Drove down John Nolen today and the lake looked to be 80% covered. There were some areas where the ice was buckled up and it looked to be an inch thick from the pieces I saw on top. It was wide open two days ago.

Don:

On my way out to the beltline after ice fishing Friday afternoon, I saw a boat fishing out of Olin. I would think its open for sure, and you might not be alone tomorrow. Sure wish I had the cajones to go in this weather. Rain would suck, with the wind not helping either. Hope you get out and land the big one!

Is the lake locked up? Is there still a pier at olin? Might pass on deer hunting and get another musky trip in.

RK, I checked it out today. The ramp is still open, no problem launching a boat, except it is icy on the ramp. Bring salt and/or sand and you will be fine. Water temps were about 43 on Sunday night.

Has anyone been at Olin landing? Curious if I can still get the boat in there. Checked Warner (iced in) and Tenney (no ice today but an ice ridge at the water line that would prevent a larger boat from launching, a smaller, light one that you could man handle might be OK. Wind was pounding into there this afternoon.

On Monona this morning. Olbrich has all but one pier pulled out and the lot (as it is every year) is being used to store pier sections from other locations. Water temp now at 46.5°F and very dirty. Marked huge schools of larger fish in the shallows, dropped the camera down just to verify they were carp. Bottom so stirred up you couldn't see much of anything, I'm comfortable saying they're carp! Clarity past Wyldhaven poor all the way to 40 FOW (deep as I went today). Tomorrow dropping the boat off at Inland to try and get the motor to idle properly. Last time they worked on it (different problem that time) they got me in and out very quickly, hoping tomorrow follows suit. At least Pheasant season is open, otherwise without a boat I'd have to stay home and clean the garage! Smile

The city piers used to be scheduled to be pulled the first part of December. Years ago I spoke with the (now retired for some years now) supervisor and he agreed to leave one pier in at each of the main launches until the temps got down low enough to actually start to freeze things up. But people have come and gone since then so things change...

On Monona this morning, water temp down to 54°F (deepest I checked was 40'). Water clarity bad, in areas where the carp were moving it was even worse. Not a whole lot of boats out. Only fish seen with camera today were (mostly) carp but saw three or four smallies on some structure.

Late report from 10/19...Walleye bite has slowed on Waubesa so decided to try Monona. Fishing was tough but the few we did get were of quality. Only thing the fish would touch were jigs/plastics.

Fished all day Saturday. One 40" tiger and 36" pike at moonset. Lost another ski and got 2 more pike (biggest was a 40" sow) at dusk.

Though water temp still a little warm, the sucker bite was definitely on. Had several fish take look at Bondi baits 25 FOW. Threw dawgs and manta hang-tens...nada on those.
