February 26th; I was on vacation last week. Today I started to check the ice and lake ice conditions. First was Lehr WMA. At 50 ft in front of the landing I had 30.5 inches of very good ice. The shoreline looked very good. The landing had 2 inches of ice with 2 inches of water under out to 12 feet from ramp, with 30 inch ice under that. Green Lake had 25 inch ice of very good quality except for 2 inches of bad ice at the bottom. The boat launch in the park was very high quality. The shore line ice looked very good. Tomorrow I will check some more area lakes and report on them. We are getting some nice fish but not great fishing yet. Some days it is great fishing. Good fishing and good luck.

The ice is honeycombed. Walking out isn't an issue yet. Some slush and snow on the ice north of Lehr. Colder temps coming should firm things back up, best bet is to walk out or use an ATV. I would not drive a truck out anymore this year. Check the ice at each place you fish prior to venturing to far out. Ice is plenty thick but like I said, it is honeycombed...

February 10th;  Found a walleye and perch bite on another lake. The fishing was just ok so far. One lake is delivering some very nice perch 14 to 15 inches. Some days were sucking bad with one to three fish. Some days it's much better.The walleyes are biting in the shallower water early and late. Found some good northern fishing. The recent warm weather has settled down the snow on the lakes. Lots of very low snow spots with some drifts that can be driven through most of them with some speed. Drifts from shacks are to big to drive through. Use yellow or amber shooter glasses to see drifts much better on the ice. Wall Mart for 7 bucks. You can drive almost anywhere with 4x4 truck and no where with a two wheel drive. A snowmobile or a 4 wheeler will get you into some remote lakes, two are worth it. Accesses on lakes where fish are biting is very good. I have been looking for snow blower system for clearing out lake accesses. The tractor that I'm looking for is a Versatile. Ford bought the company in about 1992. A ford versatile is the age of tractor I'm looking for (1992 -2005). Buying from a unknown source is asking for problems. $25K or less. Please e-mail me at don@schneringrentals.com . I give out info and maps for $100. for non customers. My guide outfitter license with insurance is $1500./ year. I do not guide anyone in the field or lake. I guide my customers for free on paper. If your not staying with me, you pay like I pay. If drilling inside a hard shack, you will need an extension. A local guy supplies most of the big named sporing stores. He will sell to us direct. We have openings call me at Don 608-697-6910 or Kurt at 712-330-3711 Good fishing and good luck.

January 31th; We had some very nice walleyes, one 30.5 incher and some mid twenties. Found a walleye bite on another lake. We had some sucking bad days with three days in a row so far of great perch fishing. The size is like the last picture, half over 14 to 15 inches. Found some good northern fishing. The recent warm weather has settled down the snow on the lakes. Lots of very low snow spots with some drifts that can be driven through most of them with some speed. Drifts from shacks are to big to drive through. Use yellow or amber shooter glasses to see drifts much better on the ice. Wall Mart for 7 bucks.  You can drive almost anywhere with 4x4 truck and no where with a two wheel drive. A snowmobile will get you into some remote lakes, one is worth it. Accesses on lakes where fish are biting is very good. I have been looking for snow blower system for clearing out lake accesses. A skid steer with 6 foot snow blower or a tractor with blower and bucket. Bob cat 7753 or better would work. A good deal on a unit that you know is without problems would be nice. Buying from a unknown source is asking for problems. $20K or less. Please e-mail me at  don@schneringrentals.com  Dave ee, I give out info like you want for $100.

I agree! Don did a great job and effort in trying to put our group on fish

Was always there to answer our questions and to pull us out of the

snow drifts. Would recommend him to anybody. He works long hours to

make sure his guests have a great trip

He's a guide.  He puts in a lot of hours to find fish and goes through a lot of gas plowing accesses for his customers. He posts to let you know he has good information.  You can either pay him for more specific information, or you go do the legwork yourself.

Kind of like a stockbroker wouldn't make any money if they gave out stock tips for free.  Nice, but not lucrative.

Lakes that small would turn into Grumpy Old Men villages if he gives out the names on a public forum.
