How's the ice looking looking to get out on Saturday
MOON PHASE (12%)
26° - 30° F
The ice is plenty thick out there. My report says 7 inches but that's just to be safe. Its probably more. Yesterday, yes some of the banks were wet. In fact I stepped on it and my foot went through. It was slush, no ice underneath. Once you get to the actual ice it's fine. There are pallets thrown down at the bottom of the steps to act as a bridge.
As for a fishing report:
I caught around 20 crappies yesterday evening. Nothing over 9 inches. They were a little finicky. Seems like every hole has fish in it. One 6 inch bluegill. I didn't run tip ups but I saw a few go off.

Plenty of ice and it froze back up nicely by the stairs so you don't have to walk through a foot of water anymore to get on the ice.
