    Tim i would guess it looks like all of the lakes around here..iced over!!
    I know we have a warming trend going on, but it wont effect the real thick ice for awhile.

    Only water that i know of right now thats open around here is the Scioto river.
    I think it our ONLY shot in Columbus......BUT i do know a spot on the Ohio that
    is a bit warmer water than normal and an angler has reported a CARP being caught on chicken liver just the other day(wink). I will be checking this spot out for myself very soon.

    But the scioto is a good bet and we know fish are there.(will they bite is another question)

    With all the ice bergs and fast flow could we fish it saturday.......not sure, but its looking sad to me personally!!

    Well with this news it looks like I stay home tomorrow. I might still try to fish seeing as the temps might have the bite on but I sure won't be hitting any rivers (maybe Stonelick).
