March 11th; Your right FishinFool12. The lake your referring to goes out about two weeks before the lake in the picture in last post. Remember, you are always responsible for testing your own ice! All ice reports are history of ice conditions, not the now ice condition. It is never safe to drive or walk on ice! We do it because we are crazy and need to fish. Bring ice picks or a screw driver, rope and a board to help you get out if you go in. The snow geese are here big time. Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 c

I was out north of Ashley. Ice is getting very sketchy and I won't be going out on the ice any more this year. Got a few walleye. Although as noted on a previous post the extended forecast is for cooler we have to get through 72 tomorrow, 70 Saturday and 68 Sunday & Monday. Can't imagine there will be any safe ice after that.

March 10th; This is a different lake than yesterday's report. The two pictures show good shore line and access. The normal accesses have been busted up with trucks earlier. I drilled a hole at 100 feet from shore. The ice has some marbling but not to bad. The long range weather forecast is for much colder. March 15th 49/23 16th 35/18 17th 29/17 18th 33/21 19th 38/13 20th 34/16. This will keep us on the ice for one to two more weeks! This lake and yesterday's lake are the two lakes my customers are fishing. Other lakes may be very bad ice or not. Remember, you are always responsible for testing your own ice! All ice reports are history of ice conditions, not the now ice condition. It is never safe to drive or walk on ice! We do it because we are crazy and need to fish.

March 9th; This morning at 10 AM, I measured the ice and observed the ice color. I also drilled a hole and noted the marbling. I'm glad to report the ice looks good, not black. The marbling is barely noticeable. The ice is 11 inches of good ice. The shoreline is intact for the most part. The landing is showing wear, but places like this picture are working good. This lake is 10 feet deep and has a good bite. I think we looking at up to two weeks of ice. Remember, you are always responsible for testing your own ice!

March 8th; The fish bite was good today. However, it looks like all lakes have honeycombed ice as of today. Shore lines are still usable. One lake is good on the shore line but just got honeycombed and it's very deep. With the warm weather coming, we are at the mercy of the wind when it's warm. The boads to get on will come out very soon. I think we are in the last week or so of ice fishing. Remember, you are always responsible for testing your own ice!

March 6th; We had a 50 deg Saturday with 20 MPH wind and Sunday 72 deg with very low wind. I tested the ice 6:00PM Sunday at the lake near Lehr. At the shore to about 10 feet out I had 6 inches of slush water and 6 inches of ice. At 15 feet out I had 12 inches of good ice. At 50 feet out I had 14 inches of good ice. The surface was dry and had one inch of marbling. The landing was usable by wheeler's. The lake we fished late last winter was driven on by a truck today. The lake had a lot of slush on top. This lake could last about two weeks or so. Remember, you are always responsible for testing your own ice! All ice reports are history of ice conditions, not the now ice condition. It is never safe to drive on ice! We do it because we are crazy and need to fish. ATV's are a good idea or walk on. Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 c

March 3rd; Fishing is slow on most of the lakes. When a small warm front came in yesterday evening, the fish responded. One lake had three of our fishermen. They caught about 50 big perch between them and some walleyes. One guy had a 28 inch walleye. The new farm pond is still producing small perch with some 10 to 11 inchers. One of the Northern Lakes some of our guys had 8, 32 inchers. An other lake has 22 inches of great ice. It is producing lots of small perch with some good ones. The northern have been good. The walleye are good in some places. Goose lake, on the north end, a local seasoned fisherman, broke through the ice into about 3 feet of water with his SUV. This area, about 100 feet West of the road at the edge of the lake, had some bull rushes that he was driving through. The sun warmed the ice due to the rushes. He was traveling our normal path to the lake. We can all learn from this. Even just a few rushes at this time of year, is to many. The submerged road is always bad there also until you get out well into the lake. Remember, you are always responsible for testing your own ice!

FEBRUARY 29TH; Measured the ice today near Lehr. Had 17 inches at 100 feet and 15 feet from shore. We had a very warm week end. Fortunately, we had little wind when it was warmest. Today we had 9 deg this morning. The ice is in very good shape on this lake. The landing has some dirt on the ice and some water. Most of the 2 inches of water is now frozen. The shore line is very good. The ice came up like a snow cone, no chunks. The farm pond north of Fredonia that had some cars go through the ice two weeks ago, was actually in two places only. One was on a submerged road (2 feet). The other was in a narrow pass that has a pressure ridge and 3 feet of water. So, no springs after all. No snow anywhere. No water on the ice. A shallow walleye lake North of Lehr had 14 inches of good ice and 4 inches of chunky ice at the bottom. The fishing is slow with some moments of glory. Getting lots of smaller perch with a few big ones. The walleye are doing good. The northern are always good some where. Remember, you are always responsible for testing your own ice! All ice reports are history of ice conditions, not the now ice reports. It is never safe to drive on ice! We do it because we are crazy and need to fish. ATV's are a good idea.

If you have an ice report on Dry or Green, I would really appreciate it. Coming a long way.... 11 hours and brining ATV's.

I wanna give a big thanks to Mr. Don Schneering for our great stay out in Lehr we had a three day trip from Thursday through Saturday and our first day was pretty good fishing our group ended up with 30 fish mostly perch and a few walleyes biggest perch being 13 3/4" the next two days were fairly slow most likely due to the huge high pressure system but Don was very accommodating and put us on fish can't wait to come back and I can't say enough about his operation Thx from all of us Don keep up the good work out there Cool
