So how much ice did you have? This is my first year ever with a shanty and any info would be appreciated. Did they go in because of the holes opening up or thin ice? Thanks

Went to fish a shack out on Sunday. Between people keeping 3 inch gills and people driving all over the lake I'm not sure what is worse. BTW when you pull up to people pulling out an ice shack your first question should not be " hey how much ice you have over here". It's hard to believe that more people don't go in, there is still open water over by the island for sure. Be safe out there gents!!

On Saturday we went out with a big group of high school students off of the Spinning Wheel. We went out about a half mile and fished in 6 to 8 fow.  We had flags all day long and it was fun to see the kids racing each other to the tip up.  We caught a lot of fish (both jigging and tip ups), but nothing of size.  Biggest fish was a 31.5" Northern.

I only measured 1 hole and the ice was 12".  Probably could have drove out,  but played it on the safe side.

Fishing since 9:30. Walked out from county park. Ice is 15" under us. Other people driving we decided against because there is a few questionable spots where people left shantys out in the warm weather. One is marked with a tree others are not. Catching Small pan fish and no tip ups yet. If you don't know how to be safe and respectful on the ice stay home.

Fished a couple spots this morning slow is an understatement, small gills and perch. Saw the shack with the truck submerged that one is a head scratcher you can see open water not that far away. If you haven't been out in awhile make sure you have creepers. Cold coming in about a week. Measured 12 inches ice.

Was planning on bringing some students out tomorrow morning. I would have thought for sure that the weather the last few days would have made things a little more safe, however, the recent reports are making me second guess our plans. We we were going to walk out from the Spinning Wheel and fish that West, North-West part of the lake. I don't normally come on and ask for ice reports, but has anyone gone out and of Spinning Wheel in the last couple of days? Will we be ok walking out (maybe a four-wheeler or UTV), or should we plan on fishing a different lake? Feel free to PM if you would like.
