Anyone have updates on lake ice depth? Headed up in a week and a half if possible, but with the warm fall we had I'm not sure how things are looking,

Much appreciated!

(Just watched Tuscarora's video so maybe that answers my question, looks decent)

Spent a few nights on a shallow 4-500 acre lake last weekend. before the snow I found 4.5 to 8 inches of perfectly clear ice. The snow really drifted up, some areas had near bare ice while others had over a foot of snow. We ran into multiple slushy areas heading off the lake.

Around Ely many of the lakes have 7-9- inches.
