    do you guys think that the ice fishing season is going to be over due to the warm wet weather over the next couple of days?

    I fished a couple locations in the NWLP over the weekend and one spot had nearly two feet of ice, so no, not over for those folks quite yet.

    Back in my neck of the woods in SE Michigan, I think the fat lady is on deck. It's all about the shore ice, and the rain and 60 degree temps are not very helpful to say the least.

    No not over yet! Lots of walkable ice left. Machine days are limited. Some inland lakes will have ice for awhile yet as the bay we will be on it till she blows out into big lake.

    cranberry Kent county? I drove by the north end boat launch and it was a good 15 ft of open water before the ice. I didn't check the south side though .
