If you can't find a lake with decent ice, then you could always go to buffalo. They have a public, well maintained skating area on the lake right next to decent fishing spots.

Just an idea for you.

Last Friday when temps were near 40, My wife and I did exactly that and had a blast. It was nice to have a shack to go in when we needed a break. We were on Minnetonka out by Big Island. Ice was pretty smooth for skating, but you have to watch for cracks and a few ridges. Had several flags but missed all the fish. We plan on doing this more as long as there isn't much snow cover.
