    Deepwater creek back by the Game and Fish ramp is iced over solid as of this morning. Out past the first point west of the ramp.

    Fishable ice will be 11/16 with many people tempting it on the 17th.

    About a week before thanksgiving is when I’m hoping it will be safe to walk on. In the meantime; I may go to my favorite small town lake... throw a rock out there and watch it go through the ice and say “yep to early” then head to my favorite small town bar, drink a beer and eat a pizza

    I was on the ice on November 10th last year and this year it might be the same. Weather pattern is almost the same including the dang warm up in December that ruined some ice conditions

    Did you throw any rocks on it to see how thick it was?

    Stop throwing rocks on the ice. Get a spud bar.

    I was dumb enough to wader-fish last night, from about 5:15 til a little before 8. Missed two fish, one that might have been a good 'un. Plenty of ice on my rod, and waders. My boots stuck to the metal steps on my way out. Was 19 degrees, according to the vehicle.

    You clowns.. your ice is just around the corner..

    Nope, just a drive-by muttering to myself too early but someone will do it.

    that was the end of april. That is so depressing ---- Now were told no sun spots --- could be end of may till we see open water. in a couple years end of June. No sun spots caused the ice age. I will be ice fishing the big O in south florida.
