I been keeping an eye on keegs, as of last week (last time I was there) the ice had washed up on to shore. Going to check on it again this Friday and give an update. Hoping this warm weekend melts off the remaining ice.

I posted some pictures from last week here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=12250

The lake at large is pretty much clear, but I'm sure there are some drifts out there. The shore may still have ice and in the shots I took there are still ice balls in the water so I was hesitatnt to get in the water as I could have hit those too easily. I think now it may be OK, but I'm out of the state so I can't check for yah. Too bad it'll still be colder then 35* on any North wind though for at least another week :/

Thanks for the updates.

I will probably swing by Montrose on Saturday to see conditions and will post on here. Would be nice to know Keegs conditions on Saturday as well since Sunday tentatively looks fairly warm and windy. Also any Wolf and Sheboygan updates?

Thanks in advance!

I know Wolf is good to go. I passed it on the highway the other day and only some really thin ice on one corner. I'm sure it's all gone now. Time to rock it there on the SW days coming up. The lake is swollen with water so that ankle dep water is probably shin deep now. WO0T

Shhh!! C'mon keep that on the DL! ;) It's the only open water around! but since the cats outta the bag, the Hoosier crew kited it today. Very cold and yes considerably deeper in the flats by a good 6-8 inches. Launch is just as sketchy as before and little room for kites. If you go please be courteous and not take up too much real estate.

Stopped by Montrose, a couple crazies out there. A little too cold for me but no ice on the NNE wind.
