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.

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)
