5-12 inches of ice cover the lakes and bays of CNY, and ice fishers are reveling in the chance to finally get out and cast a line. Reports of hundreds of ice fishers taking to the ice mark the change from our strangely warm and wet winter this year into the frigid ice block we all know and love.
Bait shops are the best point of contact if you want to get out there, they usually have the latest scoop on ice thickness and safety. The days are gonna continue to get icier going into this weekend, so the conditions are expected to get more and more perfect for sportsman looking to drop a line.
