    Default Big-Sue Ice out?

    Hey Guys,
    When do you all think we can get the boats out on the river this year? I am feeling May 12th. What is the usual time?

    If this weather holds I would think it crack early. I wonder if the king run will be early as well?

    The only Pike hole I have you have to snowmchine out, The hole I was refering to was for kings ,But I do not know if its going to be there this year or not after the 20 year flood last year the channels have changed and this one might not be there any more, As soon as the ices goes I'm droping the airboat and will do some exploring

    If the Su busts out early because of warmer than normal weather will the weather also effect the pike spawn timing? Things that make you say hmmm.

    Any update on how the Big Su looks around the Susitna landing and around in that area? I was thinking of taking a run up there as soon as the ice is gone.
