Anyone able to tell me what the ice conditions are like at Ginos I.E. thickness at 100, 200, 300 yards out? Is anyone running four wheelers or sleds out there yet? Also how many feet visibility is the water clarity? Thank you in advance.

maybe im the safe then sorry type but i would be in no hurry to get my machine on that ice just yet.. i would let it get through our few days comin up here in the 40s and then the week after that where its allll cold as **** before i go putting 1000+lbs over a 5x3.5 area of ice... buttt im also not a big fan of walking on any less then 2-3".. good luck be safe and check your ice as you go..

I was out maybe 300 yards and ice was 5-6" thick. Water clarity was 2' at best. Caught a few perch. Tried going farther out about another 200 feet and the ice dropped to about 4". All I was able to find were a bunch of weeds so I went back to were I was catching some fish. There was a few spots while walking back that were soft on top. Did see a quad out there. Also saw what appeared to be some snowmobile tracks.
