Stopped by idle island tonight after work to see what kind of shape the lake was in. It was really soupy out there. 3" of water around shoreline. I could see a  couple people out there fishing.

Was out on Saturday the  13th around 8am, and caught a 20"-22" northern on a tip up with some large shiners, and over a dozen tiny perch near Holtz Island. Saw the open water others were talking about. We were about 100 yards from the open water but still had a consistent 10" of ice. I would still be careful out there.

I went out from Pleasant View to Holtz Island today. No fishing, just checking ice for tomorrow. I saw the open water. I have some buddies meeting me out there tomorrow but they will need to come from Idle Isle. I was wondering if the ice was safe from Idle Isle to Holtz if you stay on the East shore side? Would have checked myself. But found out they want to come out after I checked.

Out fishing today from 8-3:30. Fishing out by holz island. Fishing was pretty slow today. Ended up going 3 for 3 on flags. All pike sizes were 18",25" and a fat 27". Jigging wasnt really good either. Caught a bunch of tiny perch. One 9" perch and a decent size gill. Ice was about 8" where we were. But towards center of the lake about 250-300 yds out from holz island was open water. Was starting to freeze back over towards end of day. So BE CAREFUL if you are walking around that area. Good luck and stay dry!

Greg, last year was 24 inches, to try and freeze out the starry stonewort. This year it was drawn down 17 inches as usual.

Check out little Muskego lake district.

Greg. That sounds about right. They drain it down 18-24 inches for winter.

Was out from the Pleasant View Dr. launch from 11am-9pm 12/31. Fished about 4ft of water, didn't want to venture further out with the ice conditions. 4-6" in most spots but many random fingers of open water and spots with less than 2". Lots of Atv and snowmobiles out there. Almost watched a couple atvs ride right into open water. Bring a spur bar. As for the fishing, some gills and perch jigging on both small fathead and red spikes. Only one tip up, but it was a fat 32-33" pike. CPR. No Walters :(
