The water from the previous day had trickled through the ice. We did hit a couple of pools on Friday where it was 6"s deep so hmmm. Had gusts on Friday I'd estimate at 35mph. Son had off so took him and he was throwing shovels on water into the air an it would land 15yards down range. Kids!

Ice is in good shape today, majority of water was gone. We fished on the 35' breakline and did pretty good and had our limit of whities by noon.

Talked to friends who tried deeper but didn't work out.

Dropped my eye glasses down the hole and kid asked me later why I wasn't furious. Told him being out there w/ him on his b-day made everything else irrelevant.

Good luck and have fun!

Ice was fine up by boni pt today but as I was leaving, the top of the ice was covered with about 3 inches of water on it. It was nerve wrecking riding back with the atv. Drop by volks landing and it looked the same. Unless the temps drop below freezing. It will be very sloppy out there. Good luck and be safe!

Went to Sugar Creek t0day and no cracks, very rough and cold going out from the 2 fisherman they were fishing in 35+ feet of water with little to show for. They went straight off where everyone was because that's where they thought the fish were. Had another customer that came in and limited out in 10' of water north of Sugar Creek and he was back in less than 3 hours. Our friend Bob came up from south of Chaudiors Dock on a snowmobile and had to dodge shoves but cruised right along on a snowmobile. Fished in 27 feet of water southwest of sugar Creek and got only 6 fish in 4 hours on Monday went back on Tuesday and got his limit in 3 hours. Have to remember the ice is never safe and use your own judgement, and wouldn't be driving your vehicle out of Chaudiors Dock or Sugar Creek.

The crack is about 30-40 yards out. It's very easy to see since it crosses the whole shore. Because of the cold front, I hope it froze over, but haven't been up there yet.

Thanks Cha. How far off shore is the crack you are referring to? I know there were reports of several cracks here. Sent you a pm but not sure if your messenger is on.

I don't believe it will ever be safe to drive out this year on Sugar Creek. The last time I was out was last Saturday and the ice was only 10-11 inches thick. which is still a no-no for me. I need 1 ft and 6 in or higher to feel comfortable to get my truck onto the ice. I suggest walking or using an ATV/Snow Mobile at the most. Fishing was well on Saturday, got my limit in 1 hour. Very active fish, but this week will be a great change because my cousins went on Monday and barely got 10 in 5 hours. Just be careful and make wise decisions. Also there is still that 12 inch crack that were already a problem for most ATV users.

What's up w that black dog at the landing? He barked at me when I was unloading then looked me in the eye, lifted his leg and peed on my shack. I had to laugh...there were 2 new cracks w open water about a foot wide from landing out to 30ft. Whitefish were active during the storm. No perch.
