Phil Pick.. Nope. Not trying to scare anyone away. More like trying to prevent someone from going swimming with the snow cover. Snow insulates you know. And with only an inch or two of ice before the snow fell. How much do you think its going to thicken up by? Just saying. Ive seen people go thru in the thin spots when there was 11" Ice all other places on the bay. You wanna blaze the path out? I'd be happy to follow. Me? not leading.
Oh, I'll add I'm NOT a gill fisherman. I'm only out with flags so my season will be a very short one IF I manage to get out. With Temps being many many degrees below zero this coming weekend in the AM's Not sure I"ll even venture out. I'm usually on ice before light and off by 11am. So, Just wait and see what happens.
