Most of the lake just froze over last Wednesday/Thursday I believe. Then we got the snow which insulated it.

Drove by Sunday and i could see many wet spots so be careful if your checking ice out there.....F.P.

Boat launches still too iced in for me on Friday. close to 3 inches of ice that I wasn't in the mood to chop through. Went south to Shabbona lake instead where I knew launches were open.

Thanks for the responses everyone.looks like a slow warmup tomorrow so, I might prep boat tomorrow and go out on Friday.(seems someone put the nice comfy boat seat on his ice shack...) that'll give a little time for ice to soften and weaken. I'll bring waders and a chisel with in case I need to break ice up.

Shouldn’t be an issue by the weekend. 47 and sunny on Saturday . Any breeze should break up what’s left.

If you want to put a little time in the break away the ice around the launch, you’ll be fishing from your boat

Thanks Vex,

 You actually posted while I was typing up my query. Now that's quick! Did you happen to notice if the boat launch was open?

I'm going to try to fish pierce or olson in some fashion tomorrow. Planning on bringing light ice tackle as well as light open water tackle..... Unless somebody here tells me it's wide open. Because then I'm bringing out my boat and using the flasher and short rods! I'll be able to at least pretend I'm on ice..... Still hoping that someone can give me an update on conditions that has driven through the park yesterday or today. Just wondering what to expect. If no answers I will post what I find once I have a look for myself. Thanks,

  BF
