Snow cover changes things on area lakes

By Bill Bartusek

So far this winter, ice anglers have had it pretty easy. Moving about the lake ice wasn’t difficult and with very little snow. That will change now. Snow has covered the ice, making things a little harder. You’ll need a shovel now to find clear ice to shoot sonar through. Some cars will have a tough time driving through the deep snow. Where there are deep drifts near fishing shacks, water may also be a problem. The heavy snow will force snow on top of the ice so you will have to block them up.

However, it will be easy to bank fishhouses with snow.
