Thanks again for the updates. I just checked the webcam and it looks like we made some progress. The area that opened up yesterday is closed again. I wonder how far the ice was able to spread.

As of 4pm today:

-Dunham's Bay frozen out a couple hundred yards past the mouth
-hundred or so yards out in Basin Bay
-Huddle Bay frozen out to Clay Island, saw a portable shanty way back in the bay
-Sawmill bay frozen
Winds are dieing down, we'll see how far north the main lake buttons up by tomorrow morning.

Last year, right? - the ice pushed up on shore while we were out there and we had to wade through the water to get on shore. Seemed to be solid under the water, but it was quite scary.  Is there another way to get on in Huddle Bay without walking a mile?

Drove by the north end of the lake today on my way to brant, the thinnest of thin skims anywhere from 10-20 feet off shore on Indian Kettle, Freinds Points and Forest Bay.

We are coming up to Lake George next weekend.  Do you think the ice will be thick enough to fish?

I just got off of Basin Bay. Only about 2 1/2 inches of nice black ice out there. I had to stay toward the edge as it starts to thin out as you get to the center of the bay. Watch out for those bubblers if you head out, almost had a scary incident today trying to get off the ice between two docks with bubblers.

Also, caught a small (21") laker and had three other flags that I'm assuming were lakers, but we'll never know will we  :)?

Good fishing.

Just got back from fishing Huddle bay, went in at 6:30, left at 8:30. The ice was 2 1/2 inches thick and the fish weren't biting, the Very few we got we very small perch. We moved to Harris Bay where the ice was 3 1/2-4 inches. The fishing there was pretty good, there were more, but they weren't very big. We caught mostly perch, a couple sunnys and a pickeral. Where are all the big ones ???.Try again next weekend,hopefully find some bigger ones! ::)
