i'm gonna head out this evening, anyone know what the weather has done to the ice lately. still driveable? how thick? is there any snow left or is it glaze ice?

just for clarification on portables, you can still have a portable on the ice, you just can't leave it overnight correct?

hope fishing has been well.

yep, answered my own question:

After the date when ice or fish houses or shelters must be removed, portable shelters may be placed on the ice and used from one hour before sunrise to midnight, but only if there is an open fishing season on the lake. Storing or leaving fish houses or dark houses on a public access is prohibited.

You'll find them in all the holes. Lots of dinks out there for everybody. Felt like going so I packed up and left. Pretty cloudy water. Did well on neon orange tiger jigs tipped with plastic. Had a second one with some tiny crappie minnows deadsticked. It was a good day to waste an afternoon.

I really like those neon jigs. Check them out in the Outdoor Pro Store

As of 3/13, I drove my truck out there. The morning, not too much water, but in the afternoon there was about six inches of water. Caught about 20 constant 6"-8" ers

      Great stuff guys

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
