    well heres my report for mosquito lake. i went to the (south end) near the beach today and it was 35% covered by the shore but it is still pretty much open water all the way up to the north end. (north end) the north side of the causeway is about 60% locked has about 2 to 3 inches on it. but dont take my full word on it (fish at your own risk) the south side of the causeway is pretty much open, i walked out on it drilled a hole and theres suprisingly about 4'' of ice on it. i was suprised. only walked out about 5 feet from shore and it is nice clear ice. i didnt want to go any further being by myself and all (i dont play with dynamite). so hopfully by newyears it will be good to go, but this is ohio so you never know what the weather is going to be like.

    Thanks Fishmaster.
    I've got 2 weeks off until the 5th of Jan. Figures, we may have ice by then or we may not. The little warm up next week isn't gonna hurt much, but it surely won't help any! Will keep an eye out for your reports....

  14. ..fish master..Was anyone else out up there..The wind had to be bad it sure was windy down here..Can't be too careful with the son ..and open water...C.L...
     
  15. Looking to fish Mosquito this year never ice fished their, fished in my boat alot, but would like to ice fish if any one would like to hook up some time any ice fish let me know. I am free most of the time and really don't know wear to ice fish their or when it is safe. I can't drive their to check the ice cause I live in akron.

    yay thats y i stayed close to shore the farther i got out the thiner it got ill fish on 3" but wont take him out unless its 5 or more, (the wind dont get me started on that):confused: it was like 40 to 50 mph my shanty was moving faster then i was. had the whole lake to myself but wasnt feeling adventerus with son in tow. hes not to ice savie yet,but he will be a die hard like me. i will be going back this weekend to see the progress since we has this -22 wsf. -fish master-:B
     
  17. forecast is calling for a real warm up with rain...should set things back a few weeks...go figure.
     
  18. ...fish master..Glad to hear you were thinking safety all the time out there...I figured that the wind was strong...I always did say if any storm , wind or lightning comes up it will make it to Mosquito...But i love the lake...This warming we are to have comming up could slow everything down for a while..You are braver than I am...open water out there I stay off the ice...
    ...BE CAREFUL...C.L...

    I'm wondering how it looks today, after these last 2 days.....I'm thinking that the North end just below the wildlife area might be good. The area north of the causeway should all be safe. Anybody close have any ideas? Thanks in advance!!
