: Clear Lake: Ice is 3-4 inches on the little lake out from the McIntosh Ramp and around two inches on the north shore of the main lake. Warmer weather, this past weekend, may have weakened the ice. Use caution. The DNR recommends a minimum of four inches of ice for fishing and a minimum of five inches of ice for ATVs or snowmobiles. Crappie - Fair: A handful of crappies have also been caught in deeper water on Maki plastics. Yellow Bass - Fair: Moderate numbers of yellows have been caught using Maki plastics.
