 :scratch: Lakewood's dock looks like it almost disappeared overnight & it's still coming down. TWC sayin they could get another 3-5" too. Can't see much at the narrows or geiger's right now.

So why does a storm put an end to spearing plans?

(I don't know dittly-squat about spearing.)

its more about saftey.........and right now......if they get more snow....its gonna be all about water/slush on top of the ice. i've been down that road more then once......and as i age......i'd like to think i've learned a few things!!!!!!

at this point i will be going up by myself. i put feelers out over a week ago if someone wanted to join me and havent heard anything back!!!!! the 2 lakes i wanted to hit first, one is down a minimum maintenance road, the other is off Hwy 6 but he access isnt plowed............

being christmas week.....i'd suspect some people around.......but not enough if i run into issues!!!!!!!!

It's definitely what I would have called heart attack snow when I was a paramedic just due to the effort it takes to shovel it. I'm not fishing today or tomorrow. Spent a few hours helping a buddy shovel off his garage roof. Definitely see some grey areas on a few lakes, definitely going to be some slush

Good morning.   Gee more snow up here.  I too am a bit worried about our ice.  Out front here I had 8" of good ice before this snow but I am expecting a lot of slush now.   I just might be sled fishing for a while.

Geaigers posted and said there is 8" of slush on Bowstring. They closed their access until it firms up.

Just got off the phone with our guy that plows us out. He figures they got 12-14 inches of snow. Said bit was so wet water was running out of rain gutters. And he still wasn't done plowing
