I know it will vary from lake to lake but how long do you guys think this ice is gonna stick around and be at least thick enough to walk on? I hope its there for another 3 weeks, then its boats and bobbers for pannies!!!!

I'm guessing another 2-3 weeks at least. With 18"-20" of ice is quite a bit and even though the temps can get around 50 during the day that is only for a short period maybe and hour or two. It usually gets below freezing at night so there is still plenty of time to get out and enjoy late ice!!

The weather can really play some tricks, but probably 1st or 2nd week of April and we'll be seeing lakes open up. JMO.

I'd say ice fishing will happen for at least 2 more weeks. Anything after that could get iffy, especially trying to access a lake with soft shorelines.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
