Just curious if there are any keeper size panfish on this lake?
26° - 30° F
There was about 2 inches when you first go out on the dump side, and it was a little creaky, but passable over the shallow water there (stay to the right if you're going to try it). Once you get to the fishing area, there's a little over 3 inches now. Others had tipups out, bass biting pretty good. Saw one 29" northern caught. Slow bluegills on the jig pole, and a couple bass hitting that as well.
How much ice is there on the lake
Any crappie or gill bite on the lake? Headed up this weekend. Any help would be great!

Fished on the Kmart side a couple of hours this morning. 2 crappies and 1 bluegill. No other bites. No one else out on this side. Looked like about a dozen people out on the Hwy 12 side, so assuming they're doing better over there. Or maybe it's just a shorter walk through the snow and slush.

Fished in 5 to 6' of water off highway 12/16 boat landing for about 5 hours. Only 1 small crappie. Not marking anything. If you do mark a fish on bottom, the don't bite. Very very slow. Even in shallows they are not getting anything. Had 2 tip ups closer to shore and not a single flag.
Still solid 6-7" of ice off boat landing off highway 12/16. Nice 22" largemouth caught on tip up in shallows. Caught some nice size bluegills on waxies but you really need to work for them. Fished in 2-3' of water. No crappies. Need to fish deeper 6-7'.
