I drove by it sunday morning and it didn't look good at all...   Big cracks and wet spots....

sunday was definitely not very safe, although nearer to shore was doable.  I still do not recommend widespread travel on cando, if you do pay attention to the signs of weaker ice around spring, rockpiles, etc.  I'll be out there tomorrow and will provide a detailed report. 

as for the debate about the OP giving away too much info, I can see both sides.  On some weekends, especially those where other lakes are not available to fish, there can be well over a hundred guys on the west side of the lake.  If each of them takes home 50 of the lakes biggest perch, that will decimate the population of any lake.  How long does it take to grow a 12" perch?  More than a year or two I'd bet.  We should all remember to be responsible anglers as best as each sees fit, I'll leave it at that.
On the other hand, Kudos to you for encouraging and helping out your fellow anglers, that is what this site is all about.  You will all hear about my success or failure on wednesday!

Yes it would, but hopefully nobody is keeping over their limit, which is 25!

Wonder how many others "think" the limit is 50.

Well there you go!  I'm almost strictly C&R so I don't pay much attention to numbers.  I've been called arrogant when I say that "If I kept every fish I've caught (out of Cando) the lake would have been empty years ago!"  but joking aside, there's a good point to that.

is that a public access spot or private?

my source said 2.5"-3" and extremely variable ice.   surprised no one is out there on plywood sheets like some years.

I was one of those guys, along with BIGJIM223.  Had a good day, although much slow time, but darn if that sun wasn't feelin good!  Ice was 3-4" of softish ice, may times the spud went through on the first hit.  But we all stayed dry so...     Perch bite picked up at sunset.

What was the GPS numbers for that spot we fished today? Some nice perch in there! LOL!
  Seriously, it was a great day out there. The ice was a bit thin for me, but nobody got wet! Some nice perch were caught along with the usual dinks. It was good to get out and wet a line again!

PS
Did you and Bob get anything after I left on the evening bite? Let me know.

Flanny was there with us settin up for 'eyes.  Didnt seem like he got any.  I'll be out on the east side sat sun and mon, you're welcome to check it out.   Biggest perch on wed was exactly 12" and .93 lbs, and was swelled up like a behemoth.  made the 10" perch look like shiners.
