Don't know about Newell but rattlesnake is half open I heard, whitecaps and all. So I would imagine Newell is dangerous.
Hope is a powerful medicine.

Just returned from the sw corner (shallow bay) where the ice thickness varied from 8Ē to about 10Ē. There was no top water. Looks like the center may have open water as the geese were very active. Also someone had recently sunk a nice ice shack in about 6-7í of water in the same bay we fished in. It still had open water around the edges. I donít have any details of why or how it sank. It wasnít there last Thurs. Take care!
