If the warm up predicted doesn't happen or at least if it doesn't rain and blow like all hell we should be able to get er done. It isn't supposed to blow so maybe some ice will stick around, there is a lot out there right now!

3 days of warm, forecast for next week, along with rain. Not a good combo, plus high winds forecast for wed. If we someway avoid the rain, and wind we might get there. Another arctic blast in the forecast for late next week!

Yes can confirm that. A good buddy of mine and life long island resident is out today off state park. Ice is not that great but doable he said. No report yet as he just text me this morning when he made it safe.

Are Lake Erie fish safe to eat? When I was a kid I read about how polluted the lake was. Years later I heard how the conditions had greatly improved. Just recently I talked with a buddy who grew up in Erie. He doesn't fish, but he says knowing the history of what was dumped into the lake, he would never eat the fish from there.

I've been eating fish from that lake for many years and have never had a problem. They wouldn't run hundreds of charters every day if the fish weren't safe to eat.

Was out off Catawba 2 miles on Jan 27th.  Fish were finicky.  Vexilars marked a lot of fish but wouldn't bite.  No machines.  Heard 3 or 4 airboats running around over deeper waters.  Shove ice is a problem for machines.   Warm up could be blessing in disguise to knock down ice shove walls.  Water was cleaner in shallower waters.  Ice depth was 6-7" over 24 & 26 fow.  A few smooth, fast freeze areas had 4"'s.  7 of us went out and we caught 3 walleye, lost 3, and missed prob 7 bites.  Just a little rusty, but it was great getting out.
Good Luck and Good Fishing

I was also out of Catawba on Sunday with 4 other guys. We ended up with 7 fish and lost 3 others. All small fish (16-18").

As a new ohio resident,  do all fisherman use the airboat charters to get out to the islands?  I want to get a trip out there...but the big water has me hesitant.  Any info is appreciated.
