Water is cold enough.
Air will be cold enough

Will the wind cooperate? Thatís the one.

I think the wind stops Saturday night. Then again, what do the weather men know anymore.
I might be being optimistic but if the wind dies like itís forecast to I think the main lake will lock up this weekend... maybe even tonight!

I like the view from the diamond point one... just have to be a little more patient for ice...

WNYT Weather has a live cam shot from Halls as well. Now if the wind doesn't break things up.

Wind forecast 4mph or less the next 3 days. Think we might have 4-6" ice entire lake for next weekend. :tipup:

I would be surprised if dome island/ pilots knob/ Phelps island stretch freezes.

As if today there is skim ice:
-Village area to about Tea Island, some small open spots...main lake wide open north from there
-Basin Bay about 3/4, open NE corner to main lake
-Huddle frozen to the islands, no bubblers at town dock yet, ice looked better than the Village
-Sawmill frozen out just past Green Island

Just moved to the the area and was really surprised to see no ice on the Lake ... is there a find a fishing buddy thread anywhere? Or is anyone looking for a buddy? If this is weird this post will self-destruct.  ;D

I would imagine.
Goin' where the wind don't blow so strange,
Maybe off on some high cold mountain chain.

Checked out LG this morning. Most of the bays are skimmed over. Still not thick enough. 2 in thick in most spots. Still some open water in the middle of Harris. MDB huddle and vets were skimmed over. Should be good next weekend in some of those

I'm so ready. All depends on conditions of course. Hate to sound like a downer but I keep hearing snow Friday, Saturday, Sunday next week. That sux as far as I'm concerned. Hard to walk, can't see under you, ECT..

Happy to hear the king is tightening up! Hopefully it builds ice fast this week. I saw a weather report for next next Sunday into Monday... possibly big snow event. Maybe weíll get lucky with a miss, but from what I read all 4 models used for tracking weather are showing a good hit to the northeast. I sure hope it tracks east.
