Default Ice conditions Near WAM & Rattlesnake landing

Hi Folks
I'm looking to access Sleepers Island possibly late this Friday afternoon for a stay over. I'll assume there's plenty of ice due to the extreme cold in the last few weeks but thought i'd check with you all to see if anyone's been out there or if there's any sled traffic, ice fisherman etc out in that area.

Thanks

i walked over to Rattlesnake from the landing off Rollins Road last weekend with my son and dog, ice is totally fine. I drilled a hole off the shore by my place and it was over 12".

There is plenty of activity between shore and Rattlesnake/Diamond. I was up on the hill this morning by Ames Farm and could see multiple groups out there. Here are some quick pics from my phone.

We rode across to Sleepers Friday afternoon and stayed over. We sat on the deck Friday afternoon, glass or wine and the warm sun shining on us. Felt great. Mild temps on Friday night helped the wood stove keep the place plenty toasty.

It was great to see all kinds of activity out on the ice.
