Got out on Saturday and fished from noon until about 4. Caught a handful of crappies and missed a few as well along with a few snake Northern. 

Ice thickness was around 16 inches or so. Plenty enough to hold up my truck. I was not the only one driving out there. Saw another 5 vehicles on the ice.

Coming up in two weeks. Staying on the big bay off of Chief Lake. Just curious for info on fishing that area as well as the safety of the ice on chief lake. If it stays cold is it safe for UTV travel?

Ice Fishing is productive in the Hayward Area Lakes Region...ATV or snowmobile travel is safe on most area lakes 10- 14 " Ice, depending on lake...crappies in 22 to 28 feet at Chippewa Flowage, 7 to 13 ft on Nelson Lake...look for deep basins, river channel or stumpy flats....walleyes on rocks, sand bars, deeper weed edges 14-23 ft on Grindstone, L.C.O, and Eau Claire Chain...medium shiner or sucker for tip-ups. -Tom Leahy (local guide in Hayward, WI)

I have never ice fished the chip. Is there any public access where you dont need to walk very far for crappies? Maybe under 1/2 mile?

I think Treeland is closed in the winter. There's a good 12 to 13 inches of ice on the east side. Good crappie / Gill bite going on.
