Here is an exact quote from FishDr.............only a couple days old

Carter was mostly frozen though there is a big patch of open water near the inlet, but at least 100 yds offshore. There is some open water (30 - 60' wide) extending from the N. ramp about 200 yds to the west.
Lonetree has a complete lid on it, but the ice looked very thin, sketchy, and pock-marked.
Lon Hagler also had a complete lid on it. It looked like someone had tried drilling a few test holes and gave up within 2 yds of the shore. I'd stay off the ice there as well.
Maybe I'll make the run south to see if I can't find somewhere to take the swimbaits swimming...they're itching to get wet!
