If it looks like water is it really????

Recommended Posts

my neighbor tells me he has seen no less than 5 boats out of Coffmens slam into ice this morning.You see there is a tiny bit of melt on top of the ice and it gives you the impression that it's that you can go flying up the clear glass like lake with no problems. HE said one of these nut was in a asks. Boats on full tilt. When he got out of the ice and started back to Coffmans beach he was taking water. any of you guys have any idea how fast you will last out there in that lake at it current temperature.

I would start drilling/cutting holes if the wind got crazy.  run chainsaws without bar oil if that worries you / turn chains around so they don't spit on you.

I worry more about a high wind and warm weather. Those monster chunks star to move they can do it a a surprising speed. When that happens all you can does hope your not in there direct path. There is just nothing will stop them. Yesterday morning there was waterontop off the ice and the lake being calm gave the impression  of open water. My advise is just stay off the water.

The 10-14" thick iceberg up here has almost lost it's grip on the shoreline.  If they start generating water that sucker is gonna start ripping docks to pieces.   I can't even imagine how much it weighs.  

I got home about a 2 Hrs ago wrench so I seen just how frozen up you are

I fished all weekend, ice was not an issue if you just drove smart.  I was actually surprised how much open water there was even a few miles into some of the arms.  Coffman, Shawnee, PB2, Alhonna all open as of Sat morning.  Fog delayed take off yesterday for Joe Bass for 90 min, Bass World said screw it and sent em out into the abyss at 7am.  Some real good bags brought in both days.  The 65* rain last night completely eliminated all ice in our cove, which I walked on and guessed at 5" thick 3 short days ago.

well  if you had come in at Coffman and attempted to go blasting up the gravois in what looked like calm water you would not have gotten as far as Cedar Point.There was some boats damage trying  that Satirday morning.  I will get my share I am not going to go out if there is a xhance of tearing up my boat.
