Does anyone know of any spots near that access that i could walk to cause i dont have a boat. Im willing to hike a couple miles as long as the bite is good.Or of any spots other than Jordan that i could drive to then walk. I live in New Prague and im willing to make the drive...

My buddy and I fished East of the 282 north bridge and west of the access this weekend. The entrance to the access is just before the bridge on the right hand side. Theres a huge sprawling area of no current to the right and to the left of the access and its never busy. About 30 feet out is when the current hits, and its deeper. The bottem is Sandy with nice sized scattered rocks. My buddy caught a 15+ pound carp, and i reeled in a few baby cats. We used night crawlers but they get picked clean of the hook most of the time from the little guys out there. Who knows, maybe try cut up sucker/chub. Im thinking about bringing a can of corn next time cuz Im sick of those nibblin lil'uns.

It's funny, because I've had the best luck at the launch. There is a nice scour hole (25 ft) and it comes up nice near the rocky shoreline.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
