Local 1/2 ac. pond in Suffield Twsp had skim ice this morning. Typically, Moggie east of Congress Lake Rd has it at same time(maybe Ticknor too?). This means water surface temps are gettingi “right”, and BD is abt to start “dancin”! Predicting fishable ice by mid Dec(and everyone knows that ice in NEO before Xmas is always the “best“ fishing)! Sharpen up the augers!
