    Looks good from a distance, but it's not. I haven't checked, but haven't seen anybody out there in a few days.

    Yeah I would expect open water on Houghton due to the depth of the lake. Fishing is around the corner boys.

    How's it looking with this warm weather and the rain? Possible ice out this weekend or next weekend?

    Maybe next weekend. This was taken/posted today, that's Pt. Detroit looking west.

    One of the guys who went out this weekend said 10-12 of good ice, once you get out there.

    Wow 10 to 12 inches still out there. I guess it should be expected as spring seems to have skipped us this year.
