ICE DEPTH
4 inches

Tried off the end of Fisherman's Rd for a couple hrs today. Didn't give it a real strong effort but did catch about a dozen gills and 1 nice perch. Gills seem to be a little on the small side. Several others out there, I'd guess about 15 or so. I did measure the ice with a tape. It was right at 4 inches today. Not sure if the whole bay has good ice or not though as I didn't travel far and only drilled 5 holes. I would guess thinner ice off of Schafers for now.

Captain Groda- Forget about Swift Creek!  It is not a part of Lake Onalaska.  Halfway Creek flows into the lake.

Looked to be a half dozen or so guys fishing at the end of Fishermans Rd this AM. Open water about 100-150 yards away from where guys were fishing. Shallow area that always holds first ice.

It's going to be tricky out there i am guessing the spots that were open yesterday froze over when the wind died down and are now covered in snow.

There was open water by Schaffer's and by the Airport lights yesterday morning. There was ice along the shore and in a couple of shallow bays but not enough for me. It is supposed to warm up this next week so who knows.
