Well In was just looking at the NOAA 7 day forecast and it getting down to the low 30s and low 20s every night with highs only in the 40s with a chance of snow on Thursday and Friday. By the look of this there will be small amounts of shoreline ice on calm nights and melting during the days. It is not that far away I say by the look of this hopefully a inch or 2 by the 2nd week of gun hunting. Last year I was fishing 2nd weekend on Winnebago with 3 in of ice in the bay's.

Strong El-nino winter coming. Here's my prediction: Ice on lakes in late fall, before X-mas. Ice gets sketchy in all areas except the northwoods by late January...Ice out in southern wisconsin in early March...Lets see what Ma nature has in store,enjoy the fall!!!

Not sure if the lake is gonna freeze over this year. We need less wind.

Now all you ice fisherman must ask yourselves a question concerning this thread..and that is...how far down the icehole should we go? As far as first ice...let's wait for fall to do its thing as some of the best fishing is now. How do I know this? Because grandmother told me Evil Grin

Used to love blowing snow and looking at the teenagers thru the window.. All comfy and warm.. Loved so much that one day i walked into the house with a diagonal cutters and cut off the tv cord!

Friend of mine loved it so much that one year all three boys got a snow shovel for christmas with their name on n the handle..

Then one year I turned my dishwasher into a snowblower.. Sounds tough but i just gave her a shovel..

Along came retirement.. I strapped the snowblower on the hood of the car and headed south.. When someone fianally asked me "what the heck is that thing on your hood!" I drove another 100 miles and settled down!

That about tapse out.. Maybe with a little ice fishing in the freezer i can catch a few cubes for a brandy and coke and see what i can come up with..

Ice is safe. If not, wait 2 weeks and read this again.

My grandmother would never have to split wood in the winter. Shame! She was too busy shoveling out the driveway. Big Smile
