Anyone have the latest information on Wixom? I know they took a lot of water out of the lake for some construction so I was wondering what that and this cold weather has done for the ice conditions. Looking at hitting it this weekend if at all possible. I'd most likely be fishing by the DNR launch off Dundas Road. No machines either as we'd be on foot. Thanks for any help.

There may b good ice by the weekend. Drove by muddy bay today it is still open on the river side of the big island. I'll check by dundas later in the week and post back.

OK, thanks, much appreciated. We thought about an afternoon evening fish on Saturday but we may come up early Sunday if ice is good to get a whole day on the water since it isn't too far of a drive allowing us to get back at a decent time Sunday night for work on Monday.

My brother fished brushaber 3 inches of ice very slow, one decent gill. He said there was about a dozen people out there but everyone he talked too wasnt catching anything.

Thanks for the replies guys. I went out this evening and threw some tip ups out for an hour off the dnr launch. No luck but a nice night to be out. Ice was good, 4 inches plus in all the spots I checked, hopefully the fishing is better tomorrow

Thanks for the reports guys. Glad to hear the ice is finally safe enough in some areas. I will probably hit that next weekend as I'm headed a little farther north for tomorrow. Was the crappie bite on spikes or was it minnows? I usually catch them on minnows where I fish them around here but up there I always found they liked spikes better but I suppose it depends on the school of fish and the day. Glad to hear someone caught something though and hopefully I get lucky tomorrow and catch a few. Good luck.
