I would recommend calling Daves Bait in Crystal Lake or Hermanns Lowlife Bar.  Either one can give you an update.  I know that a few weeks ago Hermann's had to cancel their ice fishing event due to the low ice conditions.

Did a drive by last weekend, didn't see a soul out there. The ice looked okay. I might give it a go Saturday.

I can concur with E, was out there from 7:30am to 1pm.  Had two bites in total no fish caught.  Could see to the bottom where i was at about 5 ft.  Saw at least 50 fish swim by but none of them would bite.  Used waxies....

Fished 7-noon. Very slow worst outing of the year for us. Moved several times one here, one there. Fishing improved as the day went on. Surprised at the condition of the ice, Clear 10 inches solid! Easy access with shorelines frozen.

Good Luck!

Went out about 930 and stayed till 130 pm. caught a few small bluegills and crappies with 2 small keeper crappie. Best fishing was on the weed edge at the T channel. Sight fishing in 3-4 fOW. Did see a northern and a bass swim by. All in all not a bad start to hard water season.

Fished for a few hours late morning to early afternoon today.  Tried several spots that I normally do and only one yielded any fish. More mid-day crappie than I usually catch but most were on the small side so they're still swimming. More dink gills than normal too.  Very light bite. Didn't have spikes. Orange tear drop with waxies pinched in half caught all. Nothing on minnows. Got checked by the DNR who pointed out some deer that were slipping and struggling to cross the channel. Neat to see. Good luck, all.
