Tried to head out today but the launch is shot. Thin layer of ice that can’t support weight. Most of the shore looks to be the same. Still one permanent out there though. Went to Little Cedar instead.
Ice is obviously very slick right now with no snow cover but plenty thick. just want to remind folks that it's going to be crowded out there today so watch your speed please.
There is a 25 mph speed limit posted at the public launch, but even that's pretty fast.
Keep in mind that the ice flexes and you create waves when you drive fast.
Okay off my soapbox now. Have a good time out there a root for me to catch the big fish!

Took part in the Bark Lake Fisheree. Had a great time, as just watching all the different stuff on the lake was entertaining. Only caught one little bluegill, but was still pretty excited about it. I didn't win. I think someone caught a 5 pound pike to win.

does anyone know if the derby is going on this weekend? and if so could someone lead me in a direction to get on some fish. Never fished the lake or if you want to fish with me id appreciate it. I have all the gear just have to drive north because all the derbies got cancelled cause I'm from northern Illinois. Thanks again.
