Is there anyway to walk out a mile or 2 once ice gets thick enough.  And by that I mean how does a person get over the crack that is normally crossed via car or atv bridge? I would like to get off on Merrit.  Thanks for your help!

Was fortunate to fly a cross country flight out of KUES TO KOSH and had my dad snap a few pictures while I flew. The south end of the lake appeares to be completely covered but I am (obviously) unable to tell ice thickness from the air, so please be careful as there were some small open pockets of water.

Went off on the west side solo tonight...

There are several large cracks running to the NE. Managed to cross one crack and made it out about 250 yards from shore. Was in approx 4.5 FOW.


Had 3-4” of ice. Had my 3 man shack out.

Got on some perch and gills in about 2 feet of water. 

Jig with waxies. Took 10 perch home. Little bit of sorting, few gills but they were small.

Only fished for about an hour. Went from fish every few minutes to nothing once it got dark.
