Froze over last night. 400 acre windowpane, too thin to step on, too much to run boat...

Yesterday all open, not even a speck of ice along shore anywhere that I could see. Launch was open but, with temp in teens last night-today and waves? Could be icy on concrete ramp? Bring some sand or pea gravel.

Some mush piled along shore N & far E end, little mush still floating by in huge whitecaps. One patch remains in front of Boat Club where sheltered from waves a bit. Likely that gone by morning.

ice is a floating carpet of potholes and slush, ice out would think be this weekend or early next week with the warm day we had yesterday and the amount of wind and rain last night.

Breaking thru thin ice, is like 10000 needles going thru your body at once, then having to walk back to shore while clothes freeze up. It's an unbelievable experience & simply not worth a fish!

Lunker, with record warmth, sun, wind, last couple weeks, more warm sun? won't take long. Can't name a day but, since 1 week ago, can not even step on with long plank. 8days ago used canoe to get out 50ft then could walk until noon when the remaining 8" ice got squishy. Big open cracks 1/2 mile long  opened up out in middle because all open along shore so wind moving loose ice sheet. Few nights in 20s skim it over but, not solid anywhere. Long range forecast?=it's done. Packing gear to head NW where still 27-33" solid ice on lakes with fish biting. If not for babysitting and scheduled meetings would have been on road a week ago, not coming back till April....in meantime, starting to build new shanty for next winter, old one in peices wating for a match.
