Thanks for update, its very tempting to get out,but knowing my luck thats exactly what would happen.....lol guess I'll wait it out
I drove around the lake today to check out the launches and see how fast the ice was going and stopped by Fontana boat launch and lucky enough the ice stops just to the south side of the launch so you can launch there the only downside would be is if the wind shifted out of the south and blue that Ice sheet in front of the launch when you want to leave ??
Muskie Fontana should be open by tues or wed! it was real black slush off the west end but only like 50-100yrds of it and the rest of that side is open! a little wind and a couple of days and it should be clear! lol I know I will be trying to get out!
Pinboy I could have sworn I heard some big boats racing around or being worked on on the open side of the lake today! lol not sure if they put in by the Sailing academy or what but definitely sounded like some ski boats, wake boarding boats or even some speed boats lol they are chomping at the open water bit I guess as well :O
