dont look good pc been pouring here not far from lake
If your not far from the lake maybe you can swing by after work on Friday and check Perry Public Beach and Standpipe shore ice and post.  Let us know if a plank would work.  No sense driving 35 miles one way on Sat if shore ice is really shot.  Thanks in advance.

Found out today that a buddy of mine went out of Perry Public Beach Thurs late morning through mid afternoon and told me he step right on to the ice and the main ice was still good about 8" but getting soft on top 2".  He kept 15 perch.  I'm going in the morning and will post when I get home if I get out or not.  Hope to fish all day.

Went to Northeast side this morning.  Standpipe Rd has 6' of open water at the shore not accessible.  Perry Public Beach has 2' of open water at the shore.  Laid a 10' plank across to the ice and the 1st 3' of ice the bar went through with 2 hits.  Main ice does look good but getting to it for me was unsafe.  By the end of the day the shore ice may have been so bad even with the plank I may not have been able to get off.  Pulled the plank and went home.  40 years ago I would have taken the chance.  Over all it was a good year for perch on Silver.

Just received my perch bait today, Mousees and white / pink Spikes.  I am ready but the lake is not.  Maybe after X-mas or before New Years.

Second that.  It had a light skim on the South end and along the shoreline a week or so back but that didn't last.  The water is the right temp to make ice if the freezing temps get here and stay in the teens for a week.

Is the "Hole in the Wall" restaurant a decent place to go after being out on the ice with the kids?  I can't tell from the website if it is a true hole in the wall gin mill or if it's a fancy place on the lake.

I don't feel too bad hijacking this thread for food as there isn't much ice activity yet.  Back to the Hole in the wall - is it worth a visit?

used to fish silver years ago with my dad, we always did really well with the pike there.. I have heard from several people that the fish numbers are way down and the fishing isn't what it used to be. true or false?

Iím on this lake all year and yes the fishing for me anyhow has slowed way down. I am by far no expert though. This summer the hits and size of perch and bluegill were getting better. (Hand fillers). Fingers crossed for a better year. Still going after the elusive walleye. Marked a few on the east side north of Mackís but couldnít get a strike. Anxious to try through the ice.

If Mack's is still closed "the Hole" would have been my go to.  They've positioned themselves from being a great local diner to a fine dining type restaurant but the food is good, the staff is nice, and it's close.   The Lumber Yard is an option as well but also fine dining style.  Darryl's is close for pizza, wings, subs.  I never cared for the place by NAPA for a variety of reasons but opinions vary.  If by chance you're headed west, Laurie's in Warsaw will make everyone smile.   There is also Pizza Depot in Silver Springs and Al's Pizza in Castile both a couple minutes from the state launch.  I can recommend their food.  Mack's had a flood a few months ago and was struggling to get back in operation.  They were still closed my last trip by at the end of deer season.  Haven't seen anything on their FB page either.  May have lost the battle?? Didn't realize how often I stopped by there till they were closed..........:(

Since its closed is parking in that area still allowed? I have not been to silver in 4-5 years and have heard parking at the state lot has changed. What is the updated parking situation for the south end?

The only thing that has changed at the state lot is it costs $5 now year round. They have a pay machine and they do check. Still a great deal for a nice plowed lot and a clean, heated bathroom!
