The ice all broke up. It is just chunks at Olin. The ramp is salted and the ice build up on the bottom is for the most part cleaned. Be safe. Have at it.

Looks like the open water season is drawing to a close. To say walleye fishing was a disappointment this fall would be an understatement. Very few legal fish. The biggest I caught might have been 22-23. There are a lot of short fish but when it's all you catch for three weeks it gets a little boring. I've been fishing but not posting.
I just think back to the glory days from the fall of 2008 up to the time when Skinny J broadcast to the world where he was fishing. Haven't saw him for two years now. I wonder why? He stopped coming around when the big fish went away. So have the crowds. I wonder why? They stopped coming when the big fish went away. Two years ago a guy was drifting by the wall and he asked me "We caught all kinds of nice walleye last year, none this year". Haven't saw that boat since. I wonder why?
Good luck on the ice. Will be doing more of that this year and start to actually try to figure out how to catch bigger gills.Partner and I have conquered Wingra. Rat.
You need to be careful around the bridges. I was threatened by 2 bums a few weeks ago. The were aggressive and when I lifted my coat aside and showed my CC they quickly left. The town is really becoming a big city in all aspects.
Gave it one last shot Saturday night from shore. Saw a couple eyes and my second ever Monona crayfish hanging out in the terrace rocks. Nothing biting, water was insanely clear (thanks zebras?). Took a walk on the wild side and fished John Nolan with no success, but I did find some interesting cave art. Anyone care to speculate?
