We moved my friends shanty farther out on the lake today for Saturdays fish derby. We were out from the launch that is on the west side of the bar. We drove the truck out, there were about 5 other trucks on that part of the lake. We had a measured 12" of good ice where we were at but I can't speak for the rest of the lake, didn't see trucks anywhere else on the lake, be careful and bring your ice creepers, very slippery on the glare ice.

Fished Saturday with a buddy and 3 little fellers so a total of 15 tip ups.  Fishing was super slow again.  The place was like a zoo and the ice thickness contributed to the poor fishing.  Every time the ice gets over 10 inches fishing slows down and then you have people doing donuts everywhere the fish seem to shut down.  Trucks all over in by Walkers bay with several permanent shanties.

We dropped my friends shanty off this afternoon, just to get it out there before the storm or whatever happens tonight/tomorrow. Put it off acces #2, west of the bar on the south side. Went out about 200 yards, had 8" of ice. Stopped in the bar and talked to the locals, Sounds like everyone has been avoiding mid lake that was open water 2 weeks ago. Lots of shacks out but no vehicles.

The fishing jamboree is out of the bar in two weeks on the 19th.

Went up over New Years. We spent 3 hours Friday, 9 hours Saturday, 11 hours Sunday, and 6 hours on Monday on the ice. We had tips up and jigging all weekend. We moved around and covered hundreds of feet of shoreline and only iced 1 little bass. We used crappie minnows, shiners, and even tried hot dogs.

Didn't seem like a lot of people were running for flags all weekend.

Fished Sunday and today. Fishing was good yesterday and ok today. 8-9 inches of ice, but use caution as there was open water 2 weeks ago in a large area by the point.

I saw a post requesting info on a rental for this lake and we have a property that matches the request perfectly.  It is a 4 bedroom Lakehouse just outside the lagoon on the lake.  Perfect setup for a group going ice fishing/snowmobiling/ATVing - Newly remodeled, direct lake access, great fishing directly in front, plenty of room, pool table,...  WPL Sportsmans derby is January 19th.

Fished Saturday from 1230 to 630 and little to show.  The worst fishing I have had out there in 4-5 years on early ice.  4-5 inches of ice where we fished, but there is open water to the left of Brad's.
