Just off the Fish Erie board. 1-17 post, head of the bay has skim ice with Misery Bay starting to freeze over. 1-18 post, ice stretching across P I bay, some patches of open water in deeper sections. My friend called Hansons Bait yesterday, said to give him a call back this weekend, might be able to get on it. Misery Bay will probably be the first safe ice, a little shallow, lots of gills and some crappie, a few steelies, not as many perch. Great place to get started before the main bay is safe. Probably take a ride up this weekend, will post a report. I knew that the dance would not fail us Big Daddy.
