The Lake has changed dramatically since the last report. We have gone from flat and smooth conditions to a lot of snow that you can ride on.
There is 12" - 16" of ice out there.
On Top of that is about 8" of slush and water.
On top of that is about an inch of ice as it begins to re-freeze.
So, Amazingly it is pretty good riding out there.
That being said, there are a lot of pressure ridges.As of Friday Night:
- 3 Ridges between Lanzi's on the Lake and Wally's.
- 1 Ridge Going from Beacon Island toward Scout Island, it goes almost all the way to Broadalbin.
- 1 Ridge forming at the top of SinClair Point going towards Fishouse.
IT IS SAFER TO GO SLOW.
The Ice is Good, and you need to keep your wits about you to avoid pressure ridges.
Fishing:Walleye are hitting good still
Northerns are coming in at about 30"
Perch are quite large
There is no report on Trout at this time
