Special Ice Out Update…April 20th and the muskies are on the move!

Here’s a few shots of what is happening at 5:00 p.m. on April 20th.

A drastic change has occurred with a bit of wind from the north.  What ice remains is moving south……along with my swimming raft!  Time to throw a boat in the water and go on a rescue mission.

Say, what is this I spy down by the docks!  No, not a beaver……

Good for you for correctly guessing a “musky”.  Note the white scar on the head…  Now off to rescue the raft.

All’s well that ends well.  What will tomorrow bring?  Ice out??  Stay tuned….

  1. I’m looking forward you calling “Ice Out” on April 21!

    Wishing it wasn’t quite so early, but I know those Lakers will still be up in May…water can’t warm up that much!
