Dakins Lake?
« on: Jan 01, 2019, 09:06 PM »
Has anyone been out to Dakins Lake in Zearing or heard what the ice thickness is?
I have never fished it and was thinking about giving it a try. Any advice would be appreciated!

I drove up last weekend from an hour south and was very disappointed to see open water and no one on the ice.

I am also curious on this spot. I try to get there each year.  Last two times I drove past this lake, there was not safe ice, but it has been a while.

Still not safe... checked it this morning!3 inches off the bank in the north east corner. all of the trees look like they were in open water a couple days ago.
