Just got done talking to a buddy and he said that a guy fell threw the river North of the Z-Bridge in the ship turn around. There is bad ice in that area guys so be careful. Tonight there was about 7in of ice in downtown saginaw along with a few eyes caught.

The ice is spotty. Fished there on Saturday. Only about 3.5" of ice. First inch was soft. There was a guy that went through the ice about 20 yards in front of us. He went up to his waste. He got out and is fine. We talked to him for a moment to make sure he was ok.

There were quite a few people out there.

Use a spud. Be careful.

All the snow on the ice is not helping. We fished by Ojibway Saturday night. I will say that was the thinnest ice I have ever fished on the river. Makes me a little nervous when you know if you go below the ice with that current you won't come up your hole.

I am going to hit the bay from now on. I got some decent reports from some fishing buddies. I feel safer there as long as the wind doe not blow.

Thanks for the report. I was going to head up there but I'll wait until there is a little more ice. ;)
