  • Looking for open water

    I am looking for some open water in one of the valley lakes so I can do some test runs with the boat. I am installing an alumaducer transducer and want to be absolutely sure it is in a good location before glueing it in place.

    Checked out Finger Lake today, edges are open and the boat launch is starting open up. Couple more warm days and stiff wind should do the trick.

        I drive by there each day to go to work. It probably needs a week or so, but I do agree it is melting really fast. Perhaps this weekend?

            How about we bump this thread up. Has anyone been out to finger to check it out in the last 24 hours?

              I went out there last night. the launch is still iced up. from the shore line out there is about 10' of open water. Over behind the camp host parking spot there is a larger opening, but nothing i would waste my time with.

                I ran the Knik, from glenn to old glen, last sunday in my 1875xs. This was my first run in this boat and i have 0 jetboat experience. Very shallow in spots, but i only got stuck once. I will be going out for another run this afternoon. Launch at the glen was a bit steep, but it can be done fairly easily, and the water should start to come up.

                          I'm still going to wait until one of our fine "spotters" come back with a thumbs up. At the price of fuel I ain't wastin' a drop until I know it's open...

                            That is darn close to clearing up, not sure it will be gone by Sunday, but you can bet next weekend it will be wide open.
