BIG RAPIDS - The DNR reports while there may be ice in some areas of the southern sections of the Lower Peninsula, a warm-up by the weekend will deteriorate the ice once again. Lakes to the north still have good ice fishing opportunities.
In Osceola County, "there's a few people out ice fishing," Brad Cox, of Buck's Country Bait, in LeRoy said. "Ice is good on every lake around. There's about 10 to 12 inches. There's pike and crappies out of Rose Lake, crappies on Hess Lake. People are out and about."
