I was just thinking the same thing! Thinking I might get out this weekend, not sure where to go. Haven't spoken to anybody about any decent spots. Don't ice fish much. But would like to do some more. Very north central in. Not a ton of lakes up here. Any info would be much appreciated!

I saw a couple of guys on the bay at Coldwater Lake when I went to Michigan earlier this week, but haven't heard of anyone doing much around NE In. in the last week or so.

Well, things aren't looking good for ice. Mother Nature needs to wake up and send some arctic temps our way.
Had a buddy ask me to go to Northern Minn next week to fish, but I couldn't swing it. Still hoping for some cold here.

Going back to about 2005 there was a long stretch were we had ice the last saturday in Feb here in the Morgan/Putnam Co. area .
I would do the polar punge at Eagle Creek that day, then leave to meet my buddies to ice fish several years in a row. I don't have much confidence in getting ice by then, but I will still cross my fingers.
I have tried to post video of me and my buddy from a few years ago. We were getting our first ice so i called him and he said head over, his pond was good. Got there and he hadn't actually checked, and there was only about 2", maybe. So, not to be denied, we took his two small john boats, slid one on the ice, got in it, slid the other past it, got in the second, and did that til we got to our spot. We then drilled some holes around the boats and preceeded to fill our buckets.

That looks pretty slick! I fished in one a couple years ago on lake simco that had seats on each side and basically two trenches cut in the ice for each side. It was the most comfortable shack I’ve fished out of!
