Definitely agree with Bear Island South. After the last nights wind and rain we need an aerial.

No ice in sight from Belkap Point looking toward Welch, Round and Timber. Also no ice in view from Scenic Road near Ellacoya looking toward the broads.

The Slickcraft is in the water and should be started this afternoon. Maybe a trip out to Welch Island tomorrow.

You won't have any troubles getting to Three Mile from Y-Landing. Yesterday morning the webcam showed the ice had shifted with the storm to be socked in the eastern edge of Pine Island, however pal Misty Blue and I got the Alumacraft rigged and by the time we got out to Light Buoy #4, it was pretty much cleared and we could get to the dock fine.

It was a spectacular day out there and we enjoyed the sun for a bit before heading back. Didn't see any other boats on the water (or ice). And this morning the PI webcams show no ice at all... poof!!

Spring has sprung, life is GREAT!! PIG

Question Ice

There is no ice to be found on any of the webcams. Could Center Harbor be the hold up?

Default Ice Out by Friday????

We're planning on trying to get to Little Bear from Melvin Village on Friday. I sure would appreciate any info on conditions in this area if ice out isn't declared by then. The pictures looking out of hole in the wall towards Pier 19 make it look like it isn't open.

I am hoping that Fly Guy will be posting a new video soon. I would really like to see Meredith and Center Harbor. We are expecting some rain and possibly mixed precipitation on Tuesday April 19.

Thank you Fly Guy.

Depending on what side of little bear you are on you could get there. It is open from the grave yard down to harillas. The side facing 19 mile bay was closed off. I am willing to bet that all the ice will be gone by friday.

RG and I took a ride clockwise from the tip of Alton Bay to Center Harbor. We did not see any ice until we got to Meredeth and Center Harbor. In both cases the North East side was holding on.

Hmmm...Looks like Emerson will have to file an IFR flight plan to get up to declare today!

Does it HAVE to be done from the air? Can a boat declare it??

I'm sure a boat could do it, but it is tradition having Emerson Aviation make the call.

Emerson Aviation announced ice out this morning, as a few previous posts show. They did say that there's some ice outside of the MOUNT's path. The definition of iceout is when the MOUNT can make all her ports without running into any. That means if you have a boat in the water, and you stick to the MOUNT's path, you won't find ice. No guarantees for places outside the MOUNT's path!

The water temp actually dropped in the last couple days. It had been 40 at the surface a couple days ago. Now we have 37 at the surface and 35 at 10 feet down.

If you end up in the water for any reason, your muscles will become almost useless to you within a minute or so. The first few seconds in the water will be as painful and shocking as if you fell through a hole in the ice. After about 2 minutes your movements will be very sluggish and drunk-like. If you remain in the water you will probably be unconscious before rescuers arrive.

WEAR the life jackets. Carry survival suits on board if you have them. But at the very least, WEAR the life jackets.

Maybe they can use the slush ice floating around to make sno-cones on Memorial Day weekend.
