Just was wondering if after this recent cold snap if it would be safe at all to walk out on south asylum.  I know about a week ago shorelines had really opened up.  Thought Id check to see what conditions are now,  Thanks still trying to get rid of that ice fish itch.

Fished out on the bay this afternoon.  Couldn't get much going other than small perch.  Ice was good everywhere I went with about 8 to 12 inches.  Obviously some of the shoreline had some bad spots.  Fished 5 to 8 ft of water.

Drove down by the bay after work today.  Saw some tracks walking out, was just checking to see if anyones been fishing out there and how safe ice is.  Thinking of walking out in morning.  Good fishing all!

The parking is at/for south asylum that I know of via Sherman road. Unless you can get through by the insane asylum and drive down picnic point trail and park in there to access north asylum. The point by the lighthouse is the divider so all of the bay pretty much up to crack is technically south asylum

First time Fishing this bay.  Got out before sun up with my dad.  We fished from the light House to the mud after hopping the crack, which is getting very soft in most spots.  It sounded like a creaky floor walking near it.  My dad caught a dozen dink perch and I caught 0.  Lots of slush although some ice was hard on top.  I would consider all the ice I drilled honey combed.  It was all chunks.  Still at  14"  or so in most spots with sturgeon holes wide open.

Out this afternoon in the bay.  Fished in 8 to 9 ft of water.  All I could muster up were  mostly small perch and trout perch...Ice overall was decent considering the  weather.  Obviously losing its strength but still a fair amount there.  Shorelines are open in a few areas.  Nice to be icefishing in 60 degree weather but sad to see season coming to an end so soon.  Only a few people in bay and a few  out on lake with wheelers.  Good fishing All!

The whole North Asylum shoreline is pretty much all private residences. I can see one firelane that leads to the water. Where is all this parking you speak of? Honest question.
