0 for 1 this morning on a nice walleye lost at the bottom of the hole. Only fish we hooked all day. Marked maybe 5 others. Water is super murky right now and thinking that has something to do with the slow bite. Couldn't get out to the reef where I typically fish due to the crack. Talked to several others with the same report, 0. Took my fourwheeler out without issue, solid 6" of ice. Cracks were moving alot today. I'll be waiting a couple weeks before I head back out.
Anyone coming out today, there is a crack that opened and skimmed over, luckily I hopped off and checked it before trying to cross it. Took one step and stuck my left leg into it up to my knee. Lat/Long are below. We couldnt cross it with my wheeler. Otherwise trip out was fine, punched 2 holes and had 6" in both. The open crack is roughly 2/3 of the way out to the reef.
Update: 10:45 crack just shifted quite a bit theres now a 2" gap open between the sheets.

We fished out of Volks Launch today from about 8 am til 1pm. Went out past the very rough ice where it started to smooth a little. Started to auger in what we thought was going to be about 6 inches...punched through in about a nanosecond! We were shocked to see 2 inches of ice! We backtracked about 75 yards and drilled again...3 inches! We fished there but felt uneasy the whole time. Caught 0 and saw 0 fish. Like EURYOOPER said, extremely thin ice and few to zero fish! I would advise not to go out from Volks. I'ts not worth it.....stay safe. This is what the ice looked like in some areas.

Weekend report: fished off Volks yesterday and today 7-noon. 2 whites yesterday 3 today. Marked maybe a dozen each day. Ones that did hit were very aggressive and slammed the bait, others would seem to just swim by. Talked to a state biologist/fish report lady at the ramp leaving today and sounded like the same story from Volks clear to Sugar Creek, slow and very few fish. Access is a jumbled mess. Ice depth highly variable, we fished on 3-4". Spudded our way out yesterday. Several small cracks but nowhere for the ice to go. Cold should have it building all week and I expect ATV travel next weekend. Tight lines if anyone makes it out this week and stay safe.
