A friend was in Minocqua, Wi on Thursday and he said they still have over 30" of snow on the ground and Minocqua Lake has 24" of ice.

Bottom DO during winter never drops much below 8 on Bremer Pond. Good water quality for the North Country.

I use this. It hooks under the bottom the ice. Notice the handle is wide enough that it cannot fall down the hole.

The pond was ice covered Saturday morning. The ice slowly disappeared during the day. The 36 degree surface temp is a new low for this date. crazy

I think it is a year for records to be set.
This is Lake Mitchell up near Cadillac, MI last Sunday April 21st.


Just a bit north of me, but not too far.

Funny thing tho, Lake Cadillac, it's sister lake is ice out.

Weird!

Finally some nice warm weather. 75 degrees today. The pond is responding with some radical changes.

Pond water level is up about 6 inches from last week thanks to the Rock river running a little higher from recent runoff. The water pushing up from the bottom of the pond also forced some bottom material into suspension causing a slight drop in clarity and D.O. Usually when this occurs during a period of warming water temperatures submerged plant growth swings into high gear.

Thank you for answering a question that was about to be asked!!!

My ponds are ground water fed as well and I couldn't figure out why they were so unclear this spring. Low water from last years drought and filling very fast this spring from the ground water swell of the snow melt and spring rains.

The more we monitor the pond, the more we learn. After 4 years of monitoring the pond on a continuing basis we know about 20% of everything there is to know about Bremer Pond. Someday I am hoping to get to 50%, though time is short (relatively speaking).

Dwight I have learned a lot monitoring your work. I would bet your 20 % figure is about 3X to high. I have been at this for 20+ years on our lakes and think I am at about 6 %. mnfish is right - the learning never stops. This thread has been a special ride !!!

I based my percentage on the formula: recorded years of observation multiplied by surface acres divided by 100 equals knowledge percentage, (ryo*sa)/100=kp, (4*5)/100=.20.

Plug your numbers into the formula for a scientific representation of your own kp.

A formula...love it!

kp=(ryo*sa)/100

Jeff's kp=(0 recorded years observation)*(1.25ac)/100

Jeff's kp=0

thus; Jeff's total pond knowledge equals zero

Dwight the formula checks out, at least in my case. smile

I wish I could recall about 43% of the 27% of my knowledge that Eric has provided, but multiplied times the 35% of the 31% of my knoweldge that Dwight has provided. Of course, this metric ignores the fact that MNfish would have to be used as a covariate, which would modify my math to a level that is beyond my comprehension.... Oh wait, time for lunch. Gotta go....

As a proud graduate of NDSU in mechanical engineering, I will bow to very few Jack Rabbits. But I know for a fact, that you sir have forgotten more about fish than I will ever know!

And for the record, this NDSU graduate had to look up the word covariate. I think your staff might get a kick out of that one. smile

MNFISH -- NDSU and SDSU are best friends in the athletic world, right? As long as we don't mess with your national championships in football, NDSU can tolerate a little basketball success down here. smile

I wonder if ewest ran his numbers through the formula and found that he knows more than he expected.

As a scientist, having his theory on kp shattered by some upstart's infallible formula can be difficult. wink
