I easily kicked through the edges on a 5 acre pond today and it hasn't even started raining.  Hate this time of year waaaaay more than early hard ice.

I was on 16 inches of ice this morning and was a lot of water on top. The edges were solid other than one spot that heaved and was opening up some. That wind was pretty tough out there but I survived. Caught a few too! Hex

If this snow hits as hard as forecast tomorrow and doesn't blow off, I think my season is done. I checked a couple ponds after work this afternoon, and popped right through the edges with one chisel whack.

Just came in from checking my pond and water is running in from everywhere. It looks like it might have come up about 3Ē overnight. I walked out on it and it seems to be fine. The edges are a little thin but those will tighten back up with the forecasted temps. It only had about 6Ē of ice at best before all this warm weather. Iím a little bit puzzled why this has a lot less ice then everything else Iíve been on. My geothermal does run into it but I canít believe that would make that much difference. The pond covers over 3 acres. Be careful out there!

Have no idea why but, ponds seem to never get the amount of ice that larger lakes/reservoirs do?? Also they are the first to melt most of the time.

Drive the atv tonight and still really good up here. Like lots of good clear ice down there!
Lack of planning on your part in NO way constitutes an EMERGENCY on mine
