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

By not agressive you mean hard to catch but still caught fish or just no bites at all.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
