Ice Depth: 17" Conditions: Raining Air Temp: 41° - 45° F
Yesterday I measured 17" here on north shore. All snow cover is gone. Our shoreline is already starting to open. With the rain that is starting, the access points may be iffy, and the ice itself may start honeycombing/weakening. Definitely would not drive any trucks out from now on. Only ATV's or walking.

Ice Depth: 17" Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 21° - 25° F
Had some guests that drove a Gator from here on north shore to Indian Bay and definitely found some slush areas. Got stuck twice but were able to make it over and back. A good 4x4 truck should be able to make it around but would keep a shovel handy. Snow depth varies around 12 ", but once the holes are drilled you may be standing in 8-12" water/slush. FYI : The LOL Kids' Ice Fishing Jamboree, last Sunday in February, off the west shore boat landing of LVD. Open to 18yrs. and younger. Sun, February 28, 9am – 3pm On Lac Vieux Desert off the West Shore Boat Landing. No cost, free bait, food and lots of give-aways.

Conditions: Night Time
Trucks have been driving off Indian Bay access and west shore, but ATV travel is limited unless you have chains, and even then you may get hung up unless staying on the main trail. Snow depth is approx. 12 - 15". More slush spots are starting to appear in different areas all over. A shovel is advisable, but keep in mind, do you want to shovel or fish?

Ice Depth: 14" Conditions: Night Time
Here on the north shore there is currently 14" base ice. Areas of slush have started showing up for the last week, especially around Duck Point. With the snowstorm predicted for Tues.-Wed., mobility may be limited to snowmobiles as the amount of snow may hinder ATV travel. Trucks have been driving off west shore and Indian Bay for over a week.

Can anyone give an updated ice report? I'm coming up on Wednesday and am curious about the thickness of the ice.

I'll be heading up this next Thursday with 15 guys. I have never fished this lake before. Is there an areas I need to be aware about? Or general areas to target. I really hate hitting a new lake blind. Any help is appreciated.
