Ice Report:

The Ice thickness went from 9 inches (around Sin Clair Point) up to 11 inches (around Beacon Island) to about 10 inches everywhere else as of Sunday.

I needed 12 inches not to where a speedo in Wally's (I lost a bet) but that's alright because a week earlier there wasn't any ice in the center.
The entire Lake froze as one good sheet of solid clear ice. 

There already are some Ice heaves and ridges at the usual spots in front of Lanzi's on the Lake, but the ice is safe to ride all the way from Lakeside Tavern to Ponderosa Pines. Northeast of that use caution.

Everything is good to Sport Island past the Northville Bridge. The ice had spots of snow on ice in the middle towards Broadalbin perfect for putting out shanty's which a lot of people did.

Now with today's 6 inches or so of snow and the little rain in top and 0 degree nights coming should make perfect snowmobiling conditions for the upcoming weekend.

Will be over a foot of ice everywhere this weekend. A safe amount for any activities.

Fishing:

Fishing has been average with reports of Walleye and perch mostly caught.

Tip of the Week:

If you are going to ride your sled on glare ice, stud it. Its cheaper in the long run ...
