I just drove down there and there was a group of 4 guys making their way across,I hope they have lifejackets on cause they seemed to be standing kinda close to each other.Its still thin but I think there maybe around 3 inches out there by now.I may venture out tomorrow but Im not gonna be crossing over to the sconny side just yet.

That was me. Couple of us went out there yesterday.

Ice was generally 3 - 5 inches. But..... spud your way out. Couple of spots I hit with my Ice Saw went right through with one stab. That was only 2 to 2 1/2 inches. This was in areas where the snow was heavier. BE CAREFUL!!! Fishing report. Lots of lookers, 1 crappie caught - 10 1/2 inches. I ate it last night!!!

      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.
