    just checked the ice this am. Wind is eating it up, although it is iced all the way across. Spud went right through, I’d say about an inch. 5 days of above 32 starting Sunday will not help. I am guessing after Christmas, unless it all goes away then January.
    Btw, I was in slight error regarding NOAA ice % throughout the Great Lakes.
    75-85. 66.5%
    85-95. 58.1%
    95-2005. 43.4%
    05-15. 51.2%

    Oh yes there is.Most people don't know about it.I would share the location but it would cause it to get ruined.And I would not want to have to find another way of getting out there.

    You share it and it will end up like the Brest bay parking spot. 2 pages on bolles and nobody is even fishing it yet internet is not good for small access areas it does more harm then good. Good luck on ice this winter junkman

    Bob unless your posting graphs of ice thickness I don’t really think anyone comes on a fishing forum for this. Pls stop pushing this on this forum, plenty of other spots to put it. You must be paying Steve off to keep this here

    Nobody does there own leg work anymore.So if you don't post the exact GPS location they won't find it anyway.Plus most people wouldn't walk that far for fishing that is hit or miss anyway.

    Gator. Maybe Steve agrees with me and is a liberal. Does that scare you?

    Ice is still hanging on in the bay. About 3” of water top of 1” ice. 2 good spud whacks and through. Would be nice if it hangs on through this warm spell

    Sounds better then the ice I fished on yesterday 1 spud hit went through and was on about 2” of ice and standing in 5” of water lol. Ice was solid though little different on a inland lk then apb with the water fluctuating. Hopefully right around xmas we are out. Clarity improve any out there Waller?

    Couldn’t get a good grasp on the clarity situation. There were a bunch of kids playing hockey at the north end of the bay up by the low bridge/nature preserve area! IMG_7319.JPG
