Be care full out there! The wind will blow the warm water from the St Mary's discharge around, melting ice from beneath. I have seen good ice reduced to unsafe within a day! Stay safe and on top!
I just checked on bay. Part of the bay was still open and there was about a half inch of ice by shore. People were icefishing below dam on lake Wingra but i did not check the ice thickness there. My video shows what it looked like.
Yikes, the Monona Bay zoo is starting! Be care full out there, not safe yet, the wind needs to die down a bit for safe ice. Always a great first ice spot, I don't fish it much anymore these days. Better places to fish on the Madison chain, get out away from the crowds and explore! Safe ice will be here soon, I'm pumped up!
