Thanks for the ice report.  Due to cold weather I decided to wait until next weekend.  With the extreme cold as of lately im wondering if a snowmobile would be a possiblity???  If anyone has any info or advice on this it is much appreciated!

Thanks and I will report upon my return!

Tight lines and stay safe on the ice everyone!

I drove down the frontage road a week ago. The lake was locked up. The only open water was a small portion were the creek enters the lake. I saw tracks in the snow that went out a couple hundred feet In two spots. Not much activity a week ago but it did look like someone fished. I didn't go on to the ice to check the thickness. You might be able to fish this next weekend, have a backup plan. Trout is ushally the last to freeze.

Has anyone checked the ice? Thinking about trying over New Years weekend. I’m open to fishing either north or south, I would guess north freezes earlier. Thanks for any info, and stay safe on the ice!!!

Anyone been out on Trout?  With mayfly hatches booming all over been thinking of taking my 5 year old and his 6 year old cousin out there after the big smallmouth for some C&R rod bending fun.  Any advice?  PM if you'd like.

Got a few whitefish in one spot yesterday then went checking out the numerous open holes from Sunday. I'm curious what other people fish....ended up heading back to the first spot to fill my limit.

 I like the tops of humps or flat spots on drops in 50' to 65' to minimize the dead zone in the locator screen....but some places seemed full of ciscos higher up in the water. I released those.

Anyone have any thoughts on releasing smaller whitefish caught deep?

Nope, That wasn't us. I saw that group out there. We saw the shoves by the narrows, but didn't go very close. The ice sure was cracking and creaking.

Surveyor was that your group that I gave a couple whiteys to?

 the ice by cathedral point was impassable.  It was perfectly fine in Friday,a shove started on Saturday and totally blocked by  Sunday night....also found a few areas with significantly less ice than others.  Still plenty but closer to 14" than the 24" that's out in the middle

did decent on walleyes and caught some whites what little I fished for them. Caught a few more after I gave those away and this morning I'm dedicating to whites before I head home

Ice conditions were great today. About 24 inches of hard ice. (Not measured) I drove the ATV out from the Landing on the North lake. We got a few whitefish and a few cisco fishing the steep drops in 55 to 70 FOW. Nice day out there!

How's the ice holding up?  Any Cisco/whitefish action?
