So is it time to get the ice shack off the lake with the warm temps and rain coming or is it safe to leave with a cool off coming mid week.

Fished Saturday and had 13" of ice, 12" last night when I pulled off, and 9" this afternoon around 2 pm. The ice was clear,strong, and quiet for the most part but a lot of standing water and some weep holes opening up to be 18". The actual fishing has been slow other than sunset to 6 pm has been alright.

I was out on 12/1 and there was about 8 inches of ice in the spot I was in. The fishing was kind of slow. Has anyone been accessing the lake from the boat launch with atvs? I was wondering if there is another spot to get on with an atv besides the boat launch?
I was out on Mill 12/26 and it was still kind of sketchy. Ice was about 3.5 inches about 30-40 yards from shore. I decided not to risk it. I am sure the last couple days of cold helped. Anyone been out on this area of the lake? - Thanks
I walked the lake from the public launch to just past stumpy bay, the ice was 5.5 to 6 inches from the launch to about halfway through stumpy bay then the ice was 7 to 8 inches. The ice was very quiet in every hole I drilled except one that caused some cracking.
