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.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.

      Drove by Grays Bay this morning. The one and only house left has now partially fell thru. Not sure how this one is coming out.
