    Be cautious, the lake ice is starting to get rotten.

    Still frozen it was high winds yesterday, and a few made it across.
    too windy to even fish the dunes.
    took several hours to get down to Cards cabin area where the current would help..
    this snow storm yesterday will make it a little tougher to drag boats over the snow. the when its glare ice its easy ...
    last week we shuttle a vehicle for some fellows that took a drift boat down. it looked like lots of work to pull that boat the 1.2 miles from the boat launch to the open water.
    I have done it many times with canoes and kayaks and they pull easy enough on snow or ice, but it looked tough going with the drift boat..
    the shore line about 1 mile down is open in parts, but is a waste of time to try and get into that water, as it is open only in sections, you would have to get back out on the ice to go again.. easier to just pull your boat till the open water at the river..
