Made the long drive back to my old stomping grounds yesterday. Ice was  acceptable but not great. Hill country did not allow the wind to sweep the snow off. So, ice varied from 3" to 8". I don't fish the roadbed so I'm not sure how it faired. I'd imagine it was better since foot traffic and holes allowed cold to contact the ice. Managed 1 keeper eye, bass and crappie, and six dink cats. Lake has always been clear. Zebra mussles have made it too clear. I could see the bottom in 15' were I was fishing. Pretty tough to fool heavily pursued fish in those conditions. They recognize the fakes too easily.
