Not much of a brag report, rather just some info. I took the boys out today for a couple hours. Got on the ice around 1:00 or so. The lake had open water from the dam to Elk marina. I didn't go down to the marina but could see a cap. I saw some folks on the ice in the 2 areas past Elk marina. (not sure of the names) We fished in the inlet area in about 30'. It was a bit deep for my taste, but we did hit a nice Brown right off the bottom. We missed two others in the 2 hours we fished. The ice was a plenty at 12" or so. Cold as **** no better than 0*. The fish were hitting PB on little jigs. On our way home, we could see the ice growing. There was some ice in the Bay of Chickens.
