Like many of you, I'm just a little excited to start the fishing season. I've been following the ice to see when it will be out on the lakes that I fish and found a useful tool to do just that.
The NOAA Coastwatch Great Lakes Map has satellite imagery updated twice a day that gives you a good idea of where there is ice. When you look at the maps, you'll see that Lake Ontario is about 95% clear where lakes like Simcoe and Scugog are in the early stages of breaking open and showing signs of thin ice.
