I happened across an avid ice-fisherman on Tuesday 1/24/17 and he told me that Lakes Cadillac and neighboring Mitchell had 16 inches of ice, supporting vehicle traffic, as recent as late last week.
I am sharing a fishing report link, below, from Pilgrim Village Resort located on Lake Mitchel for your review and consideration. If we get some cold weather, it could stiffen the ice coverage there & allow for some extended sailing without having to travel “too” far.
Are there other venues that have coverage that would support us? Contact your various sources and please post your findings.
