:wave:
Just a word of caution ... If anyone is coming up to the Cedarville - Hessel area to go ice fishing or attend the snowmobile race next weekend... watch out for bad ice. Many places have opened up where there has generally been good ice. Yesterday there was actually a long area of open water around Ailes Point in Cedarville Bay. The recent snow has covered bad ice that now can't be seen. Don't venture where there are no tracks. Stick to the well travelled snowmobile trails.
The perch seem to be back in large numbers. Now that the Cormorant population has been drastically reduced the perch are increasing. Isn't it amazing how long it took the "experts" to figure that one out!
Thanks,
Rylo

:nope: The Pro Snowmobile Race at On Cedarville Bay has been called off due to "Bad Ice".. I give the Committee credit for doing this. A few years ago when we had similar ice conditions a member of the Michigan Deaf Snowmobilers went through the ice on the bay in exactly the same spot that the ice is soft now. He did not make it out. Many of us felt that that event should have been cancelled. Hats off to this group.
Thanks
