   I know of no safe ice in northern Illinois.  By safe ice I mean 4 - 6", not the 1.5 inches that some guys are willing to fish on.  As soon as  the backwaters of the chain have at least 5"  I will be out there.  Hopefully this will be withing 2 weeks.  I will be checking Blackwell on Sat.        DaFish
