Any reports of ice conditions and smelt fishing would be appreciated. Heading up the first weekend in March.

Thanks

Lots of ice
People were driving cars on it when I was there the weekend of the 18/19.
Smelt were there, but not much of a bite the night we went.
Couldn't make it out on the 18th due to extreme winds

I do know of a guy who put his side-by side through the ice on the north shore of Higgins Lake, last week.  Like anywhere else, there is no such thing as "safe" ice.

Was that the one that went thru inthe channel between the boat launch and th elake. That area always scared me a little and I quit going out of it with my uad. Those retaining walls hold heat and melt the ice a ways out. Just go off the beach thru the park. Thw DNR marked that ramp a few years ago so you could not get on the lake  that way. I have not been over there this year but I saw pictures of the sid eby side thru the  ice

Looking for an ice report. Thinking about heading up from Saginaw in the morning.
