Hi college student new to fishing the area here in the early spring. Is there any chance of getting some crappie from shore here yet? Or does the water need to warm up a little bit yet? Any tips on some possible pan fish locations this weekend would be appreciated

Yikes! That ice is going quick! Ice on Lake Farm on Waubesa is better than Monona bay, but going quick, it's thundering here, rain and 50 degrees, done ice fishing here, Those big fat gills on Cherokee were great this year, a good but short season!

Fished the bay today, Boards & planks getting out there. 15-20 ft worth of planks to get to safe walkable ice. Very windy today. Many guys coming on and off the bay today. Lots of guys catchin gills there biting! Cought handful of crappies, 10-20 keepable gills and 1 small sized perch. Ice isnt going to be sticking around much longer... Might be good for tomorrow? good luck and be safe if you try to venture out!

Brought home 13. Now hafta clean um. Walk out from the beach at 3 was fine but broken up at 6 bc a 300 lb guy fell and broke it up. Got 1 wet boot leaving. Thinking the triangle shore ice may survive 1 more day?. Theyre biting!

By the time i left it had been broken up so someone must have got some wet feet. Not sure if it would be possible to get out there tomaro. Def my last day on the ice today. Left with a lot of nice gills, not to many small ones today.

Fished noon til 4 in monona bay. Got a limit of the typical size fish. Also threw back twice as many as I kept. Shoreline won't last past today. It was sinking every time someone got on or off the ice. After 10 feet it still was good.

Fished Friday 10 to 330.I got a limit of gills with small purple moon glitter jig with red spikes. I would get 1 or 2 fish per hole (keepers) then had to move on .most fish where 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 inches. I think to be successful the key is to keep moving and stay away from the crowd. Good luck and stay on top.

Got out here today along with 30-40 other anglers. Walked on just behind the boat house (Beach). Most of the shorelines didn't look safe but where I got on was plenty solid. Ice depth once on ranged 7-9 inches I would guess. Caught plenty of gills and kept 12......F.P. Cool

I did a drive by the bay yesterday. About 15 or 20 people out there. Lots of open water near the railroad bridges and in the corner near park street, probably near inlets where storm runoff occurred. Shoreline near the beach looked a bit wet, but that's where most of the traffic was. Saw some tracks on the north triangle but noone was out there. Lots of open water/skim ice in the south triangle. Be careful if you do venture out!

There is ice. I do know the shorelines were horrible on sunday. Obviously once you get out there the ice is safe but its very unsafe along the shoreline. Maybe the freezing temps the past few days healed it up a little. I would think someone who has been out yesterday or today has a decent answer for you on that one.
