  1. Curious if anyone fished PI this last weekend, wondering how the ice is looking. Any reports greatly appreciated.

    On Saturday I went out of the boat launch on the city side ( near Chestnut St.) and the ice was real good, even at the shore. I didn't measure, but probably about 8" to 9" mostly clear. The fishing was poor, for me. I caught only about a dozen undersize perch in water from 19ft to 14ft. A snowstorm came through that made whiteout conditions for a while. The wind was fairly brutal.

  3. We fished saturday out of lot #2 ice was about 8 or 9 inches with some snow on top.we fished between lot 1 and 2 about 250 yds out 10 ft water over weed beds gills all day same as all ways only 2 perch.Ice was broken at the shore when we came in at night but not to bad.Saw a lot of open water out at Mesiery Bay going clear to the main chanel to lake erie.
