Fished out from Olbrich beach this morning.  Ran tip-ups in 10-12 feet of water.  2 flags in 4 hours.  CPR'd a 27" pike.  Missed the other one.  Tried jigging for an hour or so.  Marked a few fish in 5 ft but they wouldn't touch anything.  Did not see anything on the vex in deeper water.  Gave up on jigging and put in a third tip up.  5" of very good ice.

Hey there, does anyone know if there is safe enough ice in front of the monona terrace yet? I’m hoping to get out there before the gale force winds this weekend if possible. PM me if you like - I’ll post a report if I can make out there before the weekend. 

thanks in advance!

Only unsafe spot(s) off olbrich park are directly off the breakwater and towards the preacher bar. Otherwise the whole area had about 5 inches everywhere I checked on Sunday. Easy access to the lake off of the beach.

Fished from 4-6:30 off of Olbrich Park. Caught 1 northern that measured 25”. Another larger northern snapped me off at the hole around 5:45. Drilled holes out to 20’ deep, and didn’t mark any fish.

Drove by Olbrich yesterday on way to work. There were 2 guys fishing, and 1 ice skating about 150-200 yards out from the park. 

I have no idea how much ice, or where they got on. But if nothing else, it means we will be fishing monona soon. Finally!


Stay safe.

Sorry if confusing but not looking to fish from shore but actually ice fishing. Small auger and a couple of poles

I am not sure where you would be able to fish from shore. The lake is starting to lock up again. Especially with the colder temperatures tonight.
