Checked Brewster Beach the last two mornings. Sad. Only about a half inch maybe an inch.  Two whacks with the spud and that's it. Spider webbed as I tried to walk on it.

Along w/ a bunch of other spots, I checked Brewster Beach on Sunday & it was wide open.  Wind was keeping it from freezing.  My guess is that the water was super chilled & as soon as the wind cut out, it started to freeze up.  So, I would say we are making some ice - some progress is good given the conditions...

Also, if you check forecast for next 2 wks, cold overnight lows will help build up ice.  Just need to get thru this weekend.  Personally, I plan on staying off the ice Sat - may get out Sun or Mon.  Going to be post-front conditions Sun + Mon, windy + rising pressure, so not my favorite for fishing.

Agreed.  Thinking about Sunday but probably not.  Hate the wind.

Work is making us take Monday off this year. Not my favorite conditions either, but I should be out there.
