Ice fishing is happening. Hopefully there won't be much or any rain on Monday. Let's let it stay cold for awhile.
Marcy over at the Hermann's Lowlife Bar and Grill send an email and some photos taken at Neilsen's Channel by Port Barrington which is just northwest of Lake Zurich. Here's what she said.
Okay, guys are out in main channels today, walking out from launch! Still some soft spots, but 2 1/2 inches mostly. Some snow & slush - not perfect conditions. Here's the photos, a couple of shanties out there. Marcy
Let's remember, this is first ice. It's new ice. And... most importantly, it's thin ice. Be careful out there.
