Yesterday temps crept up to 37 degrees fahrenheit. The ice began to get a little slushy. Today, it was terrible weather for maintaining ice. It reached about 43 degrees and rained all morning. Now the ice is unsafe to go out on. Tonight and tomorrow is going to be cold again and it might tighten up, but there are going to be dangerous spots. I am hearing reports of people falling through daily, so venture out knowing that you might crash through.
I would wait until Sunday February 10, 2013 to go out at the earliest. Sure it is great fun to catch fish through the ice but it's not worth the risk of plunging through into water that is so cold it burns when you go through. Be very careful if you go out Sunday and stick to other people's tracks. When you venture out onto new spots it increases the danger.
Presque Isle Bay open bay ice is not safe. Don't go on it yet. Misery Bay and Horseshoe Pond have ice but it is barely fishable and less than a couple inches in spots.
