Just wondering if anybody out there has been keeping an eye on some of the lakes and ponds and if they would like to share any info? Going to go out tomorrow with my spud bar and take a ride to Nimi and see if I can get a thickness or an eye check to see if it is even trying to make ice after this warm weather. Will bring a rod with me in case it's wide open and try my luck. Will post tomorrow.

Thanks for checking.  My work is going to be slowing down now, so ice is needed!

Yeah went by also and could see that it wasn't going to be good as I went by Eddie's bait shop and seen all that open water. I know that the brain needs sunlight (at least that's what I've heard) but the lakes sure don't. C4 might have a half inch, but it's open before it hits the big water. The boys with the motor sleds should be able by the end of the week. Anybody heard anything about Mosquito?

Skim ice is just starting to form on Grand Lake St. Marys.  About 1" of snow at noon on 1-12-2019.  It will take lots of cold weather to get good enough ice to walk on if we get the 3-5" of snow expected to fall.  It could be a wash this season if things don't cool off big time.  Such a bummer of a season!  I am still thinking of taking a trip to get in some hardwater action.

Went by Nesmith and PLX in a couple other spots and saw lots of skim and tons of open water still.  The wind didnít help freeze things up, but if we get this snow it might be a blessing it didnít freeze up.  After today no snow through next Friday at least and lows in the teens at night so we might be good to go by next weekend!

Thereís no pic.  What did you see IBJ?   If itís fishable I will be there for sure on Tuesday, mid to late morning probably.  Hoping you werenít posting to say the snow ruined it.

Just got back from Nimi and there were guys out fishing, said that there was about 2.5 inches and they were out about 30 yards set up in Hubs and a couple of guys coming off the ice. Said that they caught some gills but nothing big. Anybody heading out tomorrow, if so see you there.

Use extreme caution and spud your way on and off the ice. I know all of us are anxious to get on the ice but err on the safety side.

That was at C4 or whatever they call that cove on the left as you head into the camp grounds.
