    I was out on Lk Charlevoix yesterday, not too far from Gaylord. Ice was 11" and snow covered. No issues at the shoreline where I was.

    Where did you go out at? Might be going up there Tues and we were planning on fishing the south arm, either near holy or down closer to the river.

    I have been fishing South Arm off Dutchman's Bay DNR launch. Cannot recommend it now, though. Perch bite was pretty good a week ago but has been dropping off each day. I fished 4 hrs there this afternoon and after dark, with only 1 dink perch to show for it. I spoke to a few other guys who were doing no better. ATV's and snowmobiles were out; ice is around 11-12" today. Open water from the river halfway up to EJ Tourist Park. Let us know how you do.

    I am planning a trip to Gaylord area on Thursday. Looks like the temps are good for ice. Hopefully I can find hard water.

    I saw 4 permanent shacks out on Otsego Lake this morning when I drove by. I have no idea about shore ice conditions or anything but I was happy to see people still fishing it.

    Well we hit Lk Charlevoix on Tuesday. Went out off Ironton launch in the morning. Marked a lot of fish but could only get the dinks to bite. Ice was somewhere around 12" with some snow on top. Went over to Dutchmans at about 1 or 2pm and fished until near dark without anything biting. Marked fish everywhere we were but just tough fishing that day.
