You lose 1 inch of ice per 24 hours of 50 degree cloudy day... The disruption is not the temperature but the wind, the ponds will be fine, large bodies that have large waves will break up, but not melt.

According to the forecast  the melt weather is only 24 hours long from 5pm Christmas to 5 pm Monday.. then back to the low 20s.

Only lake Michigan harbors will break

Does anyone think some of the smallest lakes will survive the warm weather approaching us this week? If there is 6in on the lakes how much would be lost? Thanks

Went to my local will county hotspot and had a great day.  Every bass we caught was over three pounds.  Caught eight bass and multiple small bluegill.  Ice was in the 6-8 inch range.

Chaterine was skimmed over monday morning by 10 am the wind was ripping that up,didn't even look today ,thier may be fishable ice out there ,in the bays and places protected from the wind but you can't tell the fishable ice from the thin ice with the snow on it,and the wind well break up walkable ice if it can get under it,don't fish alone or try fishing without a spud bar and you need to use it dragging a spud bar in a sled is just another thing to lose when the ice goes under your feet between the wind and coming snow it may be new years before you can fish without your rearend puckering up if not getting wet and NEVER FORGET THEY AIN'T NO ICE THAT IS SAFE 100% Stupid thing won't let me check no not a fish report
