Forget about the upper thumb.

Port austin about 3 feet snow with a foot of slush on the ice plus the parking lot is full of snow, only one narrow path for travel, no parking. Haven't fished there in a good 3 weeks, haven't heard a report from there in about 2 weeks.

Grindstone Slowwwwww. seen 4 browns last thurs, 2 last friday. no takers. Ice only 6-10 inches thick for some reason compared to all other harbors. Parking also bad, very narrow path.

Heard harbor beach has been producing a few browns, but i couldn't tell you where to fish or ice conditions since i don't fish over there very often.

well, the ice is good at port austin, fishing isn't.

Tried yesterday, The slush is bad from the ramp to the end of the dock, 50 yards of so and then its pretty good the rest of the way out. THere is 12-16 inches of clear ice on most of the harbor. We fished for 4 hours, seen 3 fish and they went by too fast to see what they were.

If you do go up there, stay on the smooth ice. the rough ice is safe, but layered. your drill a foot, get a foot of water and under that is 6 inches more of ice, then slush, etc.
