Messalonskee Lake 12/29

A nice fleet of ten boats chased light and variable winds up and down the lake all day, almost to sunset, and across cracks and a small pressure ridge that ran up and down a good portion of the lake. We flagged a crossing with Jim’s new day-glo green flags. This is the best, most visible color we’ve used so far.

There are large plates of ice just like this, punctuated by some rough stuff, but considering how lean our season has been thus far no one is complaining. The access and parking is excellent, and the forecast is offering us a bit more wind for tomorrow, NE, right down the lake, ahead of a snow storm moving in by dusk. It appears this will be it for a while. Reports from Mallet’s Bay indicate lovely ice as well, but getting buried soon.

Where to next? Wisconsin?
