This will definitely be a winter to remember or for some to forget. The ice conditions are not favorable at this time and with the new 5 inch snowfall will be not the best for ice fishing until we get a good dose of cold weather. Several lakes in the area still have open water and even with some of the smaller lakes where foot travel is the only option, extreme care must be taken when venturing out. Cross Country skiing and snow showing would be a great option for this coming week if coming to the Grand Rapids area for the holidays. The recent snow fall has created a winter wonderland and a beautiful landscape to enjoy.
