It's almost here. When are you hoping to get out and what part of the state? 

Couldn't find the original thread, so I started this one.

Local early ice spot will be ready by tomorrow morning, it was close this morning. I won't be able to get out until Saturday and things should be ​pretty solid by then! Fingers crossed no major snow in the forecast!

Drove around quite a bit today within Vilas county. Lots of thin ice out there on small lakes. Didn’t check the big lakes, but I’m sure they’re open water for the most part. Lost Lake was a frozen/open mix..Here are some pictures. Each one is a different body of water. Very difficult to not get excited after seeing ice start to form once again!

I think some will be out on Sunday on very small shallow lakes or waters… but by next weekend, it’ll be go time for “first icers”  on quite a few watets-, just not the  deep or big lakes.

When ya thinking people will be venturing out up there pike? Are you guys getting ice to last all day or is it melting by the afternoon? I was all set on giving it until the first weekend in December, but lakes are clearly ready to freeze and even getting down into the low 30's a lot of bays and ponds have been icing over overnight in central WI. Might need to take a ride up north on Sunday to scratch the itch.

Northern Wisconsin. It’s in the view! When you have a number of days that are below freezing with Lows around 12, it doesn’t take long on small lakes and shallow bays. Starting Wednesday. Cold. Cold. Cold.

Saw a buried cable flag today. Thought it was a tip up for a split second.

I'm off December 18th to January 5th. Hoping to get on the ice in that time frame. I'm in Burlington, but will travel a bit. Used to go up to Woodruff and fish Carroll early ice every year. I'm too old and tired to do all that solo anymore. 100 miles is my new limit I've imposed on myself. 

I have a newer fishing buddy at work that has the same time frame off. He's never been on the ice so hoping to drag him somewhere and get him hooked.
