    Anyone wondering about the ice on ponds around the area, I went out and drilled a couple tests on some local ponds today. Ice was measuring around 4 and 1/2 inches. Good ice, with a couple inches of dry snow on top. Hopefully the snow thats predicted for Thursday, won't hurt it any. Getting the gear together, and hopefully will be out soon. Just an FYI.. Goodluck.....rollo

    Good luck out there! The only way I am ice fishing is if I am sitting on the ice in a flat bottom jon boat, that way if the ice goes I'm in a boat :)

    I checked my pond this afternoon just West of Dayton, had right at 4" of good clear ice with a light dusting on top of dry snow.
    Me and Dinkbuster are gonna be trying for some of my cats this weekend if all goes well. I agree that if we get snow, it at least will be dry and not a wet snow but we could do without the snow. I plan on shoveling a bunch of snow off my pond this year after the mild fishkill I had last year with heavy snow cover on the pond and no open area for sunlight/photosenthysis to help oxygenate the waters.
