I don't have any experience with how fast the ice melts on the bay so I am hoping a few of you can let me know. I noticed the east shore of the bay has considerably more ice than the west shore. This I guess is because of the wind? I would like to hunt on Kent Island east side (West shore, Shipping Creek, Cox Creek). I was there last sat and there was ice about 150 feet out. Will temps in upper 30s and mid forties on Friday melt some of this, any of it? Does the ice melt on the bay at a lower temp (below 32) because of the salt water? Any of you live on Kent Island that can give me an update Friday afternoon so I can determine if I want to make the drive down there? Thanks.
