Went out at 5 pm. Tried numerous shoreline spots for crappies. Not a bite. Drifted a while. Nothing doing. It's still April and the fish know it. With upcoming cool fronts, it may a week or two before fish move in.

At Boxhorn, there is a 6' wide path to get through. No pier in yet. And a strong wind may close the narrow opening. Hunter's Nest channel clear. Couldn't see clear to end at Durham Launch.

Does anybody know if you can get on from the Hunters Nest launch? Any bogs blocking channel to main lake?

Boxhorn launch is impassable.. a giant bog has closed it up totally..full width of launch area... going to need some heavy artillery to move it... it's at least 50-60' wide and probably 30-40' thick/deep.. it's a biggie Sad

The launch on Durham is also has 2 blockages 1 small bog 1/2 way out and what looks to be a bigger one at the lake opening.. but one may be able to get out there...

The gun club off Durham looked to be blocked as well out near the end of the channel..

That's crazy livetofishwisconsin. Cool name by the way! How deep was the water where you fell in? I was out Fri night sat and sun. Haven't been out since sun. I'm not gonna chance trying to get out on the ice anywhere. Just not worth the risk. Mentally I'm just not done fishing for this season and I'm very disappointed we didn't have ice very long. Seems like the season started to late and ended to early. I look forward all year for October to come to start bow hunting and as that comes to an end I shift gears to ice fishing. My favorite time of the year!!! That time seems to go faster and faster every year. Crying Thanks for the advice guys!!

Buddy and I both fell in fishing out of Durham launch sunday. All the ice is sheit. Never made it back within 1/4ile of the launch. Had to ditch to the shoreline. With this cold I still definitely would not trust the ice. Fishing was fantastic btw.

Yes, just to reiterate what Theimer said, BE CAREFUL. Good friend of mine went through this past Sunday. Not exactly sure where but he was out quite a ways.

My personal advice: STAY OFF, & STAY HOME. Call it a season down here.

I know most of this lake is 3 ft but has a soft bottom. Some areas has another 3 ft of muck and mud. If you want to go fishing I would go to a lake that has a hard bottom and no deeper then 3 ft. Until You can see if there's safe ice. I would be prepared to fall in the lake. Just in case it does happen.

If you really want to go out to big m. I would drill a hole over the launch pad to see how the ice is then drill your way down the channel. But I think ice is going to be very iffy. Use extreme caution.

An FYI to everyone. There's an extremely high concentration of starry stonewart in the channel to basses bay. We've pulled it up all 6 of our holes today. Be sure your sanitizing your equipment no matter what lake on the Muskego chain your fishing. My auger, scoop, tip up line and everything will be washed in Dawn and rinsed thoroughly.
