Was wonderin :scratch: why there were 4 sometimes & 9 or 10 others. :cool: Thought that was a lot of $ to have tied up in wheelhouses that were out on the ice but not being rented out.

On the way into GR today there were still 3 smaller wheelhouses & 3 more rigs pullin sleds or wheelers headed north on Hwy 46 about 8:30-9. Found open water on both sides of the Hwy 46/Cutfoot/Mosomo Pt bridge that wasn't there last week. Quite a bit more on both sides of the Pokegama Dam that is west of GR along Hwy 2 as well. Last week there wasn't any on the east  side of the dam

Had somebody out on the bay early yday, looked to me like he walked out from the other shore. He came back out after a bit with some others & they were on sleds. They were out until about lunch time & then again about 3:30-4. Looked like there was some activity over on Bowstring too as the wheelhouses out in front of Trails End were on the move. It seems like we've had our snow here melt and/or settle maybe 4-5". We've got some yard showing on the north side of the kitchen, wait until 4 straight days in the 40's that are predicted for the end of this coming. week

Nope, but they did mention hearing about a couple sleds goin through the ice on a river or 2 in the area. Seen 1 in drive off Co Rd 35 yday, as we were coming back, that must've had some recent action & it looked to be pretty muddy. Our road & drive is starting to get greasy in a few spots, wait 'till the end of the week. :mad1:

I don't think getting in to your place will be much trouble as we've lost quite a bit of the snow & the ground will be froze for a while. Getting around on the lake is going to be another story though, I think. I pulled our sled off the lake after the last snow of the week we got >2', that was 2/26. The only ones I've seen out on the bay since then are sleds or wheelers with tracks on them.

Heard from a lady from Illinois that has a place over on the NW corner of the boot( off Co Rd 155) & was coming up last Monday. She wanted to know about the snow left too, Because of the storm last weekend she didn't get up here until Wednesday. She said that about the only trouble traveling she had was the 3' of snow at the end of her drive. I think she hadn't been up since December & was only driving a small car. So, I would think you'd be OK with the company car, glenn

Seen that on WCCO this morning too. Bet we've lost more than 1/2 our snow in the last 2-3 days, & 2/3 to 3/4 of what we had when we came up on 4/3. The puddles of standing water have started disappearing as well, warmer temps & with the wind today things are drying out quickly. With the low water levels from last year it wouldn't take much to look like California does sometimes. Bet we are getting close to 1' of good clear ice out here but Tim over at the store said his boys were over on Bowstring yday & bottomed out their auger in some spots. Thought we seen a small truck out there today on our way to get the paper. The Co Rd 35 access is getting very close to unusable, the 1 over by us was much better. Geiger's has had their plow truck parked on their ramp blocking it for 2 weeks, if not longer.

Just got back from the north land. There were two full size trucks drove out on Bowstring Saturday, I had to put my extension on my Ion to reach through the ice. It is starting to come up in chunks so it should start melting down fast now. Fished two smaller lakes and not as much ice but still a lot considering the time of year it is. Fishing was pretty good and I did manage a 10 3/4" and a 10 1/8" sunfish. Also had a few crappies over 12". Had a lot of eater size we kept so a good finish to the ice season.       :happy1:

And the best part Glenn was I found a full beer on the lake. It was partially covered with slush from where two guys  were fishing the day before. There loss was my gain. It was a good trip, shirtsleeve fishing weather and the fish bit. And free beer.      ;)

Looked to us yday that both the PA's on our end are going fast. Brother said there was 1 guy over at the north access that even left his wheeler on shore & walked out. Only 1 truck down at the NW 1 & it looked like he had 5-10' of water along shore & then another 15-20' of some pretty deep slush to deal with when he put in. Wonder :scratch: what it was like coming off the ice.

The webcam at Williams Narrows shows ice on both sides of their channel. Bet the open water along our shore has more than doubled(~ 30' now) in the last day or so though. I haven't heard any noises like the ice is movin here yet though.
