I went out on peacock last night ice was a good 5inches on the south side of the lake the cove at the north aide was about 3 inches. Did pretty well lots of little ones mixed in though.

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!
Fox Knoll 4+" and being fished. Sloooow fishing, though. Caught 5 keepers and 3 dinks that froze and had to keep anyway.
I like to sit around on the ice doing nothing because my wife won't let me do it at home.

Doesn't seem like the bite has been all that good in general. It won't keep me off the ice though. The season is underway guys.

Hit up a few ponds out on the south side. Checked round. Got skeched out after hearing multiple pressure cracks while spudding. Won't be out there for a couple more days. However, made it out to Interstate, along with quite a few other fellas. Bite was okay. Headed out to Muskrat tomorrow and might head put to some Barry County lakes. Fingers crossed. Hope the ice is treating you all well.

I was one of those fellas! Didn't notice anybody with a red beard, so I guess our paths didn't cross. I agree, okay is a good description for the bite.

I know I saw the tracks, but i think the wait of the quads split it all upon. Theres pressure cracks all over it. And i kept hearing it split with ever spud wack. Idk, just too skechy for me at least. Theres holes drilled out there though.

Are you going scouting this weekend? If you do, would you like some company? I am eager, and available. Very itchy, too. Just like everyone else.

I just finally got approved for posting, else I would have asked sooner!

Also, checked out Muskrat today. The bite was spotty and light. Decided to pack up and head to Sessions. Never in my life have i ever drilled over 50 holes and hardly mark less than 10 fish let alone not a single bite. I was gonna wait it out for the evening bite but got frustrated and here i ended up back at muskrat. Hopefully the evening bite goes better than the morning. Hope all you guys are getting out now that we finally have some good ice. Post your updates!

How was the ice on lake interstate? Just got my first shanty and I am ready to break her in. I'm in Charlotte so that is a pretty easy lake to get to and on to.

I hit interstate from 4pm until 7:30pm. Caught 4 small ones out from the dock that is it. Lots of lite bites. I didn't move much not sure if that would have helped. I miss my Marcum I left it up north retrieving it next weekend. New Clam power drill auger was awesome, I love it. This was my first time out alone on ice, man I hate the sounds it makes when the sun goes down. I know it's good but it still creeps me out.
