March 7

Welcome to the first spring report.  A rather dramatic change today out on the lake.  A lot of water/slush is starting to show and the sun has heated the rocks enough to have the ice start pulling away.  The trail markers I could see from the dock have fallen over or are leaning.  I anticipate the markers will be picked up over the next couple of days before they have a chance to freeze in if the temperatures drops.  Over the weekend it looked like a 50/50 mix of quad or snowmobile.  Personally I think much after today the quad will be first choice.  Ice thickness has been reported as 18" to 24" in different areas of the lake.  Its early March so conditions can change.
