    Anyone check out the ice at the daysail yet? Is there actually ice there yet? Lol

    this seasons been pretty rough besides going up north and hitting those lakes. Had to make the drive up to the raft these past few weekends. It’s been hit or miss each trip.

    Oh poor bill hang in there my friend

    Maybe we could all come together and just build a 300 yard by 200 yard wooden raft. Sit over the whales year round

    I watched the wind completely destroy ice I was on that same morning.
    In about 45 mins it was all gone. Crazy what wind and waves can do. Stay safe

    It's hard to imagine no ice at the day sail. That stinks. Anyone have info about the crocker launch?

    Its doesn't stay cold enough, long enough to make any decent main lake ice this year. The winds certainly aren't helping any either. Seems if it does get cold enough for a few days/nights, then there are 40 degree days right behind it and the days are getting longer, nights are getting shorter with every passing day.

    Any East or South wind will destroy what formed

    Hate to say it guys but I don’t see any main lake ice for you this year , the wind is going to destroy any progress it made today and it’s looking like 40s again by next weekend . I’ll just keep tinkering with the boat
