Fished around Edgewater and 55th yesterday...Ice was 6-8" at Edgewater and 4-6" around 55th. The only fish I caught was 1 Smelt, which might be a good sign for you Smelters. I have no electronics so really dont know where to concentrate, or if its even worth fishing these areas during the winter. Also drilled some holes in the Rocky River...ice was fine there as well. Sure got cold when the sun went away.
