Well.... just got a call from a good buddy who heard a big crack had just opened up on the south shore of Upper Red. I headed back out onto the lake to check if the ice had done anything since I had been out within the last hour and this is what I found. There is a 8-12 inch crack that opened up in about 7ft of water at 1/4 mile out or so. I marked it using four to six criss crossed lathe. I could see out further there was a much bigger crack that had just opened also. It is in 12 ft of water or so and looks to be 50-100 feet wide?

It's amazing how quickly conditions change on big water like Upper Red!
