Does anyone have an ice report?  I am hoping to get out this weekend if the ice is good.

Good ice, fishing is slow. The gills today where very small. Decent Bass on tip up, and one snake. At least 4 1/2 of ice. Still open water in river channel.

I was out yesterday afternoon and will confirm the numerous pockets of open water.  I would not go anywhere that doesn't have old holes as these areas are the former ice shelf that was there last week.  Any place that doesn't have old holes was likely open water yesterday.  Be careful this spot has changed alot since last week.

If you are thinking of going off of Cherokee tomorrow be careful. A fellow fisherman, i know saw open water not far from shore, in an area that I fished last week. Could skim over tonight and  be deceiving. As for the fishing, last week,I caught none on one day and two on the other. Walked off with nine because three other guys gave me their fish.

I never fished Cherokee but wanted to check it out this winter. Wondering where you access it for ice fishing or what area most guys are fishing. Thanks for any help pointing me in the right direction.
