Any safe ice yet in ma and or ri
« on: December 25, 2010, 08:02:59 PM »
I have heard a few second hand reports that some ponds in ma are holding about 4-6 inches of ice. Gonna try and get out tomorrow the 26th in foxboro. Anyone have a new report since last year? Good luck guys and gals. Watch out for those darn wind flags. ;D

Safe ice here in southern RI. Chapmans Pond has been frozen for at least a week now. Not sure about other lakes in the area.

Wow.. that's  really odd with the low temps we've  been having. The ice sculptures that they put out in downtown Westerly over a week ago still haven't  melted!

Thanks for the reports guys. I went out yesterday in foxborough Ma Neponset res. I had to cut the trip short due to the weather. Managed to get a couple slim darts and a 2lb largie. The ice was between 4 and five inches thick. Not sure how the warm weather is gonna be effecting it this weekend. Gonna try and get out this Fri.

Nope I live in North Attleboro. I used to be a member of this thread a few years back. I went a long time without a computer. Hopfully this one out lasts the last. Curt may or may not remember me. Long time no post gents.

I do remember you Wally :)

I noticed you created a new account. Your old one might have gotten deleted if it was inactive for more than a couple of years.

Glad to have you back  :D
