Some friends were out checking ice around our shacks yesterday before the rain. They measured 16". But a lot of water on the ice. Some spots close to 8" of water. Be careful traveling on the ice. Weather it is by foot, atv or vehicle.
Fishing is going to be tough. There is 2 or 3 inches of standing water on top of the ice. 10 more days of above freezing including 50's over the week-end. I have no idea what this will do to the ice? Really strange conditions for January. Without a deep freeze like we had earlier, I am not sure we will see vehicles or shanties on the ice anymore this winter. Crazy!

JBoone no need to lie... There are plenty of 8-10 in gills in this lake even bigger on a rare occasion. This lake is just harder to fish cause u have to be mobile tell u find big fish. Look for them in the deeper part of the lake as winter goes on.
Despite the recent comments I am just getting into walleye fishing through the ice and have all my tip ups ready to go with a proper set up. What are some popular areas of the lake that people fish walleye? I know many wont share their info but i don't fish this lake often and i just want to try it once or twice. Thanks.
