Rained pretty hard most of the day today but the evening the temps started dropping and we are now at 22f.  If nothing else the cold rain is dropping the temps of the water and should start freezing really good soon.

Here are a couple scouting pictures, from Wednesday.  First time posting pics, might take a couple tries so bear with me.




Yes, these were my first steps on the ice this year. It's still unsafe, but was able to creep 5-10 feet from shore.  After today and tonight's cold, it'll be ready in no time! ;)

Yeah I got it packed, not sure about the battery though.  Monday will be the test day for everything.

adkman- no... honestly don't know that lake.  It's just a place I stumbled on last year by accident- small lake, high elevation but sheltered from sun and winds.

u will need a foot of ice on that body of water if u say where it is because there will be thousands of desperate ice addicts walking on it myself included ;). thats awesome. my gramps pond is froze over and the black lab walked across it at some point today. hopefully this weather trend keeps up maybe we will have a normal winter. the ice watch begins. 8)

The ice is starting to form pretty nicely. The temps on the water is staying below freezing and out from shore about 50 feet except where there is some wind and current.  I know everybody is anxious to get out there and do some fishing, but remember it is still early and conditions can change from place to place fot to foot. 
PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL

Are you saying that you were ice fishing recently....on 3.5-5 inch's of ice ??? I'm guessing if the answer is yes that it had to have been in the Adks. You don't need to tell me exactly where but it would certainly help me know some basics so that I can confirm my hotel reservation in the Adks for this weekend ;D
