    Went out a little while ago to check on a few things. Believe it or not the Muskingum has large ice glacers floating down, that would make it impossible to boat through. I also seen a few areas that the river is pretty much froze clear across. Duh! LOL:roll_eyes: I know thats what yall are thinking now! Anyways, my main purpose was to go out to drill some test holes on some ponds and small lakes for possible ice-fishing this weekend. There was approx. 2 1/2 inches of good ice right now. I personally feel better when it gets around 4. There was around 5-6 inches of snow blanketing all the ponds and lakes which I don't care for. Maybe we will get some better wind in the next couple days to help clear the surface some for better freezing. Snow is a very dry snow. I plan on going Sunday or possibly Monday if any of you guys local are interested in some fishing... rollo
