Pymy ice report
Checked the ice around the lake and its starting to look promising. I may be dumb but I ain't stupid and you won't catch me fishing it yet. Give it a few more cold days and nights. This weekend in my opinion will still not be safe. 3" of clear ice is good enough for me or 4" of mixed ice (2" clear 2" of cloudy).
With that said, north end: linesville marina, 3" with 1 1/2" of each clear and cloudy. Linesville beach, same. Spillway (outside the breaker wall) 3" mix with 1" clear 2" cloudy. Fries boat launch, about the same as linesville area. Tuttle boat launch chunked up and like I said I'm not stupid so I didn't even walk out. Tuttle beach and manning boat launch, the same chunk ice I didn't even walk out. All north end has snow in spots and has some slush in spots.
South end: orchard launch, 2" clear ice. No snow anywhere on the south end that I saw, it's all crystal clear ice. Drove around more of the south end, but didn't check any other spots cause it all looked the same as orchard.
All ice measured with a tape measure not just guessing.
Ill be back out Tuesday (work sat, sun, and mon) to check everything again. Hopefully the rain/warmer temps they're calling for end of next week don't hurt us to bad. Provided we don't get pounded with rain and the night time lows still below freezing we should be good for next weekend.
The worst day hunting or fishing will always be better then the best day at school or work!
