Great ice report as always. Your reports are always up-to-date and give just the right amount of relevant safety information any fisherman needs to know for what to expect.

Thank you for your reports 🎣❄

I saw a huge sturgeon on the camera at Otsego Lake today. Fishing was slow though.

Thanks

As I am down in the southwest corner I greatly appreciate your updates. Thank you.
