Take a look at this photo. It's not super quality but something caught my eye. It was shot in 2003 on Minnetonka right at first ice. The ice is razor thin and the waters only a foot deep. But look close and you'll see tiny little air bubbles trapped in the ice that perfectly outline the rock that lies below it. Weird huh? What do you think would cause that?

I have no idea what would cause that but it is cool. I've never seen anything like that before.

I am guessing it's some cool physics coming into play here. Being simply a Yeti I wouldn't know where to start....

But the picture is further proof that just when you think you have seen it all in nature....someone has something new.

Thanks for pic!

That is a neat picture but I have never seen that before and could only guess why. Maybe sunlight heated the rocks.

If I had to guess, decayed algae on the rocks, and the bubbles are methane? Or some other gas from the decay?

I would guess the oxygen being produced by the algae, but I have no idea. You should have lit a match to see if it was methane grin

Normally you would be correct, I would be hard pressed to agree with you but I do think you are correct on this one! Oh well always a first DD gringringrin

I am wondering if maybe it was windy in the days before and maybe some small air bubbles were trapped in the algae on the rocks. Then as it calmed down the bubbles were released and got trapped.

Similar theory to the DD, but a bit different. Anyone's guess really.

    • IKR! My big decision was if I was going to spend one more day ice Fishing or not?
    • Hey how bout those WILD! Wild beat rival Blackhawks, take over Central Division lead
    • Today is clean house day here. $#@! 
    • Well, if I woulda spent some time in the bichfest forum last night I would've been reminded to make other plans than going to work today. So there coulda been some value there.   Got payroll approved and saw I was on holiday today so I left.    Still not used to having this day off.
    • Packers in the NFC Championship game, Lions in the playoffs, Viking eliminated early. At least you were right about the Bears. 
    • Just a reminder that today (Monday Jan. 16th) is Monday. It is best observed in an individual manner with each of us according it the solemnity we believe it deserves. And keep in mind that Tuesday is coming up.  And then Wednesday. And after that it is Thursday.   Don't look for a point to this post because there isn't one. 
    • 1.16.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello once again from the Northwest Angle!   We're back with another fishing report this week. It was another cold week out on the ice with temperatures below zero for most of the week. We should be out of the cold stretch for a while now and the weather for the next couple weeks is looking really good!   On the Minnesota side, we have our houses on Rabbit Ears, Four Blocks and Little Oak. All have been producing fish. Out at Little Oak, we are fishing in 24-28 feet of water off of structure and out in the mud. At Four Blocks, we are fishing in 22-27 feet of water and have found some very nice slot fish coming up the holes. At Rabbit Ears, we are still in 21-26 and it is still producing buckets of fish consistently. Best colors have been pink and gold tipped with a minnow.   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good. Limits of nice crappies have been coming back every day with some being in that 15-16" range. We are fishing in 27-33 feet for those, with small tungsten jigs tipped with a minnow or plastic. Walleyes have been very consistent in 25-30 feet of water on the Canadian side, also. Same jig colors as the US side, gold and pink tipped with a minnow.   Until next week everyone, stay warm and tight lines! Forrest Huset
    • I was just wondering if you had a point, that's all. I guess the answer is no.
