The ice has started to add up the last two days on Lake Osakis. It has made it's way from shore out to the end of the rushes. What bothers me is this persistent light snow we have been getting since early yesterday. Might slow the ice down a little if we get to much. Took a step out from shore and knocked a chunk of ice out with my spud bar. It was about 1 inch thick now. About 3/4 inch of good ice and about 1/4 inch of 'snice'(combination of frozen snow and ice) on top. I'm sure the ice that just formed last night is thinner. I think I will wait a couple more days and then drive around the lake to see how the rest of the lake is shaping up.
Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~ Chuck Clark
