Tried Squaw Bay this afternoon, 330 until 5 by one of the pump houses. Did a ton of hole hopping trying to find the fish and only got two. Two other guys out there when I arrived, neither were doing well. Ice was very soft on top but still water on top and looking down the holes and what I drilled wasn't too honeycombed. But the shorelines will not make it thru this warm spell :-( I remember 2002 being a lot like this. I lived in Whitewater back then and we didn't have safe ice after February 20th. Had to go north to get safe ice after that :-(

Tough bite today folks! Wife and I were out from 7 to 11 this morning and not much action.  We were able to sight fish in the shack.  Saw lots and lots of tiny bass, hardly no gills, and had a smaller walleye trolling the area.  Tried several different presentations and tipped them with spikes or waxworms.  Tiny flies, like the Copper John, got their interest, but no one was hungry enough to take it.  They can't stay on a hunger strike forever!

Went out friday the 30th from about 8:15am-5pm.  Walked straight out from frostwoods beach.  Anything south of that line on our way out had 4'' of ice or less.  Anything north of that line had a good 5-7" of ice.  There wasnt a whole lot of action throughout the day.  Had a few flags but nothing through the ice.

Just wondering how much ice is on Squaw bay. Saw about dozen and half shanty's/fishermen out there as I drove by just to see if there was anyone out there. Is the ice safe from Winnequah tr over to squaw along the shore or only from Frostwoods park across? Anything happening out there. Thinking about giving it a shot in the AM.

I am very lucky that we still have honest people around here on the ice. I lost my rods yesterday coming off the ice at Forest Woods Park and a truly honest fisherman left behind me and coincidentally a Monona Police Officer pulled into the lot and casually asked how the fish were biting and noticed that the rods were lying on the ground and asked if they were his and he replied no. The officer took the rods to the Police Dept. and entered them in the lost & found. By chance, one of my fishing buddies was out there today and heard of my misfortune and was talking to the guy that was in the parking lot when the officer pulled. He told my buddy the story and my buddy called me up and I rushed over to the Police Dept. and now have my rods.

Thank you all for your honesty and integrity. My faith in humanity has once again been bolstered.

Thank you in advance for your honesty and integrity.

Went out Sunday, not many others out so I was able to drill a bunch of holes and bounce around. The ice ranged from 4 inches down to under 3 in some spots. Lots of popping/cracking underfoot. Some holes the water was clear enough for site fishing (weeds all over) and other holes had cloudy water. Was there for 4 hours and did not mark or see a single fish.
