Are they dumping the pool? Are the gates open at Genoa?
Mississippi River Stoddard Islands
MOON PHASE (6%)
For some odd reason there is lots of open water south of islands this year.... never seen it like this. Also, the Marina entrance is absolutely horrible, DO not walk through there! The current is also ripping the ice right off shore if you try walking out towards the islands.... this channel has several spots under 2 inches thick and you can see the darkness to the ice. Many people almost went through this weekend but luckily had there spud bar and caught themselves before walking out into these horrible spots. Once again, I have not seen it like this before, the variability of ice this year and open water is crazy.... can’t even imagine if a guy would try bringing a wheeler out... be safe if you do venture out here. Ice is very sketchy in the channels between islands.....

Ice is just getting to the SAFE/be carefull time, a few guys out today but fishing has been off due to cold front. many places I have fished are slow right now but things may be different when you get here. You can't catch them if your not here.
Well folks, Turkey time is over and there is room in the freezer for some delicious fish. 'Tis the season to be merry! - and since the weather is taking care of making ice, all you need to do is look ahead and plan for some good days of ice fishing. Call Mario to reserve your time. 920-493-8899
