What happened to make the water go from 78 inches of clarity to only a couple inches???


Good morning Dave, I've checked the ships systems, and everything appears to be running normally.

Chart switches from vis to ice thickness after ice over. Cant see through solid ice accurately.

Thanks Dwight -- those crisscrossing lines happen twice a year.

The Friday night's low forecast of -6 F is cold for this early in the season. Brutal doesn't start until -40 F.

Yep


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

First ice fishers of the season are out this afternoon. Paul and Collin (aka The Collinator). It was nice doing my D.O. sampling in a nice warm ice fishing house!

Must be cold - I see from the chart almost 12 inches of ice already. Everything else looks static - for now.

I think it's going to be a long winter for Dwight up there from what I'm seeing on extended forecasts.


If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

Air temperatures have remained cold but ice thickness is only up slightly. There is a insulating layer of snow averaging 2-3 inches that is limiting ice building. And, of course, the warm water below the ice is always fighting back against ice building.

D.O. has dropped top to bottom. This is to be expected with the snow on ice cover and cloudy days that we experienced this past week. There is no cause for alarm as D. O. is still excellent top to bottom.

Bottom D.O. is taking on that winter look.

Ice is 13 inches at the location where temperature and D.O. sampling occurs. We drilled quite a few holes this weekend (at least 30). The ice ranges from 11.5" TO 14". The thickest ice appears in the deeper water. If the warmest water is closest to the bottom then it follows that ice that is closer to the warmer bottom would develop more slowly than deep water ice (ignoring all other factors such as wind and current).

Remember that my ice commentary only applies here. I suspect every body of water will have differing ice formulation characteristics.

I forgot to mention. We managed a clarity check from the stick's fish house. 60 inches.

That's interesting Dwight. I had most of the snow on my biggest pond blow off. Funny thing is you would think there is deep snow somewhere, but it's all blown to parts unknown except for the relatively deeper snow up next to the shoreline.

The blue line is water clarity during the open water period and ice thickness during the ice season. If you look at the top of the data you will see "Ice" with a blue background when the switch occurred.

The solubility of oxygen in water is temperature-dependent, and about twice as much (14.6 mgL) dissolves at 0 C than at 20 C.

I can't offer any proof as to why the bottom D.O. would have leveled out and even ticked up a 10th.

Could it be that clearing the snow in strips across the pond let in enough light to make a difference?
