Went out on wednesday morning for about 45 minutes I caught about 15 to 20 bluegill and kept 6 7-8.5 inchers. My camera footage was the best ive gotten with my camera and as you can see there were tons of fish swimming around this day

Fished the bay for about 2.5 hours .  Tons of 4 to 6 in gills.  4 gills around the 7 to 7.5 inch mark.  A half dozen small crappie.  Kept nothing, fishing for fun.  It's fun using the vex to see how far you can get the gills to chase your jig.  Bigger gills near bottom, used very small jig, purple added tiny red plastic tail. 2 spikes.  Always fun.

I went out on Monona Bay on sunday from about 345 to 530 and fished in first open holes I saw without  ton of weeds to surface. It was dink city in that hole. I got two decent sized crappie and a bunch of little gills. Atleast it was clear enough to use underwater camera. There was about 20 inches of ice there yesterday so these two warm days will do very little to safety of the ice here.

It should be fine on Monona Bay, but as previously stated, there are other sketchy parts of Lake Monona like some open water over by Squaw Bay, I wouldn't get too close to that.  If you get near any of the ice heaves you want to be cautious too, especially when it warms up for a couple days.  If in doubt, don't go out.

I doubt it's warm enough to cause any issue in Monona Bay, but it will be unpleasant with all the snow melting. As always, take caution especially in other lakes or parts of Monona.

Dont have much ice experience, which is why I am posting this, but what effect will these two “warm” days have on the ice? Will it still be safe enough come Saturday? Thanks!

Fish were just swarming yesterday, on a feeding frenzy.  Didn't have as many big fish, but also saw many more crappies than usual.  Black and green were again good, but I think they would pound anything dropped down the hole.  Fished for less than two hours, and took home 8.  Great place to take a kid or someone just starting with ice fishing.
