Just drove by Fair Haven. There a few people out just past the grass by the Raft. Then went past the DNR access/ boat launch few guys out there 2. Stopped at my marina seems to be about 4 inches in the canal
Drove down to the Coast Guard Station at 8pm last night to have a look. There was ice from Metro all the way down to 9 mile but it only goes out a couple of hundred yards from the shore and most looked to be still skim ice. Maybe by the weekend we will have good ice.
Will be going back out again today with the auger. If safe I will attempt to make a few holes in a couple of different locations and report back in tomorrow with the depths. I am planning on hitting the Coast Guard Station, then over to the Spillway area and then over to Anchor Bay. Time to break out the life vest and the neoprenes.
This morning up by Fairhaven there was probably about 50 people out fishing. Maybe about twenty shanties and they were actually pretty far out there considering it was open water everywhere last Sunday. No one driving anything motorized yet though!
