30th Annual Ice-Out Contest

How about it?
Tired of looking out at that lake and seeing nothing but ice and snow?
Do you have everything you ordered for next fishing season?
Dreaming of being on the water with a fishing rod in your hands?
Want to fire up the boat and check out what's on the other side of that island?

This won't make it happen any sooner but how about guessing when the ice is going off our lake! Just submit your entry below, send it along, and we'll post it with all the others! More than one person can guess a date but ONLY one entry per person please. (Of course if you have 5 kids, that's 5 more guesses!)

Need some help
on how to guess?
Check out these suggestions:
Ice-Out Dates

or see what others have guessed
Sincere apologies for this late date-start with the
"ice-out contest" but we're having troubles with the
"recaptcha" procedures and the fact that we had to
change the cloud settings with our server. In all
the confusion we still are working thru the troubles
to get it straightened out. Until then lets use the
old and true method of sending us your ice-out guess.

Pleasr just send me an e-mail with your name, city
and state, and your guess. We'll get it posted as soon
as it comes in!
Just send it to
