Just checked the 528 area , couldnít believe that there is still open water between the528 ramp and the maples. Lake had a lot of wet spots . After this snow tomorrow the ice will be shot

Drive by on the way over to Sarnese Taxidermy.  The snow was coming down on the way there.  There was still open water between the 528 launch and the Maples which is kind of weird.  Tons of spots that looked wet on the ice   And there was 3 people probably 20 - 30 yards off the bank at church didnít drive down to see how thick and didnít have any desire too until after these super cold next two days roll through.  I just hope people use their head and donít get too antsy. LA doesnít need to claim another life over a fish.

Off the zion church 2 1/2Ē at best about 15í out  .. couple guys walking on that ice like it was 2 ft of ice.  If you went past 30 ft out you were really taking a big risk.  Was raining most of the day and about 4 started to snow pretty heavy.  Lots of ducks and geese could be seen swimming around the maples so watch that area after the snow fall

Fished with chute and couple others. Ice very sketchy. Bouncy around a hole too risky for this fat guy. Give it two days then you might be able to get to some fish without swimming. Be smart

(new to the forum)
I was coming home Friday the 18th from Cranberry and stopped at the launch off of 528. Saw foot prints out about half way. Ice was about 2 inch thick, and that's being generous. Hoping to go out for my first time with a buddy or 2 a week or two from now; waiting for 4-5 inches.

Welcome aboard Boston,
Ice should be good to go in another week or so. Lots of information on here to get you started.

Thank you Jay!
I'll probably take a look-see Friday when I get off of work to see how it is. Hoping to find someone there that'll give me a report of ice thickness. Until then, I'll keep look to the forum for. conditions and how well people are doing.

muddy creek has the best chance of early ice due to the influx of cold water from MC. ive been way in the back on 5 inches of ice when it was open every where else, i can only guess but id say you could get on back there and work your way out today.you need to start shallow and work towards the deep where ever you go ??? ??? caveaut :nono: too many variables to say fosure thats what its all about get out there and see
GOD BLESS

A couple guys from work invited me to go Friday or Saturday to Moraine for a few hours (something about a tournament???) Sunday they talked about going out to yellow creek since its suppose to have 4 inches now, building to more.

Ordered an auger and some extra items last night to get me started. Ice picks were a must!

The tournament at LA is the 27th I believe.  Anyone have any word or seen that open spot that was out to the right of the Maples since the snow and weather? Thinking that may be a dicey area if it got skimmed then the snow stayed on top and it doesnít build much especially for the tourney coming up and them going out from under the bridge.  Just hate to see someone walk on that spot and go in the drink even though with this weather Iím sure itll be at least 3 by Saturday
