I had 6” on a Mercer area lake at thanksgiving, so I wouldn’t doubt 8 or more by now. We were taking the atv out. This wasn’t the flowage though, I’m sure all that rain really pumped up the current.
Talked with a friend during an insurance meeting, he was chasing whitefish and told me the shelf ice had started on Trout recently. After opening weekend I’ll be back up and will be testing some ice. I suspect there are the normal early ice places available to fish
Appreciate the the ice updates on the Flowage. Unfortunately, based on the forecast, what's not covered in ice out there (if anything isn't) will most likely be after the weekend. Disappointing. This is the 2nd straight year the Flowage has locked up early.
If any of you drive by LDF/Trout or any of the other big, deep lakes - updates on those would be appreciated as well.
