We have ice! My post last week predicted some nice ice to form and covered some safety precautions when venturing out on early ice. Well, there were a lot more people out fishing this past weekend than I would have guessed. There was a solid 6-8” of ice on the small-medium sized lakes around the area. We also missed most of the snow which is a good thing when it comes to making more ice.
As always still check the ice diligently for yourself prior to heading out, but there is a lot of safe walk-able ice around the area. There will be permanent houses and ATV’s out before the upcoming weekend. As always, exercise extreme caution and be safe!
