Ice retreats even more. Near Record Ice Out coming.
More pics from Shagawa Lake on April 1st, 2010. Not an April Fool's Joke, the ice is almost gone. Here's some shots from Sandy Point and also some from Semer's Park Beach where we hold our Sunsplash Canoe and Kayak Sale and Tryout Days every year. (This year it will be over Memorial Day Weekend).
It really looks like April is the month to get some early canoe trips in. If paddling is your passion and you want to beat the bugs and the rush, or you're just itching for open water, call us today to rent canoes and plan an early trip in April. We don't expect the ice to make it through the Easter weekend. Some of the smaller lakes are already open. The Kawishiwi River has been free for a while. Drew, Bert or Steve Piragis can help you. 1-800-223-6565
