When will there be first ice

16 posts in this topic

I haven't seen this for a while and all your posts are getting me way too fired up. Have already planned a local outing and a few out of towners for the season, but the bigger question is when do you think there will be fishable ice. Low in the teens tonight and again on Thursday. Thanksgiving this year or is that dreaming??

Our lakes aren't anywhere close to icing yet, temps have been in the 20's at night and low 30's in the day but none of the smaller ponds even have a thin layer of ice.

Just becareful and make sure to bring a buddy and to check the ice, We dont need to be hearing of anyone going threw the ice already. Didnt the news stories pop up pretty early last year because of something like that and we sure did here alot about it.

I've got 8.5 degrees right now. I'm going to go out later and check out the bays and shallow lakes and see if I can get on them. If not today, they should be good by Friday.

Clear Lake in Waseca had a large sheet of ice on the southern end. I Imagine the warmer temps today and tomorrow will put an end to that. Rage

    •   Because you have an affinity for such things??..    No, seriously, you need to take a good look at your browser's advanced settings.  Some browsers can be set so they will automatically wipe your cookies and search history every time you shut the browser down.  Not sure which browsers have this capability, but the one I use is Epic.    
    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....

    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse. ObamaCare will be funded, unfortunately, with more debt and printing to keep it and all it's problems on life support   Think "too big to fail" and QE    
    •   Nunes Backs Down From Assertion Trump Was Monitored   Keep reading your fake news Uncle Bill. Also Nunes canned the next committee hearing on Russia. He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors. It doesn't take much imagination.   There is actually a plan to fight this one. The goal is to crowd source some funding, then purchase the data for congressmen and publish them all to the public.
