Just wondering if anyone know how thick the ice is and if it's driveable. Thanks.

I got 15" of ice. Cars and trucks driving around. I fished the second deep hole, got some small bluegills. Got sick of lookers and no biters, so I moved up to the outside edge of teh first deep hole by the houses. I was in 10 feet of water, and I caught all the 9 and 10" crappies you could handle, but the weird thing was they were suspended 3 feet below the ice.

Don't worry about driving, nice flat access on the north side (very small bump, that's about it).

Easy superman.. a guy can ask.. doesnt meant that the other has to answer.... I would say your typical crappie gear and jigs will do just fine.. Demon by CJ&S.. larger Marmoskas.. Lunar Bug by JB lures, or smaller Gem-n-Eyes... should all work.. tipped with aeither a waxworm or minnow of just the minnowhead. Last night I was fishing crappies(not on big marine) and expierimenting with the smallest NilsMaster Jigging shad bait.. the crappies loved it. I also got a ton on a red Diamond jig with a soft plastic tail, no bait.

There is a pressure ridge that runs east west across the south bay, about 300 yards south of the tiny island. I commonly access the lake from the launch off of May Ave.

I'd recommend either using the north launch or the newer launch at the Big Marine Park Reserve, what little snow we've received has drifted towards the launch off of May Ave. The ice is getting thick, I've measured close to 18" the last few times out.
