If it stays this cold we should have safe ice then for sure. I know anglers are chomping at the bit to get on the ice. One messaged me about Lake Lansing and I sure wouldn't be ready to go out there in the next few days no matter how bad I wanted out there! Wait for 4 inches or so minimum of new good ice just to be safe.

The wind died this morning and ice started forming on my lake.  Looks like winter is here

Had a little over 4 inches Saturday in west Michigan. Had to sift through the small ones a bit, but caught a quick 4 man limit. Bite was non stop!

With 2 tragic losses last week and what sounds like dozens of close calls be careful out there....With all this warm weather and wind I could see things turning bad in a hurry...

Wow that is awful. I'll never go ice fishing and risk my life.  Honestly sitting on a block of ice looking through a hole waiting for something to swim by and eat my bait. . . You can keep the ice fishing. I don't want anything to do with it. I'd rather wait till late March or early April to be on the Detroit River or St. Clair in my Skeeter FX20.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Ice fishing is all about the Snacks and Hot toddies...lol..I actually enjoy the getting back to basics and laid back atmosphere of ice fishing....It's kind of fun to chase around Panfish for a change....The action is actually pretty fast and furious at times..It isn't Smallies or Walleye fishing in the spring though that is for sure..
Merry Christmas..

I'm waiting a while yet for my ice fishing. It's better than not fishing!
