Just wondering if anyone knows how thick ice is at Shabbona and what the water is like. My lake got real dirty with run off and had to put a 2x6 out to get to safe ice. Safe ice is still around 15" but the fishing stinks with the dirty water.

1fishingFool,
Grubjigger is my user name on IS and yes the ice is good on Shabbona. Water clarity is murky but the crappies I caught came out of 10-30 FOW. At these depths, fish are pretty much responding to vibrations, at least I think so. Anyhow, from what I saw on the Vex, fish responded to jigging. Action was very hot in the AM and PM but not so good in the afternoon.

Shabbona Hours

What time does the lake close during the week? I would like to get a trip in this week during the evening. Any help would be appreciated!
