ICE DEPTH
16 inches

Fished in the fog yesterday on the Rock with Jack from southern Wisconsin.

We fished in 11' to 15' of water we had a good morning was slow in the afternoon.

We picked up some Crappies 1 25" Walleye and some shorts.

We got are fish on Tungsten jigs tipped with spikes and Tip Downs with small Rosie's.

Ice was soft I was out on ATV but some guys were out in full size trucks. We haven't lost ice but like I said it's soft.

Have Fun Be Safe!

Hoseslures,

Thank you for the info.  This will give me something to think about on the way up.  Strategy...  Rito is just north of me but I think I'll head south.  Thanks again!!!

I forgot to mention, rosies on tipdowns caught most of the fish, but the 1 legal walleye was a 17 incher on a gillgetter and a waxworm. LOL

Battalion......I was out Wednesday and Thursday . As for the heaves, I came off Carlson's on Thursday and went southwest to the middle of the lake. From there I could see the one that was mentioned in earlier posts, coming from down by Portifino and heading northeast towards Carlson's. It does peter out about 3/8 to 1/2 mile out. So you can get to the south by going out and heading straight south a ways and then working to the south west, or you can go around the top of it to get to the island. As for to the north, there is a larger heave, running from rito finger across to north of the island a ways. That 1 looked very big. I was fishing straight out from the tube, and could see both of them from there. I stayed far enough away that this is all the details I can give you. Hope it helps.

As for the fishing, Wed was on west side, very slow, 1 keeper walleye,2 smaller 1's, and 1 small crappie. Thursday was on east side, 7 or 8 small walleyes and 5 nice crappies between 2 of us.

Hey.  I'm thinking of heading up this week and spend a couple days at the lake house...projects.  My trip will also include some time on the rock.  Can anyone give me an idea of how bad/location of heaves are on east side in front of Carlsons out to the island.  Thank you for your help.

Yes the current can cause the channel to get thin in spots..I use to fish the area south of the landing and this side of the channel years ago..but it may have changed..warm weather and current not good..be safe..

And why is Mays Point a danger zone?  The channel is to the east with a stump field to the west. Too much current?  Please advise so we all stay safe. Thanks again.

This is just for the Yellow River Basin...not to much to very little water on top as of noon Friday...Thursday it was froze up...Wednesday we were driving through water...Places to be careful at is the east side of Buckhorn park,the bridge area and where the Little Yellow comes in..Just to give you an idea how the current cuts ice..the channel in Mauston is starting to open up..where Thursday it was iced up..
