Ice check (Red Feathers) for some kiddies......
A family event this coming weekend gives me the opportunity to entertain 5 little ones, all of whom have never ice fished.

Myself and two other adults will be leading the booger-pickin' pack.

Looking to hit my #1 kiddie lake, Bellaire.

Highs have been in the 20s and lows in the 10's.

Anyone have any scouting intel that would lead me to believe it would be safely capped this weekend?

Much appreciated,

I drove by Dowdy and West Lakes yesterday and they both are fully iced over now. But Monday they had more open water than ice. Also some of the private lakes in the area still have some open water on them. I have no idea how thick the ice is, but personally I am going to wait before I get out on it. The gates for Bellaire are closed so you have to walk in, but it's only a 10 minute walk.
