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?

Sawyer county lakes are still solid as well, had 20" on 4 different lakes ranging from 100-800 acres. One lake opening up a bit along the shorelines but otherwise no issues. Cold weather this week should prolong the season another week. Fishing was great as well, love this time of year.

Ice was in great shape today. Quite a few people out at various lakes too.

No slush. Easy to get around. Everything really solid. Had about 18 inches. Yes, it's in layers, and who knows how long it will last, but it does look like we've gotten a bit of an extension to our season these next 10 days or so.

Fishing was decent. Barometer started around 30.70. That's huge. Dropped steadily through the day.

I was usually looking forward to ice fishing in March.  I would even take my spring break vacation in Minocqua.  Now?  I would like to make a trip up there, but I am more likely to just do my end of season maintenance and put stuff away.  One of these years I am going to go north for the perch bite at dawn, then down to south central WI and chase gills with fly rod on the same day.  Fun daily double action.

Heading out tomorrow in Vilas Co. Will report how ice is. 

My job duties are up in the air for a few weeks here...so might be able to get on the ice a number of times before ice out. Been really cold the past few days, giving us a bit of an extension to the season. Once it warms up, the ice will go pretty fast.

They'll just move north to Sand Bay until that breaks off too.

I've been pretty much done this whole winter. Most years I get out 2-3 times a week. This year only went out twice. Just didn't get into it this year. I'm ready for open water!

SE WI getting pretty dangerous.  We never had much ice down here, lots of lakes only had 8 inches of ice at most. Now its 8 inch of black, waterlogged ice which is not quite as safe as 2.5 inch early season black ice
