Default Spring Lake North

Thinking about heading down on MLK Day (off work) if the lake is open. Can anyone let me know? I've not been down there in a couple of years. Great Ecosystem and I'd love to catch (and release) musky in January.

It this post a joke ....? There is probably 10-12" of solid ice on Spring Lake right now.
It is going to be a very long time before there are any boats on Spring.

Tip ups, quick strike rigs and maybe they eat better when caught in winter.
Like to do the catfish holes on south side. Does anyone icefish it?

Blu,
I know there are a handful of locals that know right where all the springs are located do a little ice fishing on it. With the springs scattered all throughout that lake, I choice to stay off it's ice and risk it.
