According to Dave @ Young's Party Store in Alanson, a few guys are fishing Carp Lake (Paradise Lake). I went out to check on Maple Bay and all I got were were wet boots. Might have to wait a few more days/weeks depending on all this lake effect. Be safe and as always, tight lines.

Up here in Charlevoix, Emmett counties, we had many small and shallower lakes locked in. I had planned on fishing by this weekend. Unfortunately, Mother nature served up a heaping helping of frozen mashed potatoes last night. We've gotten over a foot in 24 hours. Not good for the lakes with 2 inches of ice. Probably a week setback for those areas. Luckily, the larger lakes shouldn't be affected as much as they haven't frozen yet.

Yesterday the lake I'm on in the NW lower was completely open water , early this morning it was completely frozen over.
I'm anxous to see how much snow we get on the newly formed ice and whether we'll have ice fishing this year. Two years ago we didn't.

Heading down tomorrow a.m., but my buddy was out yesterday and had between 3-4" of ice. Very little snow cover on the ice and a few guys were fishing off the 4 lanes. Tight Lines.

Man, that is good to hear! I talked to a buddy last night - Long Lake is frozen too! Gotta believe Fletcher's is frozen given the depth.

Checked both. Burt has about an inch on Maple Bay....didn't get out much further than 10 yds before it took no more than two wacks with the spud. :SHOCKED: Heard Crooked was O.K. but at the launch, I found similar conditons to Maple Bay. I'm sticking on shore for a few more day. Next opportunity for me is Tuesday, so I'll let all those weekends test the ice for me. :lol: Tight Lines
