Looks like we are in for a warm up starting today. Tomorrow its saying 36 and rain and 35 and light rain on Saturday. My brother-in-law is scared that the ice will become unsafe but in my experience it usually takes 4 or five days of heavy rain and 40 degree temps to melt 8 inches of solid blue ice. Plus some of the snow helps to keep the ice longer when it is raining. What are some other thoughts on this? I'd like to hear from you guys but really don't want to hear how I'm crazy for ice fishing in the rain. I've done it every year and never had a problem when its early in the year. Let's hear some thoughts on this.
