Looking to head to the saginaw on Friday morning. Want to fish near the mouth. Looking for an ice report before we head that way. Any info would be helpful

Sitting on 8+ inches of ice as we speak. The ice is fine, it is the fishing that is in bad shape. I have been here (river side of red can 21) since 7:15 this am and have fished from 11' to 30' with only one bump. I have marked fish when I have let the bait sit still but as soon as I jig it, they are gone.
I'm guessing everyone else is doing about the same judging by the amount of movement

There are sleds and quads launching at the mouth and heading out onto the Bay.

Same thing for us at Smith Park. They would swim up to the bait watch it for about 15 seconds and then swim away.
