Was out on Templeton yesterday marked a few fish but caught nothing.
Marked quite a few large fish at 4' in 9' water, saw a few Pike caught.
I did find some very thin ice, be careful if heading out. Also, ice cleats are a must.
Wolf River - Fremont
MOON PHASE (62%)
Fishing was ok over weekend. Sounds like mostly pike. As far as the ice goes, Partridge is still foot traffic only. The back right area all the way down the wall is very sketchy. Some people are walking to back but you have to go around a crack that started in front of the ramp.
The bays around Fremont have about 7 inches but Templeton gets thin past the houses so not a good idea to venture too far past that. Some decent perch in there but they seem to move around a lot. Patience is the key.
Poygan sounds like it’s going to need so cold weather to refreeze but some people are going but staying close to shore.
The Big Cut off of Barbers Landing is not safe at all.
Pine Grove does have it blocked off for now and it’s the only access. I talked to them today and still only 1.5 to inches in there. Two pokes with spud bar and it goes through. Won’t take long with this weather as long as we get no more snow or rain.

Templeton and The Big Cut are still not fishable. Someone taped off access to Colic Slough so not sure if that means it done for ice fishing permanently.
We didn't lose the 4-5 inches but we do have a couple inches of crust now on top so make sure you have a spud bar. There are several back waters being fished from New London to Poygan but please be careful and check the ice. Just because its 4 doesn't mean its not 1 inch in another direction. It's never safe.
It's going to get cold especially later in week with a high at night of 1 degrees. Hopefully this is the last week we struggle to find good ice.
