What species are you looking for? Do you own a boat? There are some out-of-the way small lakes in northern Oakland County that offer some decent panfishing.

But if I was you I sure wouldn't think about ice fishing this year!

Check out Michigan-Sportsman.com The forums there are a great source for fishing and hunting in Michigan. My screename there is Zofchak. They also have a ice fishing section devoted entirely to Lake St. Clair so you can get updated ice conditions almost daily.
I fished Metro Beach this past weekend and the ice conditions were decent 4-5" in the marina. By this upcoming weekend there should be 5-10 inches on most area lakes. Good luck.

The great equalizer is winter. The equipment is cheap and anyone can try it. -- Ice fishing may be good by early next week or even this weekend. You do need a license to fish even in he winter
Please be very careful and follow the safety rules.

I went out on Anchor Bay near Anchorville and went out 1/4 mile today no problem, but i would not go much further for another few days though. There are shantys poping up past fair haven in a shallow area by the DNR launch. Also as far as fishing i cant believe it when i see a group of people fishing in SouthWest on the rouge by the sewage plant and zug island. Come on why the hell would you fish there?!?!?!?

Be careful my friend and go prepared. The thickness of the ice can change quickly. Take a spud and put a couple of eve trough spikes in our pocket. You'll need them to pull yourself out on onto the nice slippery ice if you fall through. Carry a rope too. If you are walking in a group stay about six feet apart so you don't all fall through! Take a compass because if the fog rolls in while you're out on the ice, you'll end up walking in circles for hours. And don't be stupid enough to go out onto the ice with an off shore wind! Have fun!

Great photos!

It's supposed to be windy and in the 20s the next few days, and then high temperatures will average around 10 degrees Saturday through Tuesday. By the beginning of next week things would have to be pretty solid near the shores.

Just remember if you hear a warning voice over a loudspeaker saying "THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE", you're in Joe Louis Arena.........
