Ice on Spirit Lake

What's the ice look like?  Could we be looking at an early ice-out?  Thanks

After noon tomorrow, "forecasted" temps will not dip below freezing for the forseeable future!  :D

some edges froze back up in the last week and as of last night on a smaller lake in NW Iowa that I checked. 

Going to be windy on Sunday, and some rain and warm temps next week will hopefully finish them off and we can hit open water

Thanks for the update. That's what I'm hoping.  Trying to get down to Spirit that week before Walleye opener for some warm water bass fishing.  If it is a mid-March break-up, that gives it over a month to warm up before I get there.  SWEET!

The Okoboji webcams show bad ice with some open water.  I called Kabele's (sp?) yesterday and they said there's still a foot on Spirit and were guessing two weeks.  I'm guessing later next week with the forecast of high temps, wind, and rain.  Okoboji daught comm has a couple decent webcams.

Good deal, thanks for the update.  It seems that Spirit usually opens slightly earlier than East and West.  So watching the ice deteriorate on the East and West cams, always gets me curious about Big Spirit.

Ice went out on the Okobojies either yesterday or today.  Web cams show open water.  YEA!!!!
