Not too vague. Maybe give a description of color, size? That way, whomever lost it might actually be prompted to ask.

Has anybody checked out the boat launches after the snow? Hoping we don't have snow banks across the landings. I'd like to see if I can get some eyes to cooperate this week.

There is a steady bite with pre-spawn walleyes getting caught!  Jig and plastics were hot, salt and pepper as well as fire tiger caught fish.  The fish were in about 30' and fairly concentrated.  Don't be afraid to use a heavier jig!  We found success drifting and jigging as well as pulling jigs upstream.  The nicer fish came dragging the jigs at slow speeds.  More fish were caught jigging and drifting, but you had to sort through a lot of cigar sized sauger.

We had to put in at the 7th street landing behind Gundersen Lutheran and make the trip up.  Some with smaller rigs were able to push the boats out over the ice from the landing at the dam.

Side note... the Trempealeau dam landing was open but near impossible to put in a larger deep-V rig because of a sand bar.  There were quite a few boats that were able to make it.

Only if you want to push it out across 50-75 yards of ice.

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to launch a boat at the dam landing yet?

Both were still locked up as of 2/26/2018 at around 4:30PM.

A couple of guys still ice fishing the long rock-wall at the southern launch and the entire bay was still iced over at the northern launch with no fishermen (main channel was almost entirely open).

This should change drastically in the next few days. I would not doubt one or both will be open by mid next week.

Managed to get out the last few hours of the day.  Very slow until a short window of activity opened up right at sunset for about 20 minutes then it closed and nothing afterward.  Pulled in four fish total, one nice, fat sauger at about 16".  Very slippery and ice was getting a little crappy but it should firm up nice again with a cold day and night on Friday into Saturday AM.
