I think we'll be in good shape despite the white junk come early next week thanks to the sub-zero temps starting tomorrow!

I think the snow will move the date for pulling out the house from before Christmas to mid January.

Because the size of the lake and the winds that come with the area most of the snow will get blown off the lake.

More like a foot on the pond, and if it is wet and now froze it won't blow much. hard to predict how the ice will grow. I would think if the pattern holds shacks will be out by x-mas. Long range forecast says below zero every night almost till the 20th. hard to imagine that would not make over a foot of ice.

Just came in off the lake. We will be opening up for snowmobile and wheeler access to both Shaw's Reef and Doe Island Reef on Wednesday. We found 8 inches of ice everywhere in the bay and out to bout 1/4 mile past Does Island. At that point we had slush and 5 inches of ice. We have started to clear our landing in anticipation of staging houses soon. We will spend tomorrow staking trails and plowing out an area for a skating rink.

      Starting to see some slabs moving shallow

      Well you have a few questions... lets get started😁 Rods... like bass or walleye or anything else that swims,  you may or may not be able to do it all with one pole,  more than one.  I use a couple different types, depending on what's working. I like a long one for fishing floats, to make those long casts. For this I chose a 7 1/2 ft, moderate action, light power.  For throwing those 1/32 -1/16oz jigs without a float I use a 6 1/2 ft ultra light, fast action... much like a light walleye rod.  A little later in the summer  and into fall, vertical jigging 4-5 mm tungsten jigs comes to life. I use a shorter rod, sometimes even an ice rod for this approach. Your line selection should match your jig size and rod type. Most of the time I will spool up with 4lb Trilene xl,  If I'm fishing water with a lot of pike, I will bump up to 6, but generally go as light as you can get by with, just like ice fishing. I find myself using plastics about 90% of the time now days. Some of favorites are Impulse 1in minnows and minnow fry, Gulp whiptails, and lil hustler 1inch tubes. Most of the time Im pairing these plastics with a 1/60 or 1/32 lead head jig. I like a little slower fall rate when fishing early  panfish... later in the season, when the fish move deeper, switching  to a little heavier weight jigs will do a better job.

      I was just out on Daisy Bay and there is 9-10” of clear ice with 5-6” of very wet slush on top. Last week the same hole had 18” of ice with 6” of packed snow/slush.

      I've never chased panfish during the open water season.  I caught my first bluegill this winter, and have developed quite the crush on them.  What's your go to rod, length and action?  Plastics or bait?  Line type and lb?  Do you use a bobber?  Should I use same jigs as winter or plain hook?

      I remember the 10 o'clock news having a banner that said "Do you know where your kids are?"

      There is still a lot of ice up here, it's getting darker obviously and on some really small bodies of water pulling away from shore but I know they are still running 4 wheelers on larger lakes
