Tried fishing bobber and worms for gills and crappies today in Foxtail, too cold. Crappies were going crazy before ice out but nothing today in the same area. Nothing happening.

Also should be noted that lake is posted No Wake for whole lake. Talked with one property owner who said the lake is almost 20" above high water mark. Looks like Lake will be No Wake whole summer or until the lake drops 12". There are houses and shorelines sandbagged on the lake. There is one boat house floating and tied to some trees.

Typically folks didn't need permits to install a water mover to keep their dock from freezing up. Once that water mover/ice eater/aerator is pointed horizontally instead of vertically it requires a permit. It actually falls under the DNR dredging permit. 

Im guessing there is no permit for that ice eater but it is still pointed horizontally.

Yup, I've called them too and they have notified the owner's of the issue.  Couple things wrong here:  1. Un-marked open water caused by aerator (owner's liability if someone falls in). 2. Infringing on neighbors or public's ability to access ice from their properties as stated in DNR regulations on Aerators.  

DNR says to call Sheriff's office, Sherriff's office says to call DNR.  Best guess is to call the local representative and get on next town board meeting agenda.

That's exactly right about the closed landing and open water. The DNR is taking a hands off approach. When i spoke to them they directed me towards the township and blamed the open water on wind and warm weather. What's their excuse now?

The public landing on Silver Lake at Hwy 21/73 is closed because the DNR issued a permit to a lake home owner for an aerator. This allows the person to leave his pier in year round.  Unknown what info he provided DNR to get this permit.  The aerator maintains open water creating a hazard to children & adults who enjoy ice skating, snowmobiling, & ice fishing. The aerator also caused open water at the public landing forcing the Marion Township to close the public landing for safety reasons.  The DNR should admit this permit was issued in error and created a hazard to the public and took away the right of public access to the lake.  DNR says to contact Marion Township about the closing when DNR issued the permit causing the water at the landing.  This is not right or fair to the public.  Maybe next year all lake owners will get a DNR aerator permit and close all the public landings.

Foxtail is fine. Getting close to 12 inches. 

Not sure about the rest of the lake. North west landing is still open water and will be all year.

Any update on ice thickness on the lake in or in fox tail?

I was trying to be informative, not create a panic. Education of the situation helps. From there I guess everyone needs to make their own conclusions. 

I wouldn't worry about chemical treatments done 3 years ago as far as eating fish. You're more likely to be introduced to higher level of chemicals by putting your golf balls in your pocket after it rolled on the green!
