The Ice is Breaking Up!by Capt Juls on 02/22/21
I just wanted to let all of you out of staters looking to come over soon, that the ice is breaking up!
The latest satellite picture from yesterday shows big cracks opening up in the Western Basin (west side of the islands) and really broken up ice and open water east of Kelly's.
With the warmer temps this week, and big SSW winds forecast for the next few days, we might see a lot more open water west of the islands later this week. The winds will break off chunks of ice and blow it away from this side of the lake.
The temps will be above freezing most of the week and hit a high of almost 50 next weekend. I don't think we're out of the winter mode yet though, but I doubt very much that any more ice will be forming on the lake as we head into March. :)
I'm just 4 weeks away from the first scheduled trips, so hopefully, it will be all open water by then. Fingers crossed!
