Call Henry's bait at 312-225-8538.  They're on Canal St. downtown and are pretty accurate.

I moved to Wisconsin, so I don't know how often I may get out to Montrose.

Thank you both for the info guys, I greatly appreciate the quick responses. I'm thinking I won't even chance it, you both seem knowledgeable about the harbor and I'll take your word for it.

Whitebass Monday before the rain it was sketchy 6-7 inches. On the good ice. People who don't know the harbor Easily would have gotten wet.

I suspect it's only five now, of accessable, and rotten till maybe Friday morning for who knows how long, but accessibility will be the problem.  Typically the North side of docs we're good access points... But rains ruined that.  Only reason the ice was accessible thos past weekend was because the sun wasn't strong enough or out to destroy the south end of docks., Until this Monday

I fished the ice Sunday. Don't trust it. Fish off the end of the open docks. Or go north and spear a Sturgeon. Poygan has been hit or miss. White bass have been good. Winnabago also.

Does anyone know the actual ice thickness in the harbor today? I'm looking to get on the ice one more time this season and would prefer not to drive 3 hrs to WI if I can get on the ice in the harbor. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Also, to sustain the salmon and trout fishery most fish are stocked and they are stocked at a size that is to big for small 3-6" perch to consume to negatively effect salmon and trout populations. One last thing alewives are a fish that utilizes open water and perch utilize more near shore habitat and the bottom so because they utilize two different habitats perch predation on alewives is most likely very low. The perch most likely only prey on alewives when they come near shore to spawn.
