I may have to drive but the Pocono Plateau should have ice well into March if the predicted temps are close to accurate.

Fished a small pond in Gibson, Pa yesterday.   8" of good ice.  Wind was brutal!  Even jigging was difficult as wind would blow the line out of the hole.  I know why guys use hubs and flip overs, but I like being out in it.  But wind like that is a bit much.  Today is a perfect day.  Wish I got out.

With all the reports of candled ice, Honeycombed ice & talk of big bubbles. I think it's over for me. Falling thru 4 years ago was not something. I am in any rush to experience again. I want to go in the worst way  ::)

Fasten some 2x12ís about 8 foot long to your boots. You have to spread your weight out. Or maybe these⛷⛷⛷

The fat lady ain't singing yet but she is humming and shaking a leg. Being retired it has been a fun year so far but hope it isn't over yet.

Well has this thread finally come true?  I'd like to think not so where is there still some reasonable hardwater to fish in PA?  I was hoping to get one more weekend out this year!

I plan to be fishing well into March in NEPA!  ;)

I was fishing Lower Lake at Promised Land on Tuesday nite. It was 18* and ice was solid all the way to shore. Didnít measure, but had to be 10Ē.

It depends on the lake. Alot of the NEPA, Tioga County, and higher elevation lakes should survive for awhile yet, while some of the flood control reservoirs may not.

Sunday had to have plank bridge toget on decent ice. 3.5-maybe 4" ice. Just not very comfy on that. Is it over? No but your are taking a gamble now. How many times the ice got beat on and rain and runoff. Not trying to swim again

Its most likely over for me. Unless I find someone to make a road trip with up north. I still can go to tusk or chunk by myself. But have not really caught anything worth the 55 mile drive. At either lake this ice season. I have been fishing open water from shore & in my boat. Been catching some nice gills & a few crappies. I do miss being on the ice. Jigging up suspended crappies with my vex. But Im getting plenty of action & fish to eat. Open water fishing  :icefish:

not over yet in Wayne county. Fished Prompton yesterday. Ice was over a foot. I have a hand auger and it took around 40 cranks to cut through... didn't drill very many holes.

It definitely wasn't over yesterday when that front roared through.  The fish were on fire.

It seems like its over or almost over for alot of us. Reading alot of report's. It seems like the ice on alot of lakes is detieourating rather quickly. Or its not the greatest ice. I am probably done. Unless I find someone to make a road trip with.  :'(

i was up on Shohola Saturday ice was 12 inches, first boat ramp could walk right on. Would like to make another trip this weekend but ice conditions could be bad from the big winds. If anybody has any info on the conditions it would greatly be appreciated thanks.

I was in Wyoming county Saturday had 15 inches of ice. Would think it's not over for a couple of weeks. Shola should be fine.

with next weeks forecast for the start of the month to be very cold, I would suspect the ice (at least in the northern lakes ) might make it until the end of March
