Yeah well you can have your snow once all the lakes lock up and get a good 3-6 inches of beautiful hard black ice.

That forecast seems good :tipup: I do have a question though since I'm not an expert on lakes freezing over...Are freezing temps at night and above freezing during the day enough to form ice ??? Lets say its 12 hours above and 12 hours below freezing is that enough to ice ???

i would think it depends on how far below and above freezing you are talking. probably need to have it below freezing the whole time 'cause if it's just a skim then there's not much of a buffer.

Also depends greatly on the temp of the lake and if there is any wind. If the lake is 45 there is no way you are going to create ice even if the temp is 20.

All these nice cold temps are great but lets just hope it's still cold when it counts for some good ice making. I was sick last year when it was 70 in January and the only ice near my house was in my freezer.

People should start posting water temps in addition to weather forecasts.   :tipup:

I woke up to 18 this morning at deer camp. But alas no snow and no deer I gotta hang one before the ice comes. I really dont want to hang my tail between my legs and shoot one in the southern zone. But what the hell im a meat hunter not a horn hunter. Nothing can beat taking an Adirondack buck though.
ALRIGHT ALRIGHT!!
