Default Sylvan Lake - Teaser

This morning .. see!










Scott took this pic of Gull yesterday, he said it looks like the lake is completely frozen over.




Will upload a few more pic's as the lake changes. Last year Sylvan still had open water on November 26, I did a few test drills on December 02nd we had a good 6-7" ice.

Sharpen those hooks fella's ...

Cheers,

David

This for 12-Dec.

yoteblaster, I rounded to the nearest .5 inch. Let's not get too crazy.

Zip-in-Z = 8"


Lets see what others think?

For opening weekend,
based on the long term cold temps and not a lot of snow in the forecast, I'm going with 11 inches on Sylvan. That and it hasn't been taken yet

Gull on the other hand is going to be 13 inches. Good ole lucky 13.

Been foggy & warm here the last day or two, may have lost some ice, still lots of open water and the Canada's are still hanging around. Sylvan could be interesting this year.

1bluZebec that measurement is about the same odds as winning the 649 .... good luck.

Tease the hunters a bit .... must be the Rut season Brutus is back in town dating a few of his lady friends that hide out on the Sylvan G&CC.

About 350 yds from my back door.
