    I was out there Sunday. The southern third still has ice. Didn’t look up north. ImageUploadedByOhub Campfire1518538017.555769.jpg

  6. Question about that picture. That looks like a dock extending out onto the ice. Did they leave one dock in over the winter?

    If I’m not mistaken that is just the concrete dock that the floating docks attach.

    They left a floating dock in.

    It’s not concrete.
     
  9. Interesting, didn't know they left a dock in.
     
  10. That’s great. I didn’t realize they left us one dock to use. This means you can launch year round solo. I’m going to drive over and take a look myself

    Yes. Whole lake is open. I spent the day on the lake yesterday. In the morning the lake was about 50% ice covered. By 4 PM, over 90% of the ice was gone. Now there is just a little in some coves that are shaded and protected from the wind. South of Cheshire the water temperature was 38 degrees. North of 36, water temperature was 43 degrees.
     
  15. They left one dock in this year but it's not as long. Still enough to launch.

    Water was chocolate milk north of 36. Between 36 and Cheshire the water was murky -- maybe 6” visibility. South of Cheshire there were places that were murky and others that had 2-3’ of visibility. The windward shores were very murky. Generally, the further south the clearer the water.

    I fished from noon to sunset with no luck. Still good to be on the water working the kinks out.
