Out of Malmo about 3 miles still had 8" and only found 1 slush pocket with the sled. Did see one ridge building but looked frozen.

Just got back from the north end. Had 9 - 13 inches of ice. Fishing was slow.

Fished the north end rocks fri and sat and was very slow. fish were down there just didn't seem real hungry. ice varied, there was about 8 inches .5 miles out where we were but the slush was pretty bad. talked to a CO at the landing and he said it was real slow from everyone he talked to and the ice varied from 5-12".

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
