I have the same report as trouble28 does for Elysian. A solid 7 inches approx 200-300 hundred yards from shore. 3-5 inches of snow on the lake.

Ended up on German and Madison to day.

German - 5" to 10" of ice staight out from boat ramp. Took the wheeler out. Might have been pushing it - but - owell

Madison - took the wheeler along shore and then pulled portables out towards the narrows. Mostly 5 to 8" of ice, but did find a few spots under snow of only 2 -3 inches.

Be smart and Be safe!!!!!!!!!!

Both lakes VERY SLOW fishing
