!!!! ****** Lets pray we don't get crazy winds and this snow coming on sunday doesn't screw up the ice we have started !! We could possibly be out SAFLY ice fishing in a few weeks permitting it stays cold !! Keep in mind that mother nature always has a mind of her own !! Lol. sharing a few photos from my excursion this morning !!
