We still have open water out on the central body of the lake easily seen on the web cam (click on the picture for a larger view) and on the “another webcam” extending into Bradleys bay. Nice to have both perspectives. Crawled out to the chains float, dressed in the Mustang floater suit, and sank the float under the ice. I found 2 inches of ice, measured, at the float which is about 36 feet from shore. Set the electric ice auger into the ice but with the mild temps not sure how long it will take to freeze in. Also some foot prints following the shore from a nocturnal traveler………….
