I spent an hour typing up a detailed report and lost it Mad , so here's an abbreviated report. I fished with jonnyfly00 (aka Jon). We got on the ice at the state boat launch ramp and stayed out from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm. The sky was totally overcast all day. There was only a light south breeze with periods of no wind at all. The air temperature rose from the low 30s to the low 40s while we were on the ice. Although the southwest quarter of the lake is open, we found seven inches of ice almost everywhere. The thinnest ice I saw was still six inches thick! Very Happy The ice moaned and groaned all day. It even made noises like an approaching jet airplane that would suddenly disappear like Amelia Earhart. Laughing We each jigged up lots of yellow perch, mostly in eight to nine feet of water. I jigged up our only sunny and our only chain pickerel. Jon got three flags; one wind, one fish that got off in the weeds and one nice largemouth bass. I got no flags, but a decent perch magically replaced the large shiner that I had set on one of my traps. Shocked Okay, here are some photos. My first two perch were tiny:




But the third one and everything after was decent:



The sunny:



Jon's 18 inch bass:





My magic 9-1/2 inch perch:



The pickerel:



Jon and I both think that the ice will hold up for a while. It was solid and super thick on the west shore, and was totally locked to the ramp. We didn't get any flags and got very little while jigging in the deeper water beyond the weedline. If you head out there, brave the weeds! That's where I'll be. Wink

Noob - That far out, my guess would be as good as our local meteorologists'; in other words, probably wrong! I'd bet that it'll be fine this weekend, though.

Hi Nooby,

OK! Below is the URL for the NOAA Wx site.

Type in the "name of the town" where the lake/pond you want to fish is located.
Go to the map shown and zoom in and locate the lake/pond then click on the middle of it

The 7 day Wx for that particular lake/pond will come up.

Now read each day's Wx -> Temps, Wind, Type of Precipatation and %

www.noaa.gov/wx.html

Learn this information you'll be able to make your own determination if there may be decent ice where you want to go. Also for all year fishing.

The first two perch were smaller than our shiners. Shocked All told, we probably jigged up a couple of dozen. They ranged from four to 10 inches long, although most were probably around eight inches long.
