I didn’t see any bays that were completely iced over this weekend.  A bit of shore ice by big Arb and Lake Minocqua but even the pothole lakes off of 70 weren’t locked up.  There was more ice on DuBay than the lakes in Oneida and Vilas.  Swamps aren’t frozen completely either.  6” of fluffy snow is insulating it.

That would be perfect - the trails are tentatively set to open on December 12.

Not plum, I said small lakes and ponds. Plum will need a little longer. First half of December looks more like it.

Plum is 50 feet deep, you likely won’t be fishing Plum in November!

Finally made out to Plum Lake this weekend . I have not fished this lake since I was a kid . We found a nice little spot in Starlight Bay Friday morning and the blue gills were nuts on what looked like a may fly spread. First fish I hooked was a 3 inch bait stealer and all of a sudden a northern came out of no where and started chasing the gill. Lost the gill but hooked a 27 inch northern on my ultra light pan rod . We took home 10 good size blue gills. I came back the next day hit the same spot and the Gills would not budge , not even the bait stealers. Had another northen hit my worm and bobber and took my hook leader and worm. Was pissed, so picked up my musky rod and threw a few casts and caught a 22 inch northern which took care of the one that broke my gear. Two casts later caught a 24 inch northern and that was it . Wind and sun came in and headed home . Pics of the 27 inch and 24 inch

I have a 19' glass boat as well as a pontoon.  I don't have any trouble at the ski jump landing.  

I have not launched in Sayner proper in years...
