    Valley City Ice Report


    WE DON'T HAVE ANY!!! Went for a drive with the Mrs. today to look at some lakes and saw just as much open water as we did ice. Hobart, 50% open, Sanborn 30% open, Moon 50% open, Fox 30% open, Eckelson 30% open and what's not open looks like thick slush with a nice "Frothy" topping. For you guys thinking the ice should be safe because of the last two days temps, it's NOT SAFE!! Didn't even have to check the edges with rocks..........most of them were open to the shore at some point. Might want to wait a while guys. I'll update as I get out and about. Just an FYI. Be Safe Fellas!!!

    Thanks KDM. Judging by the forecast I'm going to be sticking to getting the dog out for pheasants and maybe do a little yote calling.

    I didn't put pontoons on my spear shack so I'll be joining you in the pheasant fields and on the coyote reduction committee.

    I was pheasant hunting by valley city, marion area last weekend in my shirt sleeves, if there is any ice it isn't going to be good ice. I have watched the ice on devils lake bays go from 5 1/2 inch nice blue ice to 4 inches of white bad ice in the last 2 weeks

    Still open water on the Sanborn ponds and Hobart by the culvert on the North end. Moon still had some very WET looking ice over the deep water, but the edges look pretty good. Didn't get over to Eckelson or Fox. It's hit and miss right now so as always fellas, Be Safe.
