Went to Viking Lake State Park by Stanton Ia last Sat & Sun afternoon.  Found 6.5 inches of soft ice and fishing was very slow catching a few small bluegills. 

The road down to the pontoon docks is blocked off at the top of the hill but the East side of the lake by camp Aldersgate was open and could get close to the water.

What's the snow situation at Anita or Viking  has anyone been there recently or in the area to know how bad it got? was thinking of going to one or the other tomorrow but didn't want to drive an hour to be shot down. I realize we had a blizzard but just curious if it was as bad there as in CB.

Went to a farm pond North of Red Oak Sat afternoon.  Deep snow drifts getting there and lucky I didn't get stuck getting out. 14" of ice and maybe 4" of snow on top, caught and released 8-10 bass but only two bluegills.

Icaria has about 14 inches of solid ice with about 4 inches of frozen slush snow on top. Overall it still shaved decently. Bite was slow.

Packed it up today. Baits dead. Waters dirty. Time to get the long poles out. Had a very  good year. Sad day but ready for the spring crappie bite!
