Drove by some lakes in SE Wisconsin this morning. There was still some snow floating in the water on 2 of them. One had some ice, some slush and an area of open water that was being enjoyed by the geese.

I live on Lake Du Bay and with this snow things are looking rough. A lot of brown slush patches can be seen and the feeder creeks and rivers still have some flowing open water in them. I don't know how much ice there is but a rock the size of a baseball went right through in front of my house on Sunday. I do have current in front of my place though so that is a big factor. Ice fisheree's are starting next weekend I don't know how that is going work on a lot of local lakes in Central WI.

Yea, back in 2003, No Ice between Xmas and New Year,...

My fishing Buddy and I have been fishing for 43-Years. We planned our Annual Ice Fishing Trips for the week before Xmas, or the week between Xmas and New Year's Eve. Our trips would be Upper Red and Winne in MN.

2003 we took a boat out on the water; still got the video.

After that year, we changed the annual fishing trip to the end of Jan.

Small lake in SE WI was almost skimmed entirely on Saturday and then completely on Sunday but back to open water Monday. This will have to do for now... Speechless

I went back through my log and it turns out December 18th was the first time I went ice fishing in 2009 on 2.5" of ice in Marathon. So maybe we're not too far behind afterall.

I'll be out this Sunday good luck and stay safe to everyone else.

If lakes kept their ice, which some small ones did in Vilas, I'd say you'll be in good shape on Saturday and Sunday. Gotta gone cold and should firm up well. Be safe.
