We live on the north end, we've had wheelers out for about 2 weeks now, and sleds out the last week. Lots of guys on the ice.

I went out of Whisky point which is on the east side of the lake towards the south. Was very easy walking from there. We targeted perch and did very well. got them on tip ups and jigging. Hope this helps.

Whisky is good on the south end, on the north end google "Grand Lake Marina" there is a roadside park there where guys park and walk straight out in a few directions for perch.
