Accessed lake from Pleasant Springs Sunday morning. Steam coming off the lake indicated areas of open water somewhere across the lake towards Quams landing and also in front of the state park boat launch. ATV travel seems to be OK in most areas, but as of Sunday there was some dangerous spots out there.

Fished in front of state park in 5-10' of water and measured about 8.25" of ice. Fished in 26' of water off Williams Point and measured 8"

Drove around part of the lake today, Barbers Bay area and South shore. Barbers Bay looked like it had an area that had just froze, no snow on the ice at all, so if you're fishing the derby next week in Barbers Bay watch out for some thin ice spots. Also out in the middle I could see two wide open spots, about 50 yards wide and several hundred feet long, approximately in the deepest water areas. If it freezes overnight then we get the snow on Tuesday that'll be pretty dangerous next weekend! The rock pile had shacks on it and I could see a few shacks on the other side of the lake near the Pleasant Springs launch, but I did not drive over that way to see if they we're out deep or close to shore. I saw a few portables out from amundson's landing as well but did not stop to talk to anyone. Best of luck to everyone fishing the derby next week, but be careful out there!

Is the fishery still a go next weekend?  I haven't heard/seen any updates.  I would assume it is a go with the cold snap coming.

Tried for perch today with little success.  Marked some but they are tight lipped.  Tried plastics, spikes, waxys and combinations of all.  Huge areas of open water in the middle.  If it skims over before the snow, someone will go through.  Be safe!  I wont be back.

There were giant areas of open water on Sunday out in the middle that would be skimmed over now. Would not advise anyone to run the lake with machines till after a few more cold days .
