Tim ventured out on to the ice this morning.  He was out about 450 yards and had 3″ of ice.  There was pretty much 3-4″ consistently in the path he took out.  Isle Bay is fishable but we recommend you stay away from bull rushes.  Winds are supposed to pick up later today so be sure to stay aware of what’s happening around you and ice conditions can quickly change.
Tim checks the ice by walking out a little ways then hit the ice with his spud.  This is the same spud he has used for 20 years and if it goes through the ice on one whack he turns around.
His measuring stick is a piece of PVC marked off in inches with a right angle that he hooks on bottom of ice. He checks pretty much the same spots for awhile to give an idea of how much ice is accumulating. This doesn’t mean it won’t be more or less in other areas so always check for yourself.
