People are just starting to move out. Main bay has little ice on it still. Sand I believe has more and I heard 10" near pine point. At least that is where the rentals are moving to. I would be careful anywhere on walker bay still.

Be careful,

Talked to a guy today that drove his wheeler out by sand point, walked another 50 feet and put his chisel through with one stab. crazy.gif

Up in that area there is 6" in some spots and 1 1/2 in some spots.

There was a Suburban down on shingabee today. That guy had a death wish... Talked to some spearers that said they were finding anywhere from 9" to a foot down there.

They are driving out by pine point, thats probably where I would go this weekend.

BE CAREFUL

just got back from leech. fishing was slow did manage 24 keeper perch for the three of us and released 29" pike. the ice was not the best a few slush pockets that made things a little interesting. the first spot we fished had 10", we then moved closer to the point and found only 6.5".

but still a fun day on the ice.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
