Considering I went in to just passed my knees yesterday about 7 feet from the pier ramp by the fisherman's gate, I'm glad they postponed the Derby. Ice was much stronger 15-20 feet out but doubt its safe right now. Next week it might be safe again.

I was checked last year by the conservation police. I was solo and had two tip ups and a pole and they stressed having only 3 fishing devices. I grew up on CL and have been fishing it for 35+ years and, as far as I know, its always been 3 lines. You definitely have to pay attention to size regs and bag limits, as they have changed throughout the years and are different than state laws.

Was out on CL thurs night and may have left two of my tip-ups by mistake. one was a bone style and the other a standard. PM me with any info.
Had a couple pike and small walleye. Fished 4-7pm. ice was 6 inches.
