The lake never completely iced over this year.  There has been patches of open water in some bays (you can see the one below in Saunders Bay) and in the broads (check the picture at the bottom of this page).  There has been talk about the ice going out earlier this year than it did in 2002.  Not so fast, boaters.  Check out the picture taken about the same time in 2002.  In 2002 we had a cool spring, so a warm March may push us into a late March Ice-out, but don't bet on it.  The "Old Man of the Lake" has set his prediction as April 7.   March weather is so unpredictable the only thing you can count on is that it will definitely be out earlier than the last two years (See chart below: Both April 20).
