      the Bass lake marina Friday night
    18. Jake Joseph 0
      I fished near the marina Friday night and 2/3 of the lake was open and covered in geese, when I went to the bait shop today it was almost all locked up but I’m sure ...more it’s still thin. What an odd ice year. I went by Max on Friday main lake all the way open be interesting to see what Max looks like tomorrow when I’m near there.
