Fishing portion of the derby is cancelled, a couple machines and a permanent went through today. Stay safe and use a Spud or drill a lot of holes, bring a buddy, spikes, rope, something! I did Mark ice just under 2 in a couple spots.

Most of the ice is 5-8" but the hole between the pump house and island is very shady at a little under 2" with a lot water and slush on top. If you start feeling slush under your feet be sure to check the ice before going further.
I know my buddy was out over the weekend right by HWY V and he was on 3-4”
Not sure what time or where I will be yet going to be a last minute decision. Have to get bait that morning so probably hit the ice around 11. I’ll keep an eye out for you. Easiest way to spot me will be my fIance in her bright pink ice suit! Otherwise we will be in a big grey Cabelas pop up
As of last Friday, the north side of the main lake only had about 1 inch at the end of the pier. I haven't checked since then.
I'll be out Friday as well, I'll be the tall guy with DeWalt drill auger and army green pop out shack if ice is good. What time you going? Would be nice to have someone else around just in case.
Ice should be in great shape for the derby this weekend! I will be out on it Friday morning checking it out so I will update then. I know I heard 3-4" over the past weekend from several people that were out so hoping I can get my quad and permanent out by Saturday!
On the ice if and when it's safe. That's about it
