I've heard it's spotty (big surprise!). As with other lakes in the area prior to the snowfall, there were open water spots on the lake and these areas are naturally thinner than the rest that froze up a bit earlier. Now that those spots have froze over it may be tough to tell the difference between 6" and 2" so caution is advised as always.

16 inches is what I found for ice thickness Sunday evening. Full size trucks are the norm driving in every direction out there. Crappies were far and few between with very few takers! Avoid the ball of houses off the south of the north access and you should be able to find a few active fish that are not spooked almost anywhere along the east side transition. Good luck and please share how you faired up afterwards!

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
