I just checked out the Houghton Lake webcam and it looks like the lake (East Bay) is covered with snow.:woohoo1:

The only problem is the snow on top of the ice will keep it from freezing faster. With this wind the snow will hopefully blow off!

Right.

I hope its not wet snow and will blow off. I hate it when there's a lot of snow and screws things up.

Parents have a house on the east bay. My dad is driving up there right now to do some hunting. I will get a report from him.
Can't wait to see some tip up flags.

Walked out 20ft from shore at state launch by comfort suites stomped on ice and she let loose was lookin at open water about 400 ft out. Went down by arnies a little thicker but again only walked out about 20 ft. The ice is pretty turned up over there from the wind. Checked it by burger king by m-18 and was froze as far as I could see. Went out about 20 ft again and stomped on it and it felt solid but wasn't taking any chances. The snow for the most part is blown off the lake except by shore where it is slushy for about 10-15ft. All in all the lake looked pretty good considering the weather we had. Planning on going back over there saturday with spud in hand this time will post what I find.
