Thanks for the report!
Boom Lake / Wisconsin River (Rhinelander), Oneida County
Conditions are pretty decent out there. I saw a little slush spot back in Bass Lake. Otherwise, there are a few drifts but not bad. We drove all over the lake in 4WD. The roads are in good shape.
Fishing was slow on Sunday. We were really just driving around and checking our usual spots for fish. We marked suspended crappies in the main basin and in Bass lake, caught a few. Caught some perch and gills around the bog and some gills in Bostrom bay. Ice about 22" except by the bog which was a little less.

We fished Thunder on Sunday. The crappies bit from 3:30 to 4:00. Short window. But we caught around 20 using jigs and plastic. Color didn't seem to matter. If you marked them they would bite. Kept 6 for dinner. The ice is about 8". Didn't measure it.

My 2 cents, I live straight across the water from the paper mill. There's a solid 6 inches on our bay. Main lake and up past harbor is a different story. I'd guess that warm/windy snap had the ice uneven. I heard sleds toward Estabrook Island this a.m. I'm sure there will be enough ice to go anywhere by mid-week.
