WAS Duck hunting Sat-Sun on my lake(Hillsdale) and was wide open, no skim..had to go back and get something I left yesterday and she was froze over. Broke through some and holy crap was 2=1/2 in thick! That was quick.
the lake I live on was wide open Sunday when my son was out bird hunting. Woke up Monday morning to it being completely locked up. Guys were fishing it starting on Thursday. That happened fast.

Too much damn snow here as well. I stopped at three early lakes here, and no one was out on any of them. Tracks on two of them going out about 50 feet, and then turning around. If I weighed 160 instead of 230, I might give it a go. I walked out on one about twenty feet and it was cracking with every step.

I heard the the Greenville area got less snow and that guys are out all over. At least that's what I heard.

Good news here around PawPaw is there’s no snow on the ice.
I’m seeing anywhere from 1” of good hard ice to 3” of layered frozen slush. (And 1 spot with floating slush.)
So we’re close. If the temps weren’t going to raise all night, if it would get down into the low teens, We’d be out in the morning

I was on Long Lake and Hogset in Kzoo area today. Ice was good at both. Bite was better at Hogset. Lotta flags and the fellas were catching bluegills at the usual spot(s).
I was at long lake for two hours and didn’t even get a bite ha !Guess that’s why it’s called fishing ,nice to be on the ice anyway

Drove to a few lakes in Kalamazoo county today and did not see anyone on them. Didn’t have a spud with me to test the ice. Has anyone tested the ice the last couple of days around Kalamazoo. I’m thinking of venturing out tomorrow morning.
