Currently, most of the small, shallow lakes, and wind protected bays in our area have between 2″ – 5″ of ice. There is no safe ice on the main basins of the deeper bigger lakes in the area.
If venturing out, use a spud bar to check the ice as you walk out, wear a life jacket or floating suit and safety picks, and bring a throw cushion. Never go alone and never assume there is safe ice if you see another angler on the ice. Avoid areas near springs and current
