I went to French and there seemed to be a good solid 3.5-5 inches all spots we checked. Some snow on the lake with a little crush on top. There were a few spots where you did hit a inch or two of slush.

Overall the ice seemed fairly good.

Just make sure to watch this early ice as there are some slushy areas and with the snow cover its hard to see the ice in some spots.

watch yourself on french, i was just out there today. Most area is 3-5 but we were pollin around lookin for spots and theres spots where we hit thru in one or two hits. Another spot my buddy didnt even get a half turn on a hand auger and broke thru, very spotty lots of pressure ridges. where ever the snow changes the ice thickness changes as well. Also not clear ice so it does have its flaws in it.

Has anyone been out on french yet? I was out on Mazaska on Sunday and there was around 7-10" of ice depending on where you went. Didn't have much luck though.

sheldonrocks,

Did you go out through the public launch off of 21? I suppose like most lakes there's a good 2-3 inches of snow on top.

Yeah, we went off the public access on 21. There are pockets of snow/slush on the lake that are a few inches deep. There were about six house out there when we were there, but everyone was on the move.....they didn't seem to be having much luck either. frown.gif

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      Oh sure.... I remember ya..    Birchwood is a nice place too..  I am sure we will be seeing ya this weekend. We will be sitting on the docks during the afternoon so if you see us out swing on over. I have a green Lund Rebel with a 50 Merc...

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
