Rock and Long Ice Out, Platte 90% Open
Rock Lake Looking Northeast
Rock Lake looking Southeast
The lakes gave me a surprise today. I took mom into Onamia and Onamia Lake was wide open. I went to Bulldog first tonight and it was about the same. Next I drove North Platte Lake Drive and all of Platte that I could see was open except the northeast corner. I decided to go take a look at Rock and was shocked to discover it wide open. The wind was such that it was unfishable. Next I checked Long and it looked wide open. Then I went to Jenny's and there was still some ice there . There was also ice at the Platte Lake Access so I am not calling Platte Lake Open as I couldn't get from the access to Jenny's in a boat today. I was a little to pumped up from the open water and ended up spilling the minnow bucket when I arrived at the GOMH. Thank goodness I had my fishing towel along to help clean up the water. I didn't fish very long and didn't get a bite.
