Yes you can fish either the MI or WI side with either a WI or MI fishing license, but before you take my word for it read and know the regulations on Wisconsin / Michigan boundary waters for the state you're fishing in. AKA if your fishing in Rice Bay which is on the Michigan side read the Michigan regulations on boundary waters and vica versa.

Stay topside,

Big Whiskey

Being a border lake you can fish it with either license.

Ice Depth: 8" Conditions: Snowing Air Temp: 21° - 25° F
After the warm up the ice is still a solid 8 inches. Safe traveling for 4 wheelers and snowmobiles but I would not venture out in a truck. The flags were flying in Rice Bay this weekend. Mostly small northerns but a lot of fun. A few nice walleyes caught on shiners as well on the west shore. Looks like about 5-6 inches of new snow on the ice as we welcome winter back.

Measured between 7-8" base ice yesterday(Sat.). With the 3" fluff snow cover and the single +/- temps for the last 2 weeks we are finally getting some firmer surface. Still saw a couple slushy looking spots running out from the shore nearby, here on the north shore. Safe travels and flying flags to all!

I'm not sure Indian Bay is ready for snowmobile and ATV traffic just yet. I fished out in the middle of the bay on Saturday and Tuesday. Measuring carefully I found significant variations in the ice depth from 4.25" to 7". In addition, this ice did not form up ideally. If you read the report from Dave at Windrift Resort earlier, he states that the first few inches of good ice were covered with slush which eventually froze and tightened up. That's exactly what's out there. I think there could be big trouble in the wrong spot.

It's not that far of a walk. Please be safe.

Mendham, are people driving wheelers and snowmobiles all over the whole lake? I would think the ice is thick enough. Coming up this weekend so hopefully we will be able to drive all over it.

Guests are reporting 6-8 inches of good ice with no slush. Been seeing some snowmobiles and 4 wheelers out on the lake but overall not many people have been out. Some northerns on fat heads outside the weedbed on the west shore.

Any comments regarding ice depth, slush or snow cover at Indian Village?

Ice Depth: 5" Conditions: Partly Sunny
Just got back from a few days at deer camp, and found 5" base ice. This last Sunday only had 2 - 2 1/2" with 2" slush on the surface, but the surface has firmed up and presently(Thanksgiving) there is only 2-3" fluff snow cover.

When I was in college a few years ago, I used to come up to Lammies resort for a week every January with some buddies and used to crush the walleyes every year. This lake is chock full of them. 20-30 flag nights but have to your scouting during the day and be prepared to stick it out late at night.
