Just was wondering if after this recent cold snap if it would be safe at all to walk out on south asylum. I know about a week ago shorelines had really opened up. Thought Id check to see what conditions are now, Thanks still trying to get rid of that ice fish itch.
Asylum Bay (Lake Winnebago), Winnebago County
MOON PHASE (31%)
21° - 25° F
Fished out on the bay this afternoon. Couldn't get much going other than small perch. Ice was good everywhere I went with about 8 to 12 inches. Obviously some of the shoreline had some bad spots. Fished 5 to 8 ft of water.
MOON PHASE (9%)
First time Fishing this bay. Got out before sun up with my dad. We fished from the light House to the mud after hopping the crack, which is getting very soft in most spots. It sounded like a creaky floor walking near it. My dad caught a dozen dink perch and I caught 0. Lots of slush although some ice was hard on top. I would consider all the ice I drilled honey combed. It was all chunks. Still at 14" or so in most spots with sturgeon holes wide open.

Out this afternoon in the bay. Fished in 8 to 9 ft of water. All I could muster up were mostly small perch and trout perch...Ice overall was decent considering the weather. Obviously losing its strength but still a fair amount there. Shorelines are open in a few areas. Nice to be icefishing in 60 degree weather but sad to see season coming to an end so soon. Only a few people in bay and a few out on lake with wheelers. Good fishing All!
