I went up to 11mile (on Wed.) to check on the ice for this weekend. There currently is only ice at Cross Creek and the inlet... I didnt go out on it and it didnt look very safe, but with a couple more days of 10 degree weather in the days and subzero at night it might be safe by Saturday. I drove around the entire lake everywhere else had no ice to about 6 ft in the very end of the coves. I didnt have time to drive to Tarryall to check out the ice up there but I know a couple people who iced it and said it was 3-4" on Sunday... but there was still open water to. With the cold front it should have a complete lid by Saturday I would think.
I'd rather everyone be safe at a get together, enjoy themselves, and hopefully catch some fish, so what do you guys think?
