It’s quite uncanny that this year’s thick ice now looks like it’s on its last legs...Mother Nature plays by her own rules. I predict an ice out in the next 7-10 days. Of course, the “traditional” ice out is declared when the Mount can run its normal route.
Yes definitely by her own rules, the lake I walked out on just a week ago had 30 yards of open shore,like I said in my post, it had lost 10" in a week , but still was 15 solid and 5 or so corn, this time of year, it gets worked on from both sides...at least up north you don't get sea breezes, yesterday it went from mid 60's to low 40s with a wind shift on shore..brrrrrrr.

cool post on the historic dates...if you look at it and average all of them out, ironically we are basically right on pace or average...right around the week of the 21st April it seems...despite me feeling like this was some of the nest ice (up north) that I've seen since I can remember...still looks like ice out  will be just about on point. either way, hit the res this past weekend and we managed 8 Lakers and a nice salmon...so, looking forward to open water in front of my house soon.

Another update, as of Sunday 7th: Turkey is a strong sneeze from going out. Hopkinton/Elm Brook/Stumpfield is entirely open (no idea if the gate's unlocked), Gregg still had a week left, unless the wind gets up. Merrimack river in Concord was 41 in the main flow, 45 in the oxbow and 49 (at about 4:00) in the backwater. The gods smiled, and I got 7 LM to 2.25#.

No going back now! The bays and protected areas have the gray ice Which will be blowing down the lake soon! Look for the Emerson Aviation report soon!

Not a pothead here but I’ll go with the over-used “420”  ;D
Remember...official ice out is not until declared by Emerson Aviation!

Ice is out in the broads and moving very fast through the Weirs channel according to bookface.

Roccus may be right on the money?
Ice is all broke up and blowing whichever way the wind does.
This morning, it was in Wolfeboro.  ;)
