Recommended Posts

Starting to wonder the way the ice thickness is this year if were going to get our docks and lifts in by opener or even out of the launch? :eek:

What kind of ice thicknesses are you still finding around the state now?

I go to Wisc for the Mn opener (less comedy at the landings) ,,, Spoke to my buddy that lives on the lake and he's skeptical if the ice will be out by the Wi opener let alone the Mn opener ,,,, Still 32 inches of ice in the Danbury area

Lots of ice but it can go fast with the right weather. Suppose to be pretty cool for the next 10 days or so though.

The only year I've seen ice on WI opener is 2013. March of 2013 was a full 6° F colder (mean temperature) for the month than March 2018 has been. So already we are off to a considerably better start.

 

More importantly though, April of 2013 was an abysmal month. On a stretch from April 5th to April 27th, we received just 15 total hours of partial sunshine (partly cloudy), out of a possible 286 hours of sunshine, meaning the sun was out just 5% of the time (probably closer to 4% with passing clouds during those partly cloudy days). It was also tremendously below average temperature-wise (20 of the first 25 days were 10 degrees or more below average).

 

Once the sun comes out in mid-April ice goes extremely fast. It would take another month like 2013 where the sun just doesn't come out at all for it to happen.

Ice on opener means getting to fish with 2 lines.

 

Well there is that. :lol:  I would say Welcome to the forum but it looks like you have been around for a while.

My opener is in the Brainerd MN area and it looks like they are going to get another dump of snow later today! :angry::cry:

Sure. They'll all be out.  All they gotta do is slide them down to the lake on the ice and snow pack.  Maybe a push with somebody's sled.
