Okay.... no I have not been fishing.  This late end to winter has us hopping to get things done here at the resort.  I have heard that the fish are mid spawn and the fishing is very good.  The water is low 40s with some warmer temps on the way.  It is shaping up nicely for a good spring. 

Have fun out there... be safe!

Hey Marti, when did the ice go out this week? Have you been out fishing yet? Are the walleyes spawning yet? I would imagine the water temp is in the upper 30's to low 40's? We'll buy you a beer next week at Dublin's. Thank you in advance for any info you can share.

Not open yet, but very soon.  South winds pushed the ice out passed the island this morning and today will be a very warm day.  I did hear that south Twin is open.

Thanks for the ice update Marti! I would imagine Twin still is not completely ice free yet? I just looked at the Lake Tomahawk webcam and Tomahawk still has ice. We will be up fishing Twin the 17th-20th. Can't wait!

There is about 13 inches of ice yet to go.  It will be gone in a few days I would guess.

Really appreciate your updates Muskyslayer1983. Good luck fishing this spring! The walleye action should be fast and furious very soon. Tight lines

Check out the lake link vilas county page. Still plenty of ice on the bigger lakes. I posted a few of big sand from a couple days ago. I am heading up tomorrow. Will update when I get up there. Hoping, to possibly get the piers in by Tuesday. That's probably not going to happen, but you never know. Pictures are from yesterday, we are on the north shore. Can no longer access Big Sand from the boat landing. Ice usually goes out on Sand before it does on North Twin.

Can someone please send a current ice report? I'm assuming there's still quite a bit of ice on Twin yet? Thank you in advance, trying to finalize when I can plan my May fishing trip. 

Good luck to everyone that are hitting the smaller lakes this weekend!

Any updates on the ice conditions? My guess is the ice will be gone around the 8th.

I agree with Rob...it is not likely to be open for the opener.  The good news is that the snow on top is deteriorating to a wet slush and soon the ice will be fully exposed.  I do not know the exact depth of the ice as of now, but I have heard reports of up to 30 inches or so.  I plan to go check the depth in the coming days as the top gets more clear.  My current feeling is that we will be using tip ups for the opener.
