    Thanks for the information gentlemen! With the +2/3 degree weather for today and tomorrow, I might rethink going out Friday. I've been told there has been a good 4-5 inches, but that may change by Friday

    hope you have a float suit also. From what i've heard there is Ice there BUT it doesn't always mean its safe. Stay far from the river/bay side on the East, that usually have some currents so not a good place for first ice. Make sure you and your buddy have a rope just in case.

    Make sure you use that spud. There is a lot of currents out there and there is always some soft spots.

    4-5 " black ice under 1-2" of white ice.
    Spent the morning out there. Going to work smelling like skunk today!

    First Ice On Quinte

    For the third year in a row there has been ice on Quinte before Simcoe. You really have to watch where you walk but there has been some fishing going on.
