hadn't heard of anyone going through but can't say I'm surprised when I heard they were fishing on 1.5 inches. I think I'll wait until at least next weekend.

I saw that they were out on 1.5" on FB and I said to myself how long before folks go in?

There isn't a fish in the world to me thats worth taking a dip through the ice over.

Keep us posted Kurt. Right now im planning on being up saturday but if its not at least 4" ill wait and come up the following weekend.

The thing that really bothers me about this is that all over social media, there are pictures of people Ice fishing henrys lake... Next thing you know, somebody who doesn't know better assumes it is safe and brings their kid out on the ice. People who gloat online about fishing on 1.5" of ice are partially responsible for those who unknowingly follow them into the icy water.

To anyone out there who doesn't know, if you are standing on less than 4" of hard clear ice, you are at risk... And exponentially more risk with each inch less than that. You might be fine on 3", you might even be able to fish all day on 2"... If you fish 1.5" you're going to go through, sooner than later. Also, consider that a couple inches of slush on top of the ice on a sunny warm day will greatly degrade the quality of your ice. What was 3" of hard clear at 6am can be 2" of soft ice by 3pm.

Please be safe, people. early ice is very dangerous.

Having lost a good friend through the ice on both Henry's and Palisades I can tell you it's no joke out there and made much more dangerous with underwater springs that eats the ice from underneath. Safe ice is a must and knowing how to use a spud bar to check the ice even after it's considered safe is hugely important. Anything less is gambling with your life.

It was 46 degrees today up here and low is only going to be 31 degrees. It is supposed to get cold this weekend . If you are thinking about coming out I would wait awhile .

Stay very close to the bank . The guys that are going out are anchoring a rope to the bank and taking it out with them just in case. I have an Artic Armor floating suit , but I still don't want to see if it works .

Yeah I've always worn a self inflate PFD and ice hooks around my neck when fishing on early ice. You never really know.

The ice is almost gone and not safe . Drove all the way around the lake today . No safe ice we were going to fish , but the ice is back brown to 1.5 " fifteen ' off the bank .

Any news on ice thickness? I was hoping to fish Henrys Friday. I need at least 4" before I wander out.

Curt,
Is that ice report for the main lake? Or the thickest stuff you can find? Thanks J

looking at the forcast for the next 30 days there are too many days where the temperature is above freezing. There is a good chance that there will not be fishable ice till near Christmas if these forcasts hold

Forecasts are subject to change. I expect you'll see ice sooner than then. But who knows. Will be fun when it comes. Later J
