Was wondering if the ice conditions near middle inlet were going to be safe enough to fish this coming saturday? Not from the area so i haven't been able to do any scouting and was just looking for feed back on ice conditions in the area. Thanks

Was out today for an hour or so. Drilled about 20 holes. Solid 8" in every hole. Was on the shallow northeast side. Deepest I hit was 6'. Couple guys out with 4 wheelers and shacks.
I stopped by the county park on the south shore this afternoon just to check it out. There was a good size ice heave right at the landing with some thin ice like the heave just happened. About 75 yards out there were two full size trucks, one with a trailer, but no one around. I think they were "ice boaters" because I could see 4 ice boat sails parked down towards Timberline.
Very strange, did not see anyone fishing anywhere, yet two trucks out there, Also, from where I was standing it looked like the northeast side of the lake still had open water. I didn't have an auger with me to check thickness.
