I went, I saw, I fished, I lost one at the hole, stupid fish.
 
The ice was certainly showing some results of the sunshine and warm temperatures today with water appearing along some shore edges and stress cracks.   RT 18 causeway is now open water and I would expect that to continue and grow larger over the next couple of days.
 
As nightfall set in, thin surface slush created by the warm temperature began refreezing and creating a bit of slippy conditions requiring, some light footwork to keep from falling on ones azz.
 
Having spent many hours over the past two weeks walking on clear ice, I now have a better understanding as to why Penguins waddle when they walk.

Fished up around Tuttle yesterday 7-2. Ice was 6-7" and in great shape in the am. By the time we left the top 2" was very soft, and anywhere there had been snow lying had turned to slop. 1 17" eye, 1 10" crappie, and numerous 8" perch all on tipups. Couldn't buy one on the jigging rod. Buddy had a huge cat that ran 150yds or better of line snap the monofilament at the hole. Not sure we would've even got it thru the 6" hole anyway. Not a stellar day, but had lotsa fun with the flags. Was gonna give it a shot this morning, but it was getting a little soft for my liking. Hoping a layer of ice stays on the lake till Thursday. Looks like another cold snap then.

Thanks crappie_slayer; congratulations on the catching with the tip-ups, that's awesome when ya catch em that way.
 
I saw the temperature this morning and figured I'd back up and regroup, maybe take a look at the open criks til 'Old Man Winter' decides what he is gonna do after he meets with 'Phil' Tuesday morning.
 
Found this video a couple dudes made pertaining to falling through the ice.  When you first see the video you may, as I did, feel there was too much clowning around but after watching the video, I think they were trying to stress there's no need to panic.

I can't speak for the entire lake but, I know it's open water from the Jamestown Marina to the dam.  From the Jamestown boat launch north to Snodgrass there was a mix of ice and water with open shore line.
 
If it weren't for ice still remaining at the launch ramp, I and the Fish Hawk, along with a buddy or two (it's getting close Marcos & Rob), would be on the water...... 10-4!!!
 
If The Weather Clowns get it half right, the forecast is calling for mid thirties starting next week and low forties by weeks end.

They are calling for teens to single digits for Meadville and Erie area for the next six days. 
 
So what you are saying is that the tournament is not going to happen.
Looks like the season has come to an end already
maybe next year we can get out and fish more

Just reporting the conditions I saw while fishing the Jamestown Marina area.  
 
Whether the tournament happens remains to be seen but I can tell you this, it will happen without me...10-4!!

Was looking forward to the cold temps making ice this weekend, but if we get the snow they're calling for the next day or two its gonna put a real damper on it. Probably ride out and check out the north end Thursday or Friday anyway.

I've been busy sitting around watching the weather until today when I fired up the WheelHorse and played in the fluffy white snow.
 
Only hearing rumors about the ice conditions on different areas of the lake.
 
Sure will be waiting to hear your report Crappie_Slayer, I'm not fishing the tournament but would enjoy hanging around and, see how things turn out.

Re: ANYONE GOT ICE???????? 2016/02/12 07:40:29 (permalink)
(copied from my ice shanty report)
 
Checked around Tuttle last Saturday and it looked like the ice might make it. Today's check was.disappointing. Area around the beach looked sketchy at best, with some open water off the point to the right.

Drove down to the point, and what was a 4ft gap Saturday was now 60+ yds.

Drove across the causeway and the majority was open water. Hate to be a naysayer, but I think pymy's ice season is done this year. At least I got some cheap gas in Andover while I was out that way.

With all the open water on the Ohio side, the WNW wind yesterday was putting a real beating on the ice that was still there.  If it wasn't gonna be in the single digits tomorrow I'd probably be looking into getting the boat on Conneaut Lake, which was WIDE open yesterday.  Oh well, getting a new puppy this weekend so I guess that'll take up the time that I'm not ice fishing.

Crappie_Slayer congratulations on your new pup........ what and pictures?
 
Thanks for the pictures and 'heads-up' on the ice situation at Pymie.  On one hand I'm sorry to see the ice melting so early in the season yet, on the other hand I'm happy to see open water so early in the year.  Does that make me a "flip flopper"?
 
I received a PM from Outasync ,last night regarding Pymie, that is posted on Facebook and I'll pass it along.   Those fishing the tournament this weekend may find the information somewhat disturbing.

Also heard from a really reliable source, Lake Arthur is open.
 
Hope to see ya, and the new pup too, on the water soon.

A report on Arthur MC would be nice,I heard there's 4 inches in the back by the dead end road,and some open water by 528 which always is the last to freeze. Not my favorite lake but,it's the only show in town. I can always get numbers of 7- 7.5  gills. I know where to get decent crappie,pretty consistent by I don't think the ice will be good in that area. I thinking  Monday it should be at least ready if not it's a wrap for ice.

I'm headed down to Presque isle bay for lunch to check the ice.  I will have an answer on if there is fishable ice out there.  Keeping my fingers and toes crossed maybe get a couple of days in.

For your leisure reading check out the following link regarding ice conditions at Pymie.  Also, for those who have or who may in the future, be observed by a drone while you fish Pymie, check the video and note the name of the 'producer', just for future reference.  
 
I hear fishing line and drone props do not mix well, but that may be just a rumor.

The 10" or so of snow we got on top of the new ice aft pymy can't be good. Warmup this weekend. I'm definitely putting up the ice stuff and getting the waders and boat ready for the open water. New boat buddy.

Pretty pup Crappie_Slayer congratulations, once again.  As for stowing the ice gear, BTDT last week and getting ready to install some new toys in the boat.  Tuned the motors, changed the oil and replaced the lube in the lower units, I'm a raring to go 10-4.  But first, I must fire up the WheelHorse, engage her snowblower and chuck driveway gravel across the yard.
 
 
                                                  Boat Buddies..........  I think NOT!!!

Is that an English Pointer with the Wiemeranner?

Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.
