Is it wide open yet? Could a guy get a boat out?
Saw one group out on a back bay off the main lake, but that was the only group we saw anywhere on the ice. Open water everywhere. Nearly 100% of the south end of the lake is open. Maybe with the cooler weather, but very dangerous now
I fished it Wednesday and had current where I typically drop lines. With the rivers opening up the water got "dirty" I would guess that hasn't changed. Marked a lot of fish, no takers I would wait it out instead of forcing a fishing trip.

Updated ice conditions report: there is open water everywhere. I drove around the lake and checked out the bays and attached smaller lakes and nothing looks safe. It will be several days before there is any safe ice here.
The ice conditions look highly varied. There is open water in places. Some of it looks soft and there is new snow from last night and its piling up now. The bay that we overlook does not look safe, but I'm cautious. I'm not going to be the first one out there, but if I see others on the lake I will update.
