Well I decided to check things out for myself. Lots of ice but how thick is the question because I didnt test it. The spill way is covered with ice and snow. Geno's was frozen as far as I could see. Did'nt go into metro but I asume the back basins are covered because all the canals off south river rd are frozen with some open patches of water in the usual current spots. The bay next to the dnr launch off south river rd was frozen with open patches of water. If it stays cold up till the 17th the ice may be walkable. Well enough to try the canals anyway.

Well I went and looked, there was ice at the raft, just expanding past the weed bed, about 200 yards or so out. The canals by the raft wfrozen over. At the fair haven Launch there was ice about 150 yards out. With the temp down to the single digits tonight, we should have ice by the weekend!:xzicon_sm

Well, I am pretty sure that he made if back in because I went out on one of my favorite channels tonight in Cass County, MI and there had been a guy out fishing already. His holes were already frozen over with 1/8 of ice and I know he wasn't gone long before I went there. I checked his hole and there was 2 1/2" of ice out there. In my book that is safe enough for me to be on. I am headed out tomorrow morning to slay the gills and I am sure there will be 3" by then with the temps dropping close to the single digits tonight. Good luck and be safe everyone!

Not only low temps, we also need light to no winds. A heavy wind from the wrong direction will tear it up quick.
