Warmup Coming
« on: Jan 09, 2017, 04:47 PM »
Anyone watching the 10 or 15 day forecast for Northern Indiana? I don't see real cold in the next 15 days. How do you think the ice will hold?

just ignore the forecast, if you don't pay attention to it, it may not happen.

With the night time temps, the ice will be fine.

With the forecast rains, I'd be more concerned with the edges and the skimmed over or open water.

With the exception of Thursday it looks like we are going to finally enjoy some nice fishing weather. Ice isn't going away with this little bit of rain and short warmup.

1 inch of water on top of 5 inches of ice down here. The wind is blowing 25 miles an hour with gusts well into the 30's. By 4 pm they are expecting high 40 mph gusts.
Going to have to anchor the shanty tonight for what will more than likely be my last outing for a while.
Did manage a 13 inch crappie last night but the eye's are off doing whatever they do when I'm not catching them! :wacko:

With 10" of ice on some of these northern lakes a couple days in the high forties and a little rain is not going to be the end or even close.

I was on loomis and the Slough today. loomis had lots of water but drilled fine. Slough had a LOT of water on top and unbelievable wind. shanty was pushing a serious wake on the way in. it was not drilling good, ice was coming up in small chunks not shavings. I'm done for a while. I did take a sweet ride on the shanty that I have on video. I could have easily rode to the opposite bank.

forecast keeps trending warmer...now most of next week is mid 40's and above freezing at night. Hopefully it holds for the back half of January, the extended looks good.
