ICE DEPTH
20 inches
February 17th; Measured 20 inches of ice. We are getting some nice perch and walleyes. A large front came in on the 16th. The perch and walleye turned on big time. Almost everyone on the ice did very well. The weather and the fertility of the lakes, both have their influences on your fishing success. Some snow and drifts on the ice. Four wheel drive is a must. We both have openings. Short notice is OK. My friend Kurt has openings also 712-330-3711 cell. Accesses are good. Low snow on the ground. Renting heated ice shanty's to my house rental customers only. No sleepers'. Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 c

Hi guys. I'm taking my dad out to the lehr area tomorrow. Has anyone been having any luck out there? If you could point me in the direction of a good lake that would be great.

I'd like to thank Don Schniering for being the true sportsman and gentleman that He is. Even though we were not staying at one of his rental houses and were unable to located good perch fishing. He invited me and a buddy over to his house were he gave me a map and showed us where the Perch were biting. If you stay by Don, He will put you on fish. Thanks Don, It was greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know if diamond is hitting. I was out there a couple weeks ago and it was not great. I appreciate any advice I am heading out that way for a five day trip in two weeks.

ICE DEPTH
17 inches
January 16th; Measured 17 inches of ice today. When I say I measured 17 inches, that means I used a yard stick with an L-bracket on the bottom of it. This gives the most accurate measurement. Not all lakes will have the same thickness of ice. My readings are for the lakes that I send my customers to. You must measure the ice you are going to drive on. Know one can tell you the ice is safe to drive on. No snow on the ice. Getting big perch, and nice walleyes. I have some openings. Accesses are very good. Renting heated ice shanty's to my house rental customers only. No sleepers'. Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 c

I also fished the Lehr area lakes including Goose Lake which is right next to Dry Lake. I took ice measurements on 3 lakes and had 13 1/2 inches on some and 14 1/2 inches on two others. With this minus zero degrees its making thicker ice in a hurry with only about 2 inches of snow on the ground. All different size trucks including deisel truck pulling ice castles were all over the lakes.

Spent Thurs/Fri/Sat fishing lakes around Lehr and Ashley.

When we put the tape measure to the ice, we barely got 12" on bare ice. We found 10-11" where there was a skiff of snow. That was on Saturday, the first day of the freeze, so there may be more now, but I would NOT rely on someone else to measure ice.

Had the scare of our lives on Dry Lake - fished there Friday, and Saturday morning we were headed across the lake again and saw a crack opening up 10' away along side the truck as we drove out, water gushing up. Made a hard left and gunned it, getting away from the crack. Parked 150 yards away and walked back to that area - there was a crack about 6" wide with a crust of ice on top.....one of many we saw on that lake.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fishing was slow, but we were limited by what lakes we were willing to drive on. We caught a few walleye.

January 11th; Measured 16.5 inches of ice today. We are driving ALL trucks (Diesel and gas) on the lakes but it is never safe to drive on the ice! Yes, it is true! Ice fishermen are all crazy. We will risk life and Diesel truck to get out of the house and catch some fish! No snow on the ice. Getting big perch on four lakes and very nice walleye on three lakes. I have some openings. My friend Kurt has openings also 712-330-3711 cell. Accesses are very good. Renting heated ice shanty's to my house rental customers only. No sleepers'. Good fishing and good luck.
