Default Rattlesnake/sauders res condition?

Wondering if anyone has been out that way in the past couple days and can give an update as to the conditions on the ice, how much ice is there and more importantly how much water is on top of the ice given our recent warm spell! I live over 3 hrs away so checking for myself not super feasible! But also don't want to waste 6 hours of my Saturday going there and back with out putting a line in! Thanks for any info!!!!

Was out there today and it's flooded out good, truck said +16 ! +10 overnight, warm tomorrow and all weekend. We ended up just leaving, most of the big drifts are slush piles underneath and I nearly got stuck in the 4X4 so Be aware and avoid them if u drive. Not sure how the warm nights & weekend will affect the good ice I'm sure it will be safe just bring waders lol it wet

I was there this Monday. there wasn't any flood on the ice and 19" thick, although some of the 19" was pretty soft. temps are cooling down again so still have a few more weeks left i'd say. the fishing was terrible not a bite in 4 hrs. has to pick up one of these days.
