The big bunch of snow forecasted, is coming to fruition with about 6” over the course of today. This afternoon I was on the Bay checking ice and doing a little scouting with my friend and fellow hard water outfitter Ryan of RTH Fishing. We left the bait shop hoping the 2 wheel drive WILCRAFT would handle the mounting snow. Feeling confident with the previous days ice check of a consistent 4”s, we cruised up the Bay at a decent clip. Probably 7-8 mph effortlessly through the 4-5”s of powdery snow. By the time I got back to the shop, it was dark and snow really coming down. A few anglers lost their way trying to get back to the landing. Once they did get their bearings in the white out conditions, it was a tough tug of the sled through the snow for 5 anglers. Good teamwork guys. Ice is in really good shape with 4-6”s on the Upper Bay. We’ll see how much snow we get from the tail end of this system and where it all blows to with the strong winds coming.
