The weather forecast for the weekend calls for 3-6” and on some sites 6-12” inches of snow! This is concerning.
After some research, there have been a handful of years that have had ice on the lake during opener,1950, 1966, 1979, 1996, 2008, 2013 and 2014. Granted, this accounts for all lakes(“up north” tends to be colder) but, the possibility still remains, Metro lakes may not be accessible.
We have done what we can to calm the cabin fever: Washed boat carpets,made jigs, spent entirely to much money on tackle, rods, and reels. All we have to do now is wait…patiently…we feel that patience is out the window, and some “Bass therapy” is in dire need.
We will continue to hold onto the hope, and pray for ice out.
