How's it going everybody, would like to hear if anybody has any ice reports at Collingwood, I fished there all last season and was wondering if it's safe to walk out there right now, thanks for anyone's input

I fished the north end of the lake today targeting pike. Arrived late but still managed a couple on the ice riggers.

I was fishing the very north end of the Lake. I have not been to Collingwood yet this ice season. I have been as far south as the Duval road and ice there is 12 inches or so. I am pretty sure Collingwood would be safe for walking but have not been there yet to look around.

  Etters Beach is a good ice fishing area for perch and Walleye. If you explore South of there I am sure you will find yourself some good spots.

Usually a pretty good perch bite anywhere north or south of etters.  it picks up in jan-feb.  get out to the middle of the lake.  Some walleye there too but i find more and bigger farther south.   collingwood, whiterock and south to rowans and stone barn areas.  More depth and structure there seems to hold the eyes thru the winter

Fished East of Triple T in the middle of the lake today. 14 inches of good ice. There are a few small heaves near the east side of the lake. Fishing was slow but between the two of us we managed 1 Walleye 3 Jumbo perch  8 smaller perch and a Tullibee. Fished depths from 25 to 32 feet probably should have gone shallower as there was more action at 25 feet.

Anyone know ice conditions at glen harbour? It would be nice to make a quick trip after work this week but i know it usually takes a bit to get good ice there.

Ive been out to sarnia, which had 7 inches 2 weeks ago, and up to north of rowans twice. Good solid 10 inches there now. Stone barn was a little sketchy a week ago with the heave opening up down the middle of the bay while we were there.

Are shacks gonna make it out on collingwood this week? Ppl are saying 12" of solid ice. This weeks temperature shouldn't be too much of a threat right? Lol

Maybe with a sled dog team you could pull your shack out. Hearing theres a heave to cross at the launch and with this warm weather you wont catch me out there unless im on foot. But each to their own lol

Yeah made it out to Collingwood last weekend. There is a heave across right out in front of the launch but it comes right up to the island on the north end.  So a guy could prob cross it right on the north end of the launch close to the island shore. We crossed it about 40 yards out into the lake and there was no problem but that was before the warm weather.

Collingwood is 12”, some shacks are out on ice. Still heave out from boat launch. Think shacks are coming on from island.

There used to be an ad on Kijiji for LML fishing shack rentals. You could check there.

Posted on one of the facebook fishing groups was a picture of buddy on the ice at midway road with his 1ton and what looked like a 18ft enclosed trailer, he claimed to have crossed the heave with it. Careful out there everyone

Any updates on LML going from Wee-two south, and Stone Barn North? Anyone been out and got a recent ice measurement? Would love to go out on Boxing day, but don't want to go swimming.........
