Heading up to try upper in a few weeks at a friend's cabin. Any update on ice depth?

Fished Post last week and caught a limit of Crappies.
Fished with jigs on the North end of the Lake.
Also caught a couple mid sized Bass and Pike.
It's easy for fishermen to discount a Lake when they can't figure it out.
We have had a place on Post for over 60 years now and my kids now are enjoying the fishing.
My brother has a 50 inch Musky on the wall from Upper Post and we have caught several 12-13-14 inch Crappies over the years.
We have also caught several 30 inch plus Pike over the years with the biggest being 37 inches.
I've been fishing this lake several times a year for the last 37 years in a row. This is a super fishing lake if you know how to fish it at that time of the year your fishing. i.e. Memorial weekend would be fished differently then now, etc. There are plenty of walleye on this lake with good size too. We catch them all the time when casting for pike/bass so they are there. The damn holds good numbers and size as well. Northern size has gone down the last 5-10 years I will admit that but the numbers are still there and if you want to drift and cast you and the kids will have lots of fun pulling in 15"- 25" on average. Crappies are plentiful on this lake and size is great. My 11 year old daughter has a replica of a 16" from 2015 caught during the Memorial Day weekend. Lastly, ice fishing by the tubes will get you flags all day long.

Heading to upper post this Saturday for a week with my two boys. First time on this lake. Hoping for a walleye or two. We are used to the traditional slip bobber / leach bite. Any help or feedback would be much appreciated. Please PM me. Thanks in advance!

Opening weekend. I see with the vast amount of traffic on this forum, this late posting is still good to go.
After three previous openers on this lake, it finally showed some promise. My past history from none caught, to one 11" caught, to every fish under slot, to this year... I definitely wouldn't call Post a walleye lake but maybe it's slowly turning around. The walleyes caught were keepers with only a few under slot size. The boat never caught our limit but we did have a good time. Mixed in with a handful Pike, one 30" and a good amount of Crappies, it was a good weekend.
