I'm thinking the sun makes all the difference. in years to come, with the carbon tax taking hold we should expect ice well into June.

considering the history of the lake I very much doubt there will ever be ice in june, money grabbing politicians and their propaganda will only make one thing frozen in june and that's your wallet. lol

with all the rain in the forecast the next week, things should start progressing. ( IMO )
any locals have any insight on ice thickness at the moment? i read on another board that the thickness on a lake about 45 minutes north of NIP still had 2 & 1/2 feet of solid ice on it..

cant tell you thickness of ice but I can tell you thaw is well underway, temps now are 24 hours a day above freezing and double digit daytime, plus rainfall warnings so a lot should happen in the next week.

That may not mean a whole lot. 70-100km's north can mean a world of difference.

We were in full out thaw mode one year and well into it. I grabbed a rod and went for a drive north to some trout lakes about 45mins-1hr away. Got up there and they were STILL ICE FISHING!
