I packed up the gear and headed to Deltaville to take advantage of the nice winds. When I got there I was glad to see a few cars in the parking lot. My joy went away quickly when I got to the dock because it looked like the ice was about 1/4" thick and only a small path out of the creek which was iced over by a thin layer of ice. There were 2 boats in the water one with guys who were clearly fired up to break through the ice and the other was happy to wait for the first to leave. I walked down to the end of the dock and it looked like the ice went all the way down to norview before it broke up. I decided to see how these guys did before making the decision. The first left and it seemed clear that he would have a few scrapes from the ice on the side of his boat. The second was better but did not sound great. I decided to bag it and hope for some warmer weather to melt the ice. I snapped a few pictures of the second to leave and got a short video but I am not sure how to post the video.
