30 inches of ice. Fishing slowed down last couple weeks but if your there at right time in right place can still land some nice ones. Was there yesterday. Water on ice in places, getting rough from melt freeze cycle. I got 4 walleye in 5 hours but all in about 1/2 hour. Couple bites other than that.

14 - 15 Inches of Ice North Side. Nice Clear Ice BUT lots of large cracks some may be small pressure ridges ( over foot across but covered in snow so hard to tell). I will not be driving on still for while. Fishing was slow today. Lots of Walleye on Camera but they were not biting.

Headed out Tomorrow Hopefully. 12 Inches at Shuster Now so Clear should be good to walk on. . _

Some recently open or flooded areas ( Cracks Associated with Clear Area ). Seems to be frozen in these areas. Only 4 inches near shore at Shuster so I would wait for Clear for while longer.

Was out at lake today. Primary Layer of Ice on 80 % of Lake. Tossed some rocks and none broke through so probably about 1 cm. Wind was blowing water from open areas across newly formed ice in Bands. Looked pretty cool. Big change from Wed when there was no ice at all on lake.

Ice was around 20 Inches 1 hole was only 16 inches seems pretty solid where I was Sunday ( measured with tape not estimate ). Ice at entrances is sketchy ( full of air pockets and pulling away from shore in warm weather ect ). I wont drive out anymore but that is just my opinion. I am going to head out tomorrow if no work comes up. Couple weeks ago after the rain drain holes ( one was over 18 inches across ) where forming right through ice so be cautious.

What's the ice like right now Brad0420? I always release the pike I catch there.

I catch walleye consistently on this lake in winter ( never skunked ). Pike are few and far between even in summer. From what hear and see everyone keeps any legal pike they catch. So expect them to continue to decline. There are perch in lake but are tiny. Some were getting minnow sized on camera this year so hope they will be catchable soon but once they are iam sure they will get fished out quickly. Walleye fishing great.
