Planning on going up tomorrow morning. Any new updates on this lake? I am hoping to fish out of town park, and working towards maple point. Thanks for your help.
Ice conditions are varied due to snow cover..Snow pushed some of the ice down off Chief Kuno late yesterday pushing water up, and creating dangerous conditions. Wedges Bay seems to be good with guys roaming out quite a ways. Town Park also seems good with guys just going past Devils Island. Also guys fishing down Howards Drive, assuming they are coming off of Town Park. Few guys starting to go off Twin Shores yrsterday, but be careful still a big goose hole towards Dead Island. No one has ventured near Indian Point, and the way it looked in the main basin I think I will wait. This is just what I have seen..and my opinion. Be safe.

We made it out safely yesterday with the spud bar in hand. I had 4 inches of ice where I was fishing off of chief Kuno trail. Our group stayed out until a little after 8pm and had a great day of fishing. Fished 3 fow near weed edges with tip ups. Lots of flags with keepers on the ice! Jigging was slow! Biggest walleye was 26 inches and biggest northern pike was 37 inches. Stay safe out there.
Ice is looking cold; not exactly like Puerto Vallarta Mexico beach when I would rather be fishing.
As I stated below, extreme caution needs to be used. Ice is not freezing very uniform and there is some snow cover. Last night was nearing single digits, so the ice will continue to improve. When I was out yesterday, I found spots that were crusted up and would not support my 200# frame, and I found spots that were just under 3". Every day will get better. Just proceed with caution.

Just a quick report on ice stopped out this morning Hit The Jug, near the point, and a couple other areas that I have access to. Ice was ranging from horrible to about 2 and 1/2 in. I didn't finish it all. I just walked around with the Spud checking ice. saw a few guys out fishing. Please use Extreme Caution when going out on the ice with the incoming snow cover
