Stepped on the shelf ice for the first time this season today

I scouted it yesterday and noticed someone had drilled about half a dozen holes

Ice is SCETCHY (as it always is on this river) there is a main slab of about 4" clear solid ice running from ramp to flag post that being said the stretch from there to the open water is around 2"

I  got skunked

left before my nose fell off in the frigid cold marked some that would not commit there were three more guy's fishing with same result

in essence do as I say and not as I do I'd not recommend getting on that ice at least for now

be safe

I read a report that said cant wait till March 8 to do fishing. What significance does March 8 have?. If I read it right fishing season forwalleye starts first week in may. Guys fish the wisc. River throughout April right?. So this must mean you canfish for walleye in April but you can’t keep them?. Would like to come up in april please advise

thanks early retirement;  fished there once last winter. my friend lives a few doors away from Deerfoot; caught some crappies  in a hole  out from his house. that ice  can be sketchy i guess because of the lowered water level. Have a great holiday!!

my second to last day of the open fishing season.  River was low and was barely able to clear rapids.  caught smallmouth, quillback, perch, crappie, and a bunch of short walleye and sauger--- ran out of bait.  went back the next day and things were much slower, had 22  between 2 guys with 1 keeper.  Saw people catching fish drifting down the river and anchored in holes.  Not much safe ice out there right now, temped to check the river again.

Went out yesterday (12/8) for a last open water attempt and it could be summarized in one word "slow" Fished all day resulting in 5 eyes with none being legal and 2 sturgeon. water temp was right at 32-33 degrees and a lot of skim ice was floating down river. tried jigs, split shots, vertical jigging, anchoring, and couldn't figure them out. The only fish we caught were in one area and didn't mark a ton.
