I am not. Still hoping to catch some nice fish this year through the ice. Conditions right now are brutal with all the snow, slush, and ice up north. I am taking a few weeks off. But, with the temps falling after this warm up and all that ice still left, I'm expecting to have a few trips left this year yet. Hopefully the snow doesn't melt suddenly and eat that ice away, but there is just so much ice left, I'd have to think we have quite a bit of time yet, at least up north and probably most of the state. Nothing better than catching fish in 50 degree weather on top of 20 inches of ice! Are you done? Ready for open water? Or, still planning on catching some fish through the ice?

Got out again today. Beautiful day. 18 inches of ice on the lake I was at. Ice still was relatively strong. Have a little time yet to still ice fish in Vilas County... Fishing wasn't as good as Tuesday, but still got some nice fish and it was a great mental activity right now.

Was on a west-central WI lake with a small current through it yesterday. Had 3" of frozen slush, 2" of water and then 6" of good ice. Gave you a little scare when you would break through that top layer occasionally. Hard to find a spot to walk on, probably my last time out in this area.

got out today and found 21 inches of ice. Really good fishing. Still have some time to take a mental health break from all this and get out ice fishing!

Was able to get the ATV out on 2/3 lakes this weekend, north shore access points ice is starting to separate from the shorelines. Sad to see! Should be fine for walking on for awhile but I think the ATV saw it's last weekend on the ice.

Rough fishing overall, 7 degree AM temp made it feel more like mid-season than late ice and the fish seemed in about the same mood.

Bugle-Sorry to see your season end this way. It sure stinks! That's for sure!


Seen a few trucks on a lake today. Still some season left....

Kinda hoped to come up north to our place this weekend for one last horrah on the ice for some crappie action. Folks and local leaders seem apprehensive about us coming up so we might decide to stay clear. So I guess I’m done. Sucks but I don’t want to be that guy who wipes out a community.

Looks like the season is going to continue for a while yet. Was out today. Fantastic conditions and still 17.5 inches of ice. Solid too. I know it'll go quick once it's ready, but we still have some time yet. Oh yeah, great bite as well. Fish were hungry!

Still not done!!!

Was stomping through old holes with 3" of ice on them in the Eau Claire area last night. Rain turned some shoreline ice dark but no open water and basin was still solid. Mid 40s-50s all next week with sunshine and it'll go fast but for now it's surviving the rain. Hoping Hayward area got less rain than we did in EC. 

Fishing was unfortunately not worth the torture of fishing in a downpour lol

Rain wasn't as bad as they predicted in Vilas Co today and the temps were cool. So, basically, a 34 degree day with light rain much of the day. Turned to snow around 6:00. Could have been worse. Cold rain doesn't seem to affect ice much. For example, we had an inch of ice on our road coming in yesterday, and there still looks to be an inch as of tonight. Nothing really changed. 

So, a little more ice season yet! Gotta get out while we can.
