It all depends what you consider fishable ice? Am hoping to be on a small lake this weekend hehehe. If temps stay down starting on tesday I have hope. Any way ya you should be fine a week before Christmas it most likly wouldn't be thick aenough for driving out there but If I were to guess 4 wheelers will be running around.

Yeah, 41. I was pulling an old snag out of the way, and the water did not feel all that cold to me. I had to run up to the garage for the temp gauge and see what it really was.

My boat's pickled, but I could have her sea worthy in an hour or so...

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
