If anyone is interested in watching the freeze over from updated sat images...

Obviously, when cloud cover is present we don't get to really see anything, but on the last non-cloudy picture (Nov 11th), you can see that Sawmill, up to what looks like Sandpoint, is snow covered. Not that great for making ice... 

 

We got a little excited and now Mother Nature is like "Not before XMAS!" :P

That is a good thing. Next week's - 20 nights should make some good ice!

 

Maybe it will be ready for the 9th?

 

Here's to hoping :)

Looks like the ice ridges are forming in the usual spots as well.

Made the first trip to lac today. Fished two spots and both were plentiful with fish. Fish were vicious today. Below is two 17.5” walleyes that smacked a darter back to back. We released a 27 inch walleye. 12” ice everywhere. One ice ridge at sand point. No snow, all ice. Trucks not recommended unless the knock down the ice ridge at sand point. We took a side by side out.

 Thank you Sir, 8' to '12 could hold a small car. Or do you suggest I just walk out ?
