Went to check ice this afternoon around 1 PM and found no less than 4 inches. No water on top of the ice either.


I also ran into Jon B (big YouTube fishing vlogger) and a couple guys with him. They hadn't caught anything of note yet. I was very surprised to find him fishing Wingra. Nice guy though. We were staring into the sun so our eyes are closed in the photo lol.

Went out this past Thursday and had 4 Inches in the channel above the dam, was still open water on the main lake though. Caught some small gills, haven’t checked ice since.

I am a college student at UW but I am from North-Eastern Wisconsin and have never fished wingra. I live pretty close to it this year and am really looking forward to giving it a go once the ice is solid. Would anyone be nice enough to drop a couple hints for me on where to try and what tactics work best on Wingra?

PM me Please!

Thanks!

Last year I got a small aquarium for bait in between fishing outings. I have now upgraded and am looking to sell it. 5.5 gallon with new filter and thermometer. I kept shiners in it largely for use at Wingra.

Like a week and a half ago before the last warm up there was quite a bit of current below the dam and very little ice there until below the bridge. I havent checked there since. Lake Wingra was froze over but im unsure of how thick it was.
