Could ice fishing be around the corner?
It’s starting to look that way.
Ponds and some lake channels are freezing over and there were rumors of some daring souls venturing out on some of those late last week. The colder nights help make good ice while windless days help preserve it.
Now, keep in mind experts say you need at least three inches of hard ice to be safe. Also, ice rarely freezes uniformly; it could be three inches in one spot and one or less in another.
