I did a drive by today. It's getting there. The freighter did not do fisherman's landing any favors. Not looking good there. Marinas may be fishable. West side of GT someone spudded out 15 ft or so, drilled a hole, 2" at best. Snow cover doesn't look too terrible. I'm thinking mid week next week, for me anyways.
Saw 1 guy at sand docks Friday....looked iffy. Nobody else fishing the west end. Saw another guy checking the ice at west access point of gt docks....he said the snow areas were iffy. Need more cold to get to where I'll be going out over deep water. Keep it cold and light on the snow....be safe!
There were a bunch of guys out off of Second street this afternoon. I was thinking about giving it a try in the morning, then saw a post on Facebook that multiple guys have gone through the ice this weekend..... Will wait another week or two.
