Ice out update: May 17, 2014 “Opening Day”



Opening day, 2014, refers to the daffodils and not to the ice situation.  As of 5:00 pm we are down to roughly 40% of Vermilion Bay with a floating ice pack.  The Walleye Highway has become accessible this afternoon….although a switch in the wind might leave you camping out overnight!  Tomorrow or Monday at the latest will see the end of the ice…….stay tuned for the winner of the ice out contest.  I was predicting May 15th….a bit optimistic.


….meanwhile the horseshoe pits get a workout by the Martinson gang.

  1. I may not win the Ice Out contest…but here’s hoping I win the timing game for coming up the week after opener!
    Good luck this week one and all!
    See you Saturday!!

Thank you very much for making my get a way week so enjoyable. Dan and I had a great time. You and Susanne should be commended on how clean and well maintained your cabins and lodge are. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking to go to Canada fishing and I look forward to the time I can come back.
