I am heading up to visit my uncle for Memorial Day Weekend.
Coukd anyone tell me if the Crappie are spawning?
You'll have to end to end 2 planks at least to get on by Indian Villiage & there's open water by Misery Bay lauch. The dog went through there 2 days ago about 15-18 ft. offshore...sad about the fish die off this year on LVD...hate to say it...but it sounds like because of deep frost & snow/mud...some resorts aren't opening til'' the 18th....we need rain to eat this ice! I'm thinkin' if I'm pining for my boat..might have to go to The Bay of GB
In answer to the ice depth it varies lake to lake. With 1630 lakes in Vilas I can't speak for them all. The Eagle River chain may have some shorelines that you can get out on come Saturday, Watersmeets is open. The Twins have 27 inches of ice14 of that is rotten the rest is good. You need to check your lake on your terms. Some of these lakes can still take ice fishing and you can use tip-ups but that risk will be yours. Right now your on your own so to speak.
