I was out hunting this morning and there was quite a bit of ice. Even the river was skimmed over. I broke up ice for my decoys and an hour later it was skimmed up.

Any fisherman is really lucky to having several private shore spots to fish, especially at this time of year.  I'm pretty sure both launches in Waterford are closed.  In past years, I have launched late in the year up by the DNR launch (by iron bridge) but it can be tough there if pier is out or ice is around shallows.  Except for locals, other boat traffic should be next to zero.

With present extended forecast, get the auger sharpened up.

I have access to several shore areas in the area. Calm or calmer water seems to be a key this time of year.i believe it allows the sun to penetrate the water better and warm up the mud bottom. Some weeds dead or alive are also necessary.

   Just wanted to mention for you hard water fishermen.  New bait shop opened in Big Bend connected to the gas station on 164.  Rivers Edge bait and supply.  Don't know how the bait is as I didn't know about it till I packed up my fishing for the year.

Yes Bass Whackers correct on that. Spring through fall people fish mainly below dam but water in 30s now so pretty much dead.

When I pull my boat out of the water at the library launch there is almost always people fishing above and below the dam there. I don't know how good the fishing would be as of right now, they have drawn the water down a few feet between that dam and the Rochester dam, so the water level is pretty low. I have seen and heard of alot of small smallies caught below the library dam though..
