Is the ice out on steamboat bay yet? Coming up this weekend and wondering if I can get the boat out. Thanks

Open in the Walker narrows. Smaller open hole between Cedar and Squaw. Lots of open near the channels. Walker Bay, however, had 2.5 - 3 feet of solid ice. Not even pulling away from shore. Some snow patches on it (I actually went on a sled ride Saturday). Perch were hitting in 9-11 feet of water. I say we are 7-9 days from ice out.

I was up to Leech this past weekend. I expect the ice in Walker Bay to be out by Wednesday the 25th. I have no info on the big lake.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.

      I have Frabill Icesuit (Large) for sale. Never worn in the elements. I am selling it because with the warmer temperatures here in the south (I'm from Georgia) This suit will be in the closet more times than it will be used and on top of that my dickies coverall with under layers kept me warm just fine for my winter fishing trip. I bought this suit from Presleys Outdoor online for $250. Willing to let it got for $220. (Shipping included in price) I can send more pictures of the suit if you need.

      Sound fair?? Let me know....
