Tamarack Ice report

Checked the south end today.. someone was ahead of me drilling holes.. The cove at the outlet has 4 in. of ice Half white and half black.. AND WEAK.. Bounced quite a bit when walkin on it.. Also went to the H-pier, and the new black ice was 2 in. at best... didn't drive over to Springs rd. access Would guess it's 2 in. also.. Just wanted to give a report before any snow comes and covers what you could see from shore.. I'll probably give it a try after the cold comes back and stiffens up the 4 in I measured today.. NW/

    nw/jig Good to hear your report.
    Looks like the week of the 15th. will start it up.
    Too bad there's nothing but dink gills & crappies in there.
    There are Bass and Muskies but their not worth eating.

    You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

    Wait till hard -ice , and walk 200 yrds straight off the ramp at the Handi-cap pier... Compareable to BAY PERCH Wouldn't of believed it till I was proved WRONG

    nw/jig...Now you know there are only a few Perch in that lake like BAY PERCH. You caught all them biggens last year and those littlens haven't growed up yet.
    I'll have to check it out Saturday afternoon.
    Conneaught Lake should be ready soon also.
    Stay safe...

    Conneaute lake won't be ready anytime soon. Only about 200yd by 50yd chunk of skim ice floating loose on the south end. There is almost no ice on it at all.

    The worst day hunting or fishing will always be better then the best day at school or work!
