Thanks much! There was still 12" on Monona last night, just getting anxious to get back out! Should have the boat ready to go in a couple of days. I'll be ready when the lake is! :) Rick
Anyone been by the lake? Curious as to how much open water there is. Last year I was out searching with the boat on March 6th, just some floating ice then on the SE end of the lake (remember there was an Eagle sitting on the sheet of ice). Thanks, Rick
Missing: Vexilar FL- 8 SE. Last seen packing up at quams landing on the evening of 2/22 during sleet storm. Vex was placed in a red Berkley bucket. Please pm with any information.
Any help will be greatly rewarded
Thank you, tight lines
In case you're wondering what the ice looks like after all of the rain. I drove the western shore along the lake roads and part of the South shore near the quam landing after work yesterday. Every Creek was dumping a ton of water onto the ice. Obviously avoid those areas but other than that the ice was in real good shape. I could still see a few spots of snow out on the lake, mostly drifts I'm sure, and all the water that was on the lake yesterday has since froze. So avoid the river and Creek outlets and the ice is still good.
Hope this helps for anyone wondering!

Things are turning into the wild west at Amundsen Landing.

Side by sides are not allowed on Dane county lakes, but you see one in the picture with two guys over 250 pounds each getting ready to head out.
Trailers used for shacks that weigh 1,300 pounds, pulled by a 4 x 4 that weighs 450 pounds with a big guy on it, causing shock wave.
Where is the DNR? They used to be around.

Fished on Kegonsa for the first time on Saturday. Caught a number of 6-8" walleyes, a few in the 12" range and four 17" walleye. Also picked up a 20" pike. Overall, a pretty fun day on the ice.
