Anyone been out to check ice thickness on any of the lakes or back channels? I'm trying to get on the ice on Saturday.

The state park is one good shore fishing spot. Not sure if ice is taking over.

Does anyone think there will be safe ice by Sunday afternoon in back channels?

Was up on Catherine and Channel today to scout ice. Minimal. Only ice was in sheltered coves. Too much wind. Thin ice extended maybe 50 yards from shore at most. Too much wind for ice to form

This is our last soft water report for the season.  The Northwood fished Lake Marie Saturday morning and Sunday late morning to early afternoon.  We noticed that the previous week live bait wasn't the choice of the stripers, sheep, etc.  So after searching for fish on Saturday, we changed our presentation to artificial bait.  Drifting from 6 - 25 fow we caught and released perch, yellow stripers, many white stripers, many walleyes, a northern, many sheephead, three catfish, many crappies; almost the complete buffet.  No muskies landed for us this weekend.  Plenty of boats were catching plenty of fish.  What a fantastic sight.  The Chain fishery is alive and well.  Thanks for reading as we look forward to some ice fishing.  Expecting grandchild #1; my guide Lars and his wife Megs any day now.  We are very blessed.  Merry Christmas !   Tight lines !   IC

Went out yesterday and had skim ice on Marie in a bunch of places.  Started off deep throwing a new style bait and did well with a lot of whites.  Bite tapered off a bit.  Drifted from 25'-4' and only sporadic action at best.  We ended with two eyes that were both put back for next year.  Quite a few boats out, I counted 11 at one point.  Fish were all over locator but bite died for us around 11.  Not a hit on crawlers only a few on minnows most came on the new bait.  Beautiful day for 12-3-17.  I was telling my friend we should have went out Firday, and luck had it someone said they slammed the eyes on you guessed it....Friday.
