WARNING! Lake level rising. Pardeeville (emergency) opening dam to let 3ft out of Park Lake. Already had open water around shore due to thaw runnoff, used boards to get on this evening. Wanting to get names, numbers from few shacks left on lake. Turned around to get off right away. Was almost dark and didn't feel like blind run to both ends. Was gone last 5 days so, unsure what temps & rain did here.


Expect level to rise next 3 days. Ice at east end may eat from underneath? Buckle from Country Club point to south never did feeze solid, may open? Other cracks, holes may open?

Strange ice formation along south side, west of narrows in corner before last 2 houses. Large, smooth dome. Heaved up by pressure? Or was it left over snowdrift? Rest of lake smooth, hard. This just crust, breaks if stepped on. A foot or two high at center. Has big cut through middle where snowmobile crossed. The track is all boken blocks and shards of ice, refrozen slush, looks like lot of water was under top layers. Snowmo must have been going fast to make it through. And for sure the rider needed fresh undees after that surprize.

Yesterday, 4 of us put flags over or near weeds for norts and jigged 20fow for perch.  Little kid got 1 nice perch, lost a few, I released small stuff. While 20ft away the teenagers quietly piled up big gills and nice fat perch. Wonderd why the wouldn't unzip tent for the little kid, kept telling her to go away, leave them alone. Too busy catching fish to show up the "old guide". HAH

Fri, was cloudy, partner landed several wiskertrout up to 27". Sat sunny, high press, slow fishn but a few hits, 1 lost. Today more nice blue sky, active blips on screen that wouldn't hook up (gills? perch?) few flags, minnow robbers. Moved to deep later afternoon-darkthirty, one more cat.


Downward buckle from Country Club point goes straight toward south shore is not froze solid. Drilled a few spots on north end (with a big guy standing by with rope and float) , didnt go too far out finding 2-3" ice then water, more ice under that. Snowmobiles crossed it, may hold atv? or on foot? But, some are driving full size vehicles on east end. Better hug shallows on south to head west till past. Not easy to see.
