Yes I can see the pics, those cracks definately look nasty and warrant some caution for sure. I'm betting with the temps and rain that ice is feeling spongy. It looks like easy walking ice  :-\

Per contacts today Ice is holding north of Island measured at 9Ē.  However shoreline at Poison isnít the best right off ramp.  Sleds had to go away from Ramp on sides.  Ice heaves north are firming up but south along island not good.  Including still very questionable on any ice near and south of island.  Be safe donít go alone and taking an ATV better have a tie strap and winch handy especially later in day getting off

Yes sleds are doing fine.  As for ATVs unsure.   Folks we know have sleds and they are fine getting on and off.  However shorelines at PC ramp ice heave and later in day soft ATV may possibly have an issue as I stated earlier.

Pretty slow fishing right now boys. Iíve been all over poison Creek and the only thing Iím going to catch is a cold. Rain has been coming down nonstop. Definitely bring waterproof boots for an extra pair.

Are you marking some that aren't willing or are you just not seeing much? How much water is on the ice now with all that rain?

They just weren't biting but he was seeing them. There was about an inch of water on the ice. He said it's holding out good though. Temps should be dropping off tomorrow night

He's going to be dancing all night to get us more snow

 Ended up with about 10 fish. At lunchtime, I was ready to give it up. Major wet mess! Still raining right now. Hopefully tonight it will turn to snow. For some reason this morning the fish were tight lipped but they cooperated better after lunch. Definitely saving plenty of fish for you guys, but you better hurry.

Here's an update per my discussions with prospector on the ice today, everything has either seeped back into the lake or refroze last night/this morning. Thers's no more water on the ice. Its just staight slick ice. The ice where he's fishing is 10in, with that being the average thickness he's been on. Said he found 12in in a couple places but most 10in. There is some cracks and ridges that definately need to be treated with caution and seen one small open water spot that apeared to be like a methane pocket\leaker or something similiar. He stayed away from it. He has been going out from poison and said the ice directly in front of the ramp is tore up but acessing off the side of the ramp is good. He's been on his snowmobile. Here's a pic from this morning he sent me. The temp in donnelly was 25deg an hour ago and a few degrees colder earlier

 You guys make sure and travel safe on your way to cascade. Today was a great day on the ice! Finally opened the can on the bigger fish and even got them in numbers. When I left the lake tonight there was 6 inches of snow and as I write this it is still snowing. Hopefully the temps will drop and keep it that way . Canít wait for you guys to get here and look forward to seeing all of everyoneís new inventions as usual. Take care and good night, prospector

Epic weekend at cascade, thx to all that came up and had a blast yanking some jumbos. Everyone caught atleast a 14in perch. We're hauling home around 20lbs of filets. Heres a teaser of my biggest fish  just shy of 15in. Great time. More to come. Hardh20fishin caught the biggest at 15.5

Already looking forward to doing the trip again. Great fishing, great folks, great weather...who could ask for more.

Special thanks to Muskyon46 for coordinating the logistics and getting us all together....you 'da man...!

Here are some of the pics....



















You can't buy happiness, but you can buy fishing gear....and that's kind of the same thing.

Glad you guys had a good trip! I could hear you guys hooting and hollering every once in a while over there. In our group the biggest was 16 1/2" and everyone caught at least one over 15". Also got a bonus 8 pound trout. Epic is the only way to describe that place, I'll be back for sure.
