Marcy from Hermann’s Lowlife Bar and Grill sent a new report on the ice at Neilsen’s Channel. Still a bit too thin for me.
“We have 2 and a half inches of ice.” Marcy said. “Ten cars are here, they are all fishing out in front. I think they are nuts! ”
Marcy wants to send out the message that going out on thin ice like this is at your own risk. She doesn’t consider it safe, nor do I.
“The shoreline has water on ice, possibly the Lower Fox water level is rising.” Marcy went on to say. “One guy who came in said he got some stripers & gills. He walked around down the street, didn’t go on by launch. But I think some others did walk on at the launch.”
Don’t forget to keep safety in mind when walking on new ice. We’ll have some freezing temperatures for the next few days leading up to the weekend. Maybe Sunday there will be a solid 4 inches. Check back as Marcy is pretty good on sending out the ice reports and I’ll post them here on the blog.
