Careful out there, boys and girls. Lots of large open water areas south of Carcajou. I can only assume that it’s caused by the high water and swift current. If it skims over and with the blowing snow, someone could get into trouble.
MOON PHASE (45%)
Is it the Janesville damn that is causing water levels to be this high? I heard that they were going to remove one... but water this high this late is making spring look bad with lots of no wakes which is now back w the lake above 8 ft

Put the boat in at Newville yesterday . First time I had the boat in Jan. Tried drifting with minnows for a while. Zip. The way it looked from the boat, it`s open all most from the Bluff to Highwood. Christmas day was the last time we were on the ice. Crossing seams the ice would sink on both sides as you crossed. Did manage a few panfish. T-2-T
