That is a free floating, triangular ice slab out from the river mouth. Stay away.

I'd give credit to who posted the lake map a month or so ago from the "Sunk" FB page.

I wanted to fish it this year, but did not trust it at any time

OFF Merritt inside the crack, followed the moon shape and ended about 1/5 miles south of Merritt where all the ice is broken up and chunky on the surface. Nothing moved 3 times

Went to the other side of the Big Crack, (outer bridges) off Merritt and was going to cut across to the other side, but decided to go south and try some Battle spots. Just south of the southern bridge on the outside of the Big crack Off Merritt I found what I thought was going to sink me.

There is a "path" in the snow going east west and heads right into the road that skirts the crack going north south on the east/outer side of the crack. If that makes sense.

This is DEEP and WET; I am guessing there is some crack/opening because I dropped in and water was flying and there was slush up to my knee when I got out. Scary stuff.

Lucky some linker was out there with his Ford and I had my strap and clevis ready in about 30 seconds. I wanted out. Out I came and I was back on solid ice. Let this be WARNING> I don't know what's under there, I don't know how safe it will be, but you couldn't see it yesterday and you won't see it with the fresh snow now.

Heads up

Then we went over near the river and worked out that way. until we stopped on the oshkosh reefs

Marked 2 fish in 3 hours.

She's quiet this morning. I didn't hear the grinding sounds I was hearing yesterday out from FDL.

Fished the river today with my insanely beautiful and loved wife. Only fished for about an hour due to a couple of reasons. 1: my wife experienced her first "ice quake" around 3pm. We heard it comming and I told her we'd be alright and 2 seconds later the ice started shaking and shifted a few inches. I said "damn that was a good one" and she replied with " f#$& !!! that scared the s#@$ out of me. Let's get out of here!" Reason 2: we wanted to visit family before they went to work. It was a beautiful day to be on the lake, but the fish weren't cooperating. Didn't mark a thing, so we decided to head out. I'm not going to mention the ice thickness because it varies, and I don't want people to assume what we had means everywhere was that thick and its safe to go where ever you want. Back out at it tomorrow to hook up with some hungry eyes.

Tight lines \m/

Had a great day of fishing off Brothertown, 4 miles out. Whitebass were on fire(3 pails)had 9 walleyes,2 keepers and 3 sand pike that went back. #5 clown rap which by the end of the day was stripped of all its color. No meat needed. Fish were tight to the bottom untill the clouds came in. Ice and road seemed to be in good shape.

Stay away from the mouth bvan54 & others if you don't know the area. Even though we have a couple days of cold in the forecast, the runoff has started and will undercut the existing ice very quickly, regardless of air temps.

7:30-2PM today 4 miles off Bro'town. Started south of road, moved 3 times then north of road and found whites (dozen) little 'eyes (6) and a nice sand pike - all released. Fish came on #2gold hammered pimple and #3 clown rap with minn. heads. Had fun when a load of bait fish came through and once the rap cleared the 10 ft. mark of bait fish it was hit. Lots of lookers and drive bys.

Around 3-330 the ice really moved and made a ton of noise. Scared the crap out of us. Can anyone report more on this? Where did the heave(s) move.

Tried to get off the lake last night at Calumet County Park but there was a fresh crack 100-150 yards off shore with water on top. Didn't try to cross it, drove down to Stockbridge instead.
