Anyone know how iced lake Shelbyville is? Heading down there tomorrow regardless. If its pretty well iced though, I won't bring the dog
Thanks

I didn't see any ice on the main body but the waterfowl area east of shelbyville has about 1" of ice on it.

Thanks dangduck. Main lake was what I planned on hunting. Now I'll just have to look around for some birds

You may have some luck, went from 850 last week to 1550 this week so looks like new birds showed up

I heard it is locked up from coal shaft north. People launching at Findley for short boat rides.

Any one think with the warmer temps today it might have thawed it out?

North end was froze from Wilborn on up. The West Okaw River was 2" + in places. Busted ice Thursday and Friday, seen plenty of new birds :thumbsup:
