Drove by a Long Lake earlier this morning 2 guys out there Off Wilson roadi
A few small ponds near McHenry are also on there way. Cant wait
Hey pike was this anywhere near Grayslake ??
Went around looking for safe ice today and saw lots around 2” but I was able to find a shallow pond with around 4” and a backwater spot that had close to 5”. Didn’t fish but will soon... lake county il
Everything around the crystal lake il area is slush ice. The snow melted the 3/4 inch of ice we had and now it's about 4 inch of firm slush and you cannot walk on it. Good thing is that the cold will freeze that 4 inch of slush crap into 1 thick layer of ice. Should be good by mid week this coming week. Hardwater man- the UP/ northern lower Michigan looks awesome.plenty of ice and fish up there. I like fishing the UP for walleye and pike. Nice pics
Checked some ponds in lake county and saw 2-2.5”. Snow will screw things up though. Maybe Sunday or Monday we’ll get some safe ice in Illinois
I sure hope so traveling 5 hrs for fish is starting to get old
