He is setting up in Spicer launch around 11AM. Winds look like 8-9 and comfortable temps. Sunday big winds and cold.

Green Lake at Spicer

Meyer, Kennedy and Miller had to wait till 2 pm for the wind to fill. Then we had 2 hours of some real ripping the big lake. conditions about a 7. Solid black icewith a few chunks here and there. One pressure ridge but could sail around it to the west. Snow coverage about 60% with 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inch drifting. With wind at 10-12 we blew through it all. With higher winds predicted, they may stiffen some more.
Landing in Spicer worked, but getting a pressure ridge on shore. We backed on off single file. Ice about 5-7 inches per fisherman. 4 wheelers have been out.
