Just got in from checking the ice  out on the main lake.  2-3 inches was all I found with about 4 to 5 inches of snow on it. The water just below the ice isn’t cold enough to freeze and the snow on top of it is insulating the cold from getting to it. We need cold weather, and no more  snow. The ice won’t change much until then.  I’ve heard reports of 5-7 inches in the bays, even with that there were reports of rescues yesterday.   It’s just not enough ice out there to take chances on, especially outside of the bays, and with the snow cover you will not know where the changes of thickness of the ice is. So for now……we wait….
