I took a look at Interstate today. It's completely covered with slick ice. Somebody had gone out a few feet recently and checked with a spud, but they didn't go any farther. No telling what will happen with the rain and snow coming, but I'm worried about slush.

Dell rd ponds are at 2 1/2 with an inch of slop. Stll got on em though. Didnt go out too far. Hawk island has about 3-3 1/2 of honey comb. Got on it today as well. Not much action but man was it nice just getting out.

how about Fox Knoll?
I like to sit around on the ice doing nothing because my wife won't let me do it at home.

Want to definitely have 4WD for Rose. Parking is on the North side of the lake off of Stoll Rd. If you reach the DNR office you've gone too far. Fox Knoll has a few parking spots on the south side of the lake off of State Rd. I haven't fished either for years now. Good luck if you get out there.

Got out on Park today. Ice is a little spotty by shore but gets better as you walk towards the pit. About 4-5 inches of honey comb. Not enough to call safe exactly but as soon as i got out there people were stopping and staring, probably wondering if I was either crazy, or surpised the icecwas actually walkable. Get there at 9 all by my lonesome, by the time I left there were six more guys out there. Bring your spuds and picks if you plan on checking it out. Bite wasnt all that great but still great to get out. Also stopped by Round. Went out about 50 feet found only 2 inches, then heard a pressure crack, turned my ass around real quick. Wednesday is the start to my vacation. I plan to fish all day every day so if anyone wants to meet up, two drills are better than one!

Drove around Fox Knoll/Rose/Potter last night. There were truck tracks at all of them, I only saw foot prints at Potter so I walked out and found about 3 inches. I wasnt brave enough to try where I didnt see others had gone as I am far from an expert. Hoping to get out tomorrow and that the warmth today didnt affect it too much!

Ehhhh, id give it another day maybe dude. IMO. Just to be safe. However, The rain and warmer twmps today will help melt the snow thats insulating it from freezing. Temps the next few days lookin reel good. Ill be back out on wednesday. Might check out interstate, and heard davis pits has got some walkable ice as well.

I'd suggest don't push it for tomorrow, especially if you're not familiar with the lake. As warm as it was today, that could weaken the iffy ice we've got. But it will set things up to make nice ice when we get the single digit nights they predict starting Sunday. I don't want to take any chances, but it looks like I could finally get out next week!

Probably Lake Interstate because it's the closest for me.

I'll be taking a drive to Lake Interstate just to get out of the house. Antsy to go fishing somewhere, just not ready to venture on the ice with the warm spell we just had.
Good luck fellas, be safe!

Im suiting up and going fishing somewhere today, this has gone on long enough.
But don't quote me on that. I have a drinking problem, I keep running out of beer. I've always been a little bit crazy, but its kept me from going insane.

How was the bite on Ovid? I haven't really heard many good things about the winter bite there.
