Have a tentative trip planned to the Oconto area of Green Bay on 4/2... is there hope the ice will be clear enough by then or should i be looking at a plan B? Thanks!

The primary reason I do not tell people its okay to start fishing the Bay until ALL the ice is gone has, once again happened.  13 boats are reportedly stranded outside Oconto harbor.  I hope they find a way off before something more tragic happens.

Getting out to the mouth with a boat may be a possibility then?

My guess would be around April 10th.  There still 15-20" on the Bay.  The mouth is starting to open up, but the river has a lot of ice too.

Depending on weather(warmth) it may peak at end of April.

Good luck finding eyes. Maybe with a boat off the breakwater?
