How much ice did we lose yesterday?
« on: December 28, 2016, 12:00:39 PM »
I think most places the temps got a lot higher than predicted yesterday, and they didn't drop as much or as quickly as expected last night. Just wondering how much it affected the ice? I looked at one lake on the way home(from the road as I was passing) and it looked like a lot of water on top and possibly some shore erosion, but did not stop to check. Just wondered if anybody checked last night or this morning?

A couple of the coves that I checked on the east side of Wallenpaupack (rt. 507) lost a lot of ice. They were mostly open water. I didn't go down to the southern end to check. I bet that is still in good shape.

However, I did find good ice on Fairview, surprisingly. Right out from the boat launch. The shoreline is locked up and there was about 4-5 inches of solid ice everywhere I drilled. I stayed straight out from the launch in the protected area and didn't venture to the right toward the main part of the lake. The whole lake is covered in ice though, so that's good.
It's unfortunate there's no fish in there.

Tafton Dan I know a guy who got a 11 pound walleye from there. 

It does surprise me that it held that much ice.

Wow, that's awesome. Yeah, I was just joking. It just seems like I have a hard time finding fish there.

There is open water around the shorelines on the small lakes here in Pocono Summit. I didn't try drilling any test holes.  Mark

Think I might stop and check our local lake tonight. Hoping to get back on the ice Sat. morning.
