That's remarkable..
I love that..I'm hoping for a Grandbaby from my daughter in Harrisburg..
My son ice fishes and has a you tube for fishing ..he's single and is a manager for First Watch in McCandless Crossings .He can't seem to find a lady that likes what we like..🤷‍♀️
my fam eats there often,we live 5 or so minutes from there,its up the hill from north park lake which is barely skimmed in places :( its 43 degrees here and rainingggggggggggggggg gg  >:( we got more rain than snow so it goes?weather man got it wrong again.as for moraine/lake arthur my motto is "you cant dress for the lake in your drive way its always colder at the lake".so we need to wait and see if muddy creek tightens up.with the warm water influx who knows?uasually its cold water influx thats why it freezes first and frozen last, my opinion false news not fact checked.its now moving from first ice to midwinter doldrums,lots of fronts and jaw locking moons. oh well GOD is still on the throne amen.
GOD BLESS

Mostly snow all day up here until the afternoon.  Some sleet mixed in with the rain.  Who knows what the lake will look like, but I'll take a look tomorrow.

I know back in 2020 it seemed like edinboro lake and Howard Eaton were the only ones to freeze over well

We have 5 inches of snow up here right now..oil city rivet is open now..no more ice chunks. It would be nice if Conneaut lake froze over..
Sugar lake is small,..but freezes fast .

Salty, I've spent a lot of time in the woods near where you live now.  Great area...  My brother and I are looking to buy some property around there.

I really thought we were going to have ice soon, but based on the weather we had this weekend and what I see in the extended forecast, Iím starting to believe the people that were saying we arenít going to get back on the water again this season.

I'm not sure either..
Every year We like to go ice fishing on the local lakes on valentine's Day. 2015..was a no go for fishing..my first year in Venago County was Justice lake. Looks like 2023 may be a no go for valentine's Day.😒

Never know what's going to happen... The weather "experts" change the forecast 5x times per day.  Just have to wait and see...

Your absolutely correct. 
If things tighten up. We could have a couple weeks to fish..breath some fresh air and enjoy the moment. 😊
