The following is a small update; a more expansive ice check will be done tomorrow when temperatures are more bearable.
We just got off the lake to get you an ice update. With today’s extreme cold, this was more of a checkup- not a full ice examination. We are finding 8-11 1/2” in Waconia bay and the Walleye hole. The Cemetery Reef area had 7 ½”- 10”.
We plowed a large area in front of our Marina with our ATV. The plowed area had 10 ½-13” of solid ice. These extreme cold temps have been wonderful, but the ice isn’t as thick as it would have been had we avoided the 5” of insulating snow we have on the majority of the lake.
Check back here tomorrow afternoon for more info and have a Happy New Year!
