Open Water East, Ice-Fishing West

Lake ErieDynamic weather systems bring amazing changes to Lake Erie.  Open water between the east side of South Bass Island and Kelleys Island seems to promise the arrival of spring.  However, a good look westward shows a healthy ice-fishing environment.  The ice measures 10-inches and the water below, according to reliable sources, is not murky near Rattlesnake Island.  Tuesday’s high temperature was 21°F; peak SSW wind gust was 32mph at South Bass Island Lighthouse.
