Careful out there
« on: Mar 03, 2019, 12:53 PM »
Went out on Long Lake (Valpo) this morning for a few hours.  Ice was 4 1/2 inches or so until I got about 100 yards NE of from the boat ramp.  One week and two good spud hits to water.  Figured I'd let ya'll know.

Most the ice I found on long last night was 3.25-4” didn’t find much over 4” but it was making ice

Strong westerly winds pushed the water to the east. The water must find a path to equilibrium. It returns west somewhere. On Syracuse Lake it is open to the east and south shores with area eroded in between - somewhere. Be careful is the word.
On Wawasee the north shore is open and some fishable spots are questionable at best. Ice is eroding from below. Take a buddy, safety rope, spuds,life jacket, whatever you have. Don't go alone, don't walk together.
