Measured 12" hard ice last evening @ west end in 2 places.. Full size trucks, suvs pulling shacks and trailers all over.  Always avoid inlets, outlet, spring marked with branches cpl hundred yrd from N shore across from Boat Club on the shallow flat.


Cpl rockies, 1 nice gill the few minutes I dropped spike down at twilight. Just got out at sunset to help move a shack and measure, will try harder next few days.

Pretty dead today. Running tip ups no flags yet. Really tough walking if you have creapers I would bring them. I did not go too far out as I am recovering from knee surgery and almost fell a few times better luck next time. Thanks for the sharing of information on here.

She is pretty tough,,,and stubborn. Not bothered by cold. Only got pissed off, gave up when dust of snow on glare ice got too slick to steer, ended up hitting the shore few times.

Would think overcast, south wind, approaching snowfront, the fish be biting? Not much where I was. 2 tiny perch, few tiny gills, 1 @ 8 1/2". 1 hammerhandle and 2nd tippup spooled empty. Ice is best ever, nice skating and travel but soo hard creepers won't bite so, be careful. Little snow will help?

Taco, I do. And the ptuna boats that run over my bobbers, boats that drive too close to swimming rafts and docks. Placed bouys in some spots so, boaters can see what 100 feet distance looks like on water. People are starting to call warden and sherriff but, nobody wants to see tickets handed out yet. Might be time for tickets? Rather than new rules imposed, better to enforce what is already on the books.


Truck going by at 63ft doesn't bother me in 45fow even though ice crackling but, go by that close to someone else  might be a problem. No reason when half mile of room to other shore. Better yet, if going by, stop by for visit. Door open, shack warm, might be a beer in the slush too.
