If you have your sled or shack stored here this would be a good weekend to pick them up if you are done fishing. Warm weather next week will make it very, very muddy here.As far as the ice and fishing goes—it’s been slow for walleye and good for perch. There is 1-8 inches of ice. Move cautiously and drill your way out there. Thickness is very inconsistent and changes over very short distances.Stay away from structures, islands, and points! See MoreSee Less
