Who's Checking the ice today?
« on: November 23, 2018, 08:35:12 AM »
Temperature bottomed out at one degree this morning at my house. And no wind! There was skim ice on Tobyhanna and Promised Land on Wednesday, so I'm itching to see what it looks like today.

I'll maybe  check around here (far Southeast) but with temps in the forties and fifties it will just be another tease. :? Fingers crossed for you Northern guys for an early start. I'm certainly willing to drive a couple hours when we have a legitimate 4"

The ice was a little over 4 inches around the Snow Shanty launch. I only walked out about 100 feet or so. On the lower lake it was a little thinner...about 3 inches near the launch. I didn't venture out too far.
It might be fishable for some, but I'm gonna wait a little longer.

Nice! I don't have a lot of time tomorrow to beat the rain so probably won't go out but found a pond with 4 inches closer to me plus some places with 1.5 to 3 cooking. I wonder how Stillwater looks?

I checked prompton sat morning. 2 inches at the dam and 4 at the boat ramp.
Went back this morning and was too wet around the edges to check the ice

I took a ride out to the Pack yesterday and saw exactly what I expected to see........nothing! LOL. I checked out Caffrey and everything is wide open. Some of the smaller ponds on the way out were totally capped, so that's welcome news. According to the world of Facebook, a couple people were fishing Stillwater on Saturday morning. This rain is making me cry in my coffee cup...........I'm afraid it will undo a lot of the progress that the ice has made over the past week.  :? oI Time will tell. I spent some time last night getting my gear ready to go. Hopefully it won't be long now......

I was able to get on Promised Land on Saturday and Sunday morning. Even with the rain on Saturday night, the ice was still around 4 inches and the shore held up. I was off by 10 am, so I don't know how it held up since then. Probably not too well.
Jigged a bass, crappie, and a few decent bluegills. Enough for a lunch.

This week ought to set up another shot at early ice for sharpies that are willing to put in some thought and time checking spots. Thinking of the Forest City area, Ledgedale, PL. Toby and Gouldsboro are in contention too.

Hopefully the warm rainy weekend (following weekend that is) doesn’t mess with all the progress too much.
