    Does anyone have updates on lakes with ice-out? Please share

    I drove around Green Lake near Chisago today and I’d say it’s very close. Lots of water and the remaining ice was black and looked thin.

    According to the DNR ice out map just a few south of the metro, but that is only once it gets reported. Like Matt said I’m sure some on the south end of the state.

    Fish Lake in Maple Grove went out today. Was hilarious to see a house with their dock out already. Taking full advantage by not wasting a single day of open water season. I like it.

    My wife sent me a pic around noon and said Fish was close. I came home at 3:30, and it was clear and that guy was putting his dock in. rotflol

    I was in the bay on Koronis today. Had to dodge a lot of ice chunks floating down.

    Most lakes just west of the metro are at least 50% open. A little wind and rain and there will be a lot of open water by the end of the week.

    I seen this posted on FB this morning.
    Open water is moving farther north every day.
    The flooding has opened up LQP. Big Stone still has a substantial sheet of ice on it even with all the flooding going on over there.

    The narrows around Zorbaz on Gull are open. Majority of the chain still has ice
