Can anyone inform me if Owen Sound is ice free yet ?? I know the west shore of NOTTY bay is open and Owen sound looks like it from the satellite but I think itís just black ice.  ??

It is not unusual at this time of the year for overnight temps to drop below the freezing point. If there is no wind, this can result in ice covering a significant amount of the Bay by morning. Often just a few inches or less of ice but it makes trolling somewhat challenging. Normally the ice gets broken up and becomes a non-issue by 10:00 or 10:30 a.m. but by then the dawn "prime time" has ended. Obviously a pain to drive a good distance to the launch ramp and having to drop the boat into an ice covered harbour.

I've read a few of the responses by Kam Fienne to various threads started by other members. I am aware that old age on my behalf is likely a factor but I struggle to make the connections with fishing in any of the responses I've read. I've likely missed something along the line but would appreciate any guidance on this "issue".
