That wasn't the report that I was hoping for on your end. Is it possible to ice fish Lake Minocqua without being able to drive out on it? I have a 14 yr. old that is pretty excited about coming up to ice fish. Or are there other lakes that might be a little more accessible by foot? Let me know what you think and then I will have to make a decision on my end. I will wait to hear from you.
Your worst fear came true... Too much snow and more forecasted through the weekend with 4-6" before Friday a.m. and a supposed big storm for Friday and Sat. That storm will take the air out of a potential great sledding weekend for the area businesses. We have heard through the day anywhere from 14" (I measured at my store) to 24" that fell through the night...
Slush will be a main theme until we get this knocked down with some warm temps.
Saw on this a.m.'s weather that they are predicting 12-18" of heavy wet snow and... that might make truck impossible for a very long time... In fact for others getting permanent shacks off before might be prudent...
Guessing after the snow on Tues./Wed. lake travel will get interesting for a day or two... Let ya know more after we get what they aren't sure to predict in terms of snowfall... If we get 6" or more it'll be a slush fest, if we get a foot or more, it will be ugly.
the bite seemed to start around noon to 3. early and later it seemed slow. green jig with waxie. smaller and lighter the jig the better it seemed, many would hit it on the drop.
good luck =- beckman
