I know it's kind of a dumb question but I hear there is 6 inches of ice at Burtis bay. Has anyone seen machines out there at all? Got a new one I'm dying to use, just don't want to die using it. Lol.

With these latest temps are you for real.  If you take that new machine out, there will probably be more structure on the bottom.

Just got home from south basin, yes there is maybe 1/2 inch of snow covering the ice. But the ice underneath it is extremely slick.

No. It was a mix of clear and white. More of the white.

When I checked Burris bay weather yesterday afternoon they got 10.5 inches and was expected to get a couple more last night! I'm planning to head there tomorrow so I wanted to know!

I live in Angola and we got around 10 inches here. I'm hoping a lot of the snow blew off the lake.

Don’t count on it. We just took a ride along the lake and it’s buried in pretty good. Can see some wet spots out there which is concerning. I would spud slowly of you go. If nothing else you’ll get a heart attack pulling your gear out. Saw a few Amish guys off Burtis. They looked miserable.
Tricking is easy. It’s the killing which is the hard part.
Get the gaf Sarah, this is going to be epic!

Maybe these cold temps will stiffen up the snow and make it easier walking. Thanks for the report.

Anybody know why they closed the boat ramp at Cassadaga in the fall or if the lot is being plowed now?

Someone crashed their boat into the launch and made it unsafe so they blocked it off is the last I knew.

I was fishing there 2 weeks ago. It don't restrict you getting your hut out there.

awesome - and thanks for the details.  Would have been an interesting thing to see someone hit that with enough speed to screw it up that much.
