    Can any west sider locals provide any selective fishery lake ice reports?
    Was thinking of trying a lake this weekend but presume they'll need to thaw out for quite awhile.

    Lone had a lot of ice on the south end Sunday but I expect it will be clear for the weekend. The launch was clear but not a lot of open water.

    I can update you if you remind me with a note as the weekend approaches.

    Cady was still fine as of last Thursday. My line and guides were icing up, but the lake temp was still 43* at the surface. Larry came out and said outside temps had been dropping into the teens at night. On my way there I noticed the other lake just down the road (Tee Lake?) was icy, but I think the spring at Cady may keep it a little warmer for a little longer.
    Fishing was slow.
    Anyone know about RSL? (Mark??) Was going to try it last week but the winds were like 15-20 mph.

    Mark - Get well soon!

    Lone lake ice still extends out quite a ways from the southern shoreline. IMG95201312119514090095730.jpg

    Thanks Jeff for the update; guessing the thaw will take awhile. Cold temps for the west side.
    Anyone driven by Pass lake? I'd guess probably the same...usually the boat launch is the first/last area of a freeze.

    Fished Pass today for only a couple of hours.

    When I went out at noon there was ice at the launch area extending out about 60-70 feet and about 3/8 inch thick. Fortunately some one had been out and there was a narrow gap, enough to launch my pontoon but not wide enough to use oars. Hit a few frozen over spots before getting clear.

    I was the only one on the lake and came in after 2 hours of fishing when the wind really came up coupled with sideways rain.

    The launch area was pretty much clear of ice when I came in, but the first bay's East shore looked like the Lone Lake photo in this thread.

    Fish were friendly!

    Funny how ICE doesn't stop fish from eating! I think I might hit a few on Saturday myself.

    Just some thin ice floating around Steve. Have a great day on the lake. Nice out there and pretty warm.

    Was I suppose to be fishing? I had my indicator go down several times but it kept popping back up I think I got another defective one

    Too nice of a day not to try. Heading to Rattlesnake. Will report back on the ice.

    Yeah, a surprisingly good day. Fished from noon till 3:30. Landed six, a few LDRs, and countless missed takes.
