Ice Report: The north Bay of Pelican has 4+ inches of pretty smooth ice, Fish houses on the lake... 3/4 mile legs... The main body of the lake may come in depending on tonights temps (2 spectacular inches there today) the North bay froze a couple days earlier, but is a bit rougher... Note... the West edge of this bay froze a day after the other 90 % of the bay...

As a 3 rd alternative, there's 4+ on Christina, but a hazard must be crossed to reach the sailing area..

that's 3 venues within 5 miles of Ashby

First Start: 11:00 the standard MISA First set up sets the weather mark...
