Fished the rock bar on the northeast corner on Tue evening and only caught rock bass. Do walleyes even frequent this area anymore? Seems like everytime I fish it there are only panfish on it. Anyways tried the weedline by the deep hole and honeymoon point. No luck. Maybe all the fish were watching fireworks like everyone else, lake was empty after dark.

Need SUSTAINED at least above 50 during the day and above freezing at night. Thunderstorm/warm rain would really help. None of that in the 1 week forecast(fairly accurate), not much of that in the forecast 3 weeks beyound that(anything can happen). Northern WI lakes are not going to lose much if any ice this week. Maybe northern shore lines will pull out some, if we get sun. If the current extended forecast stays true, could very well have walkable ice on many lakes come May 5th. My GUESS, some small lakes will be fishable by boat if they have landings on the north shore. Most big lakes will be unfishable with iced in landings and no safe ice. But like I said, forecasts, internet, T.V., whatever, are only reliable about a week out, if that. Beyond that, anything can happen.

Less than a month away to the opener. The weather looks like there will be many cold nights still ahead. Any thoughts on ice out for the opener?

Just wondering how the snow/slush conditions are after all the recent snow. Anyone able to drive out yet? Heading out this weekend, will report my findings (hopefully success stories!).

Well, finally home from a long weekend of fishing. We did very well compared to last weekend. Caught a good amount of fish along weed edges, mostly small ones in shallow. Mixed bag of some very decent fish in two days of fishing. We will be back for sure. Can't wait for the fish fry!

6” solid inches in south side of big arb.

careful heading out. Can only go out so far because rest of lake just locked up.

caught bunch of perch and couple bluegill and 1 small walleye.

used tips downs with Rosie’s otherwise jigging with waxies did the trick as well.

good luck all and right lines.

Fished Big Arb 3 times in the last week and the panfish finially turned on . Caught the best quality crappies i have ever caught there . Also had some nice 8" sunfish .Caught lots of fish and keep enough for a couple meals . Caught them on rockers ,plastics and little Cecils . Any color just had to keep switching till you found right color for the day. Hot pink rockers were the best for my group . The landing is getting pretty beat up . I will be walking out from now on .

Spent all day on big arb. Disappointed.  Lots of action but all perch between 3 and 5 inches, 10 feet of water and about 50 anglers all catching same thing with few exceptions. Ice good got slushy at end of day we took quad out but most drove on.
