I wasnt going to hit any oxbows or floodplain ponds because im not familiar with them and I assume most are too shallow. I want to fish the river itself.

I went to Wetlands a month ago. I only made it to the first ice in front of parking lot. Walked around and drilled about 10 holes. Plenty of ice.  Never found more than 2 feet of water. Too much snow to venture back further to other ponds as there were no snowmobile tracks packing anything down. Snow would be worse now. I drove up past Bottoms and Pec Forest Preserve, but did not know where to park for shortest walk to Oxbow and ponds. Again, more snow now, so it will be tough walking. Any idea what pond it deepest? Do they hold any panfish?

Rare day off tomorrow would love to see a flag go up, pull a pike through a hole, dehook, and slip her back tnrough the hole headfirst. 

That said anybody have any clue whether roads are open at Pec Wetlands or Pec Bottoms? Carefully assess the ice and if safe Id pop some holes and take a skunk like a man.

I'm interested in launch at the boat ramp is Shirland and I am curious what the depth is there and any of the known hazards. I'm not looking for spots just looking for a new place to explore and learn. I'll be launching a Alumacraft 165

Thanks for any info.
