How far of a drag is it from Catawba Island State Park to get into a fecemt walleye area? Is it too far to drag meaning I should bring my teenager as labor?

A mile or 2 nw of Catawba state park these are from 2 trips last year



 
Funniest thing about ice fishing for me is when people who know nothing about ice activities try to warn me about the dangers of the ice...

It sucks we don't have NOAA satellite images... I might be taking a day or 2 off work next week. Guys around Catawba please update after this weather moves through how we're looking. I'm more than ready for a hike!

Took a ride to Catawba today. Ice is pretty broke up and open water is not that far off state park. (Saw white caps today). All open just a little east of ferry dock. Still ice between the cliffs and pib. I hope tomorrow that the ice survives the wind. On the bright side starting over with temps coming  probley won't be that bad with the rough stuff I saw today.

The west wind has played havoc on the ice at erie in erie metro park in michigan.. k?
The ice is pushed away from shore on the west wind you can't even spud out the ice for 10 feet from shore is fresh freeze every couple days and is very soft.. if you go 20 foot out loos Ike 1 to 1.5 inches of ice..  I urge caution by the way this pick is what look like eagle or sone kind of huge bird sitting on ice on erie?? And no way to get oout and fish.. i first thought they were fisher men asked the lady in car next to me if it was fishermen..  she said no it was birds so I walk to edge and did not even bother spudding out!!  cause the ice was so bad all I can do is urge caution .. by the way fish were not bitting I think there over presured already..limit space caused by limited ice.. that was ware I was fishing.. siting  on tip of the dock cause ice was that bad!! I went to point mouliee and same thing every ware else.. so just a heads up of sorts hope you can fish off a dock and drill hole in ice and sit on the dock cause great lakes ice just is not good yet!! On erie around here yet..

The lake is locking up around PC and Marblehead. There were a few people testing the ice by the Catawba State Launch today. I would say by Sunday or Monday we might be able to go out a few miles. Next weekend for sure.
The ice is good in East Harbor. About 20 flip shantys out there today.

 I flew supplies to put in Bay today and will return tomorrow to fish for eight days. There are about 30 shanties out towards Rattlesnake Island and the ramps on both the new and old are in good shape.

Beautiful day on the ice, 1/2 mile out from the new ice ramp towards Rattlesnake island. Forty or so shanties and a few bucket fishermen. Catching fish but slowly.

Just a heads up Monday calling for gusts at 50 mph in michigan.   so you know the ice is not going to last.   might be last trip for year  for this weekend for a lot if people.

If the ice off the west shore holds thru sun, I think were good for a couple more weeks...Gale force winds will really test it...If it blows up were done...
