Waiting for ice.  It is trying to freeze but, too much wind. Calm areas skimming over today. East of CC is 50% filmed over now.

Ponds, shallow lakes, ice covered yesterday in morning as they have been many days for weeks, even Swan has had shore ice few times. Melts by afternoon. By next weekend, depending on wind, may be froze? Doubt safe to venture beyond knee deep on Swan but, small lakes may be good. At least ice skating on ponds possible. New shack nearly ready to wheel to landing so be ready to launch.

Dragged cpl big suckers while casting big jerk bait half the afternoon till dark. No action. Less than month ago water near 70deg, now 45. That is a fast drop for Swan. The 70deg temps were the whole top 20fow. Lot of dead shad (they can't stand rapid temp changes)  kept the gulls busy last couple weeks. Assume gamefish also feasted on them so, are full.

Should be at east end tossing big wood, where waves crashing right now. Saw globs bluegreen alga yesterday, surface temp 57, wind waves making foam, indicating fresh phosphorous from stagnant bottom water mixing. Wind waves put fresh oxygen in the top player so that's where the big fish should be.
