There were about 10 vehicles at Heartstone today, everyone walking. Basin had a few. 4 brave souls on Huddle who  basically walked across an ice bridge between two open areas around docks and used planks to cross a crack in the middle of the ice bridge. Too sketchy looking for me!!!

Fished hearthstone today . If you go over the wood barier the shore there is still solid. Perch bite was good early. Landed two lakers on perch jigs.

Not fishing due to Knee Replacement, but out for a ride Yesterday ! Vets shore was all open , no access! Few people on Basin Bay, a guy coming off, said all the 6" Perch ya want! Saw a couple guys out of heartstone, Million Dollar Beach shore was open, no access at launch, Access still looked good at Harris prob. 10 trucks parked. Its getting to where ya want to pay attention even more now! Stay on top guys !

everybody that keeps asking about lg.Just looked on the mdb webcam not one soul out there.Stick a fork in it be safe work on your tackle or head north to smaller water.

Friends of mine successfully fished tbis weekend, safely I'll add....so while most should pack it up, guys who know the lake are getting the last trips in.

I was shocked to see no one at the beach. The launch was open and quite a bit in front of West Brook was open, but there was a coupe hundred yards of shoreline to get on between that looked great.

I did make it out onto Harris both Saturday and Sunday. That strip of good ice between the islands was narrow enough yesterday that it made me uncomfortable to walk back through without swinging the spud. Sure as heck... I found 3 bad spots on my way in. Proper use of your tools can help keep you on top. Note to all: That spud sparred a wet butt yesterday.
The angle of the dangle is directly proportionate to the heat of the beat.

Same challenges up on Northern Champlain.  Hate to say goodbye to the king but there is nice ice elsewhere in the state that is less threatening!

It was a sad last walk off man. I had to get 1 last trip in for closure.  :P

Ice fishing until April seems plausible.  We may need to fish for those other lakers this weekend...you know...the other ones.

I like the other ones.  ;D. I fished LG lakers until April 12th back a few years ago. That was by far the latest I had been on the deep water.

I was at Hearthstone Tuesday morning.  If you go over the wooden barriers you can get right on to solid ice, as a previous poster noted.  I watched in amazement as several 4 wheelers got on the ice using a ramp to get from shallow water up on to the ice, at the "ramp" end of the parking lot.  The ice was thick (14" or so) but getting soft.  First time for me in this area.  It gets deep fast, not easy to find a significant area with "perch depth".

Prolly not going to be possible to drive down there for several days after this storm.

I was up there Monday and it did not look good then. Now we have more snow on it I'm not sure how it's looking now but I can't imagine it's any better than Monday

According to this post further up the page, no access.  If you could get on, it would probably be safe.
