So much has been going on, has anyone observed how the ice is doing on Winni. I know Squam is about all out, I have friends that were boating on Big Squam Tuesday..
The little lake is still iced in but moving out fast.
My code word to complete the post is "BEER", I hardly take a drink, maybe I should,lol
It is coming along pretty well. Copy and paste this link it gives you webcams around Winni.
great link...Link. Also when you go there, click on the "view new posts on the forum" link top and center and find the "Official 2010 Ice Out" thread (should be near the top). People there will post reports of what they are seeing that is not covered on the cams on the first site. Specifically, recent posts include pictures from Harillas showing wide open water as far as you can see and posted reports that it's open from 19 and 20 mile bay down to Cow Island.
I think we'd need a mini-ice age to not have ice out by the opener....hope I didn't just jinx it.
Took this photo from our front yard at 5PM today. It's from Chase Point looking north to Melvin Village. This sheet is blocking 19 Mile bay and there's another sheet inside of 19 Mile. Once these go then there's a lot of open water over here. With any kind of wind it won't take long. From Chase Point over to the Hole in the wall it's still iced in but very dark. Came home from Gilford today and the ice out in the broads is very dark. In Alton Bay it's just past the gazebo. If we get wind and rain next week, my guess is that we'll be fishing a lot of open water on April first.

Rain sun mon tue getting the boat out of storage tomorow YEEEEHAAAAA here we go!!!BARRY
this looks like the earliest "ice out" ever from what i can determine Big Jon ?
One thing I noticed in particular, some of the usual more reluctant parts of the lake to let the ice go, that I use as a guide, Black Cat for one, seem to be more open than other parts.
And Squam which usualy stays iced in another 5 to 10 days longer than Winni, has been all open for a few days now ???????
Sorry Big John, as of Friday morning Big Squam was totally iced in, from Sandwich down to Moultonboro as far as the eye could see. Not sure what the western side of the lake looks like.
