Shabbona Lake Ice update
« on: Jan 21, 2019, 04:45 PM »
Ice update!

Most of the lake is covered in ice. There are open pockets of water that are freezing up in the deep trees and out by the road bed. The geese are fighting a losing battle trying to keep the pockets open.

There was some anglers fishing the campground cribs this morning. I did not get a chance to speak with them.

Some more anglers fished somonauk bay and said the ice there was around 5 inches.

I drilled some holes in the boat rental bay and found around 5 inches as well.

I do not have any reports south of the baitshop.

As always no ice is safe ice and ice thickness can vary quickly. Always check thickness for yourself.

Lakeside Bait and Tackle will have bait delivered tomorrow Tuesday Jan 22nd mid day. Lakeside will be open seven days a week 8 am to 2 pm. We have a full line of bait, a large selection of ice fishing tackle and rental equipment. Rental equipment includes flashers, cameras, power auger and one man tent.
