Iím almost sure the main lake is wide open in the south basin
Goin' where the wind don't blow so strange,
Maybe off on some high cold mountain chain.

The diamond point cam is pretty cool- in yesterdays (4/9) time lapse video you can watch the ice melt and break apart throughout the day. Today its open water.

Steel pier looks like all the ice blew to the south end of the lake. Im hoping Thursday and Friday melt it off, would like to do some trolling Saturday

Can't say for sure but i would guess its mostly open by now. I was out on NW bay on the 1st and it lost 4-5" of ice in a few hours while i was out. With the temps where they have been, and the rain this past weekend, id be shocked to see ice out there still

Looking at the satellite from yesterday it looks like the very north end still has ice but other than that it is wide open.

Brand new How-To video going up at 7pm tonight from Roger Houck out of Brant Lake NY on the Roger's Rigs Youtube Channel.  Roger shows how he prepares those grease chickens for the oven and the smoker.  They can make a great meal.  Come check it out!

A lot of places but as with any lake, some access is ready before others. MDB, Hearthstone and Fort Anne beach (pilots knob) are a few.

Obviously I was kidding. But i am getting a strong itch to walk on water again. If anyone has any tips on good early ice opportunities in the region please let me know. I was thinking/hoping the saranac lake area might get ice by early December?  Iím way down in Jersey so donít know when they lock up up there. Thankful for this group to keep me posted.

Shouldnít be too long with this cold weather. I was wrapping boats in the Adks yesterday. They had snow on the ground and a few small ponds locked up !

I hate good cold like this it's too early for LG. 46+- right now and this will cool her down a little bit but not like a good -14 in early January.

Early Nov cold sets up the lakes for an early freeze.

Looking for recommendations on a bait caster set up, something around 28-30" for fishing in my smaller shack. What setups do you lake trout experts use?
