Got a cabin rented this coming weekend at Red shirt lake, has anybody been out there recently? How thick was the ice? How was the pike fishing?

Redshirt is a pretty slow lake, but there are some decent pike if you are patient and consistent. I would print off a bathymetric map on the ADF&G website and look for shallow areas (10' or less) and concentrate your efforts there. Finding weeds or structure will be all the better too. A popular fishing spot is just off where Lynx Creek dumps in. Can't say it's ever been hot fishing there, and the fish are generally pretty small, but it could be a start.

is the creek between flathorn and redshirt frozen solid during the winter or do fish migrate between the two lakes?
