Looks like you took one for the team. I checked today too. At the shoreline where multiple layers of broken ice had formed there was 6". Once I got past that at a water depth of about 2' there was only 2". I don't see much of a change for the near future, temperatures are mild and the lake is still cooling... Yes unfortunately the ice cap formed before the lake reached the magic temperature of 4C. Now the lake has to still cool the entire water column, which will slow down the ice growth for the near future.,

Lakes don't freeze solid until you get turnover. I was on the water every week from the beginning of Sept until the west arm froze over. In terms of temps, we were below seasonal from the 2nd week of Oct until mid Nov. I broke ice (unexpectedly) Nov 4th. It was not a flash freeze and there is no more "cooling off" the water column has to do.

Do you mean crappie? Or are you referencing my Cuba fishing episode?

Take a look at the link above "Ice Hut Rentals"

All the information you need for a operator is all there and Im sure all the operators listed there is top notch!

Go back and read through the posts from January to March 2018, all of your questions will be answered on these posts. I would think most operators will be booked for January 1st but you will find some posts referencing walk on spots.
