Pictures from Oak Park at about 10:30am on February 3rd 2017. If it looks like water, it is water.  Shore looked good, didn't get out and check the ice thickness. One shack out - see picture.

Fished the Bay this morning for a few hours. I fished 10-16' and the ice was 6-7". However there is still open water farther east and north from the lounge.

Pretty slow.  Very cold even with shelter so I didn't move around much.

Thanks for the advice, I purchased a spud bar this fall. I'll be certain to use it

Any real ice depth info would be helpful. I couldnt imagine after these temps that it would be too unsafe. Of course there is always risk involved.

Fishingguy76,

    I'd be real careful on Pistakee right now, with the current that flows through there and the warmer temps recently, I would spud my way out there.  Should be ok with the colder temps by next week.

Hi folks,


I am still new to this ice fishing thing, I love it though. Thank you all for your help and advice so far.


I've heard that postage bay has good bluegill fishing in it, I fished the bay two winters ago and only ever found white bass (small), some catfish, drum and an occasional crappie (nice size though).


i typically went in at oak park and headed to the south a bit but stayed in 10-14 FOW. I have a camera soni could see the large schools of drums and cats come through. Amazingly large schools.


could anyone go be me any help on finding gills on this water? I want to try someplace other than Channel.


thabks in advance for any and all advice.
