Here is the way it stands as of today. The wider part of the lake has about the middle third still open from about Two Mile bar north to Crow point and then across over towards Moon Bar. Miller bay is completely iced over but probably not walkable yet. There is still open water on the south side of Battle point and with the wind today that area started to spread north of there to where it had previously been frozen for the last two days. From there it is ice until a little ways east of Coon point where it opens back up again and stays open to about a third of a mile from the narrows. Manthey's Bay is totally iced over but still a little thin. Talked to a guy that just came off of there this morning when I got there and he said it's almost three inches. I tried going out this afternoon from my place. Had four inches near shore but was down to about 2 and a half inches about 50 yards out.

Hey Retired,

Do you have any updates on the ice? I'm looking to head out there this weekend.

Don't know yet what the snow we got has done to the ice. Haven't gotten out yet. Snowblower and Polaris Ranger wouldn't start yesterday so couldn't blow or plow. Finally got the blower going late yesterday and got the blowing done. Worked on the Ranger today and got that started late this afternoon. I know they are going out on Manthey's Bay but heard there is a lot of water on top of the ice under the snow. Hoping to give it a try out from my place tomorrow.

Let me know how it goes. I think we will head out Friday and check it out. It should get cold again tonight. Hopefully that helps and if there is enough ice we can plow some roads.

Here is todays report. People going out on Manthey's Bay and a few other areas including Schultz's Bay. Seen a couple atvs's out and one snowmobile. Two guys pulled a couple small skid houses out onto the Northwest corner of Schultz's Bay with a utv. I went out from my place and found these conditions. Probably about the same where you are since we aren't that far apart. The first 100 feet there was a lot of water on the ice and really slushy with five and a half inches of ice under it. After that the slop slowly tapered off until about 150 feet out there was just snow, about four to five inches, on top of the ice and no slush or water. Had six and a half inches of nice clear ice under the snow for as far out as I went which was maybe 200 yards. I'm going to give the slushy stuff a couple of days to harden up. If it doesn't then I will just plow the whole mess way over to one side.

That's good news. See you out there on Friday. Let me know if you need a hand with anything. We will probably plow a couple roads right away so we can get some more ice for the Kubota.
