As of 2 hours ago- 1 permenant house and 3 portables all straight out from the launch. Perm house is about 60-70 yds off shore. Didn't stop to check ice thickness though so I can't help you out there.

There's about 6-8 inches of ice, but half of it is honeycombed..Frozen slush and what not..Not much action as far as fishing. I caught one sunny. Lot's of people Tip Up fishing. I didn't see any flags all day.

It sounds like from here and some of the other threads that O'dowd is ready to fish for the most part. Is there any part of the lake that anyone knows of that is still a place of concern for someone on foot w/ a portable.

Good luck and be safe.

Is the ice all safe or is there still places to watch out for with a portable and walking. Fish the lake alot in the summer but the only place I would know to watch now is there is some current between the island and the fishing pier on the west side.

Thank you and be safe out there.

Was out there last night with Pierbridge. Caught our share of smallish crappies (30 or so) from 4:30 till about 7.

Ice is good out from the access into the main accumulation of fish shacks. There is about 7 good inches and about 3 inches of frozen slush. Couple of cars out and a very brave truck or two.

Once you head north and east from the main cluster of houses the ice thins out.

Some areas only had 4 to 5 good inches with about 1 to 2 of frozen slush.

Use some common sense and you should be safe.

hey, assinthehole, I'd like to get out there and fish. We caught a few last winter between the island and the east shore? big drop-off. We saw a shack set up on a reef? right along the shore line, not far from the public access. Anyone ever try there? I'm going to try to hit it this weekend. Good luck to all of you. If I see a party happen' I'll try to stop by. Unless fish in my hole ooo.gif Krawdad

Was out today for a few hours..Moved around alot with little success.. Ice was between 8-12 inches.. A full size truck drove past my portable.. I had about 6 inches of good ice, and 3 inches oh frozen slush..Let's see if he gets off. I could feel the ice crack when he drove by.

I was out on O'dowd x-mas day and I am a little worried for some of those driving on the lake. An area out if front of the launch was packed with perms and full size vehicles. There were still people parked on shore and this was the first time I had been on the lake this winter and was with my son so we desided to walk. We never drilled by the mass of people but we walked to the far side and set up about 100 yards south of the fishing dock. There was one perm near there but there was also only 7 1/2 inches of clear ice and 1/2 inch of frozen slush. This wasnt enough to hold the type of traffic that was on the other side. PLEASE ALL BE CAREFUL OUT THERE. Otherwise the fishing wasnt all that great and the snow was coming down so we didnt stay to long.

Good luck and be safe.

i was in the middle of the crowd to the north side of the access and it was 12inches of clear ice and 1 1/2 of slush ice but there was alot of vehicles going by me and headed for the islands going across the by the fishing dock is it really that much difference in ice thickness over the deep hole?

That was in about 12 FOW where we were along that shore. I am glad to here its much thicker or on the other side. I just hope for awhile people don't do much wondering to the far side.

Good luck and be safe.

      watch the video, shows them scaling them...

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!
    • delcecchi
      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?  
    • AlwaysFishing23
      My yard!! Lol packing things away today. Getting ready for summer Be a great day to get out though.

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      By the landing yet it is.

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
