Always good and fun to walk through all the exhibitors and see / find out what’s new (tackle, boats and boat equipment, travel destinations, organizations, charters, pretty much anything fishing or related and a few that aren’t) and attend a few of the seminars on a variety of fishing. Good temporary cure for cabin fever that hits about now.
I will be making a few videos as I rig my equipment to show how I run my rods and boards so stay too Ed o er the next couple weeks I will post them here.
Was reading last year’s early posts and saw that some were able to get out early on nice days before the wooden docks were put in at the State Parks. Was wondering where good places to launch might be this time of year. I cannot remember how much concrete there is at Catawba and Mazurik’s. I need to be able to tie up to park the truck and need a little extra time to warm up the I/O. I’m mobile so anywhere from Huron to PC would work for me. Thanks in advance. Am pumped up to get back out there.
Not sure if there is a specific place to post this other than this part of the forum. Please let me know if it should be elsewhere.
We have a 3 bedroom place about a 1/2 mile from Mazurik Boat launch. If you are interested I can send you a link with the info. It is geared more toward families with kids who go to Lakeside but there is plenty of parking for boats and an outdoor electric hookup to charge boat batteries.

Lake water temperature off Toledo is 37 degrees (Wednesday, January 10). That means it has to drop five degrees to get to freezing temp. 39 off Cleveland.
Even with this forecast real cold spell coming, starting this Saturday and going through all of next week (daytime highs in the low 20’s / upper teens, nights in the single digits), I don’t think it’s going to be enough to get any significant ice on the main Lake by the 20-21 weekend. However, just looked at the Port Clinton Janauary forecast and the real cold is forecast to continue, with only a few days into the upper 20’s. If that holds, we may get good enough ice (barring lots of wind) by the January 27-28 weekend. If the cold continues into February, by the first weekend in February we could have good ice fishing.
Rare for water temp to be so high a third of the way through January. Wondering if that might be too warm to cool down to freezing and allow for good ice formation by the January 27/28 weekend.
