Hey glenn,

A buddy and I tried Pokegama on the east end this past Tuesday night and the ice had pulled away from shore. If a guy has waders you can still get on. Fishing was horrible with only 1 4" crappie, a whitefish, and some perch for our troubles. I haven't heard about any other lakes, but would assume that the ice has pulled away from shore on alot of them and you need waders to get out. You may want to give Fred's Bait a call here in D.R. and see what Bill has to say. My ice fishing season is over, time to chase bluegills at MP&L.

It was good meeting you a few weeks ago, we'll have to hook up and fish next winter.

      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.
