I just typed a detailed report on things at the north end and the Internet connection dropped and it all went up in smoke and I just don't have the heart to do it all over again so I'll just say this:it appears the only possible access is the extreme north end at Kershaw and Muar House and with a long walk to what looks like about 15 ft of water possible with ice coverage.I'll include the pics for your review. I tried to name the pics for the spots and the direction (e.g. NE S etc.) Butler is VERY unsafe and undoable right now. The east side pull off area the ice is all broken up and mostly open water with the west wind today. On the west side the bubblers around docks are going full blast. Hopefully this may save some folks on gas and time scouting it out. The pics were taken about 2PM this afternoon. TIP: Place your mouse  over the thumbnail pics to see the location

We need and amphibious ice fishing boat for that stuff. What with global warming, such a contraption if well made, and not too expensive, would work....... :thinking:       :P           BTW great work Sk8man  :yes:

I just went past the north end an hour ago, someone is out. Definitely saw a blue ice shelter.

Yes I just talked with him and he said there is 6-7 inches of ice out to about 400-500 yds out and past that about 3-4 inches (12-15 ft water). I told him I have finally met someone as hardcore and crazy as me :lol: . It took him about an hour to drag his stuff back in which made me feel better about putting my clam back down cellar and going with just the sled :)  He indicated that the fishing was slow today. He also confirmed that a buddy fished Butler the other day and there was a water main break over there and it raised the ice up about a foot or two under his feet and he was instructed by the authorities to get off there immediately so I wouldn't consider trying there if anyone is thinking about it. There was also an ice boat out there at the north end who launched at the pier. The ice fisherman was shedding clothing on the way in which says something about the journey back in :) in the second photo you have to look closely in the center of the tree limbs to see him way out.

Hope to get some ice on this lake. I will be back in town for school shortly and need something to do wednesday mornings. I went ice fishing on my buddy's pond for the first time a few days ago and really enjoyed it!

Jeff- the extreme north end is fishable out quite aways but it is a long walk out there to get into good water (and to avoid "dinkland").  There have been a couple guys fishing the north east side  about as far out as they could go.  Things can change rapidly though with wind direction and velocity when there is open water out there (and there is plenty of it) because it can erode the ice from underneath and you can have safe ice all the way out and then an inch or less all of a sudden.  Make sure you go with someone.
