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.

I’m way behind the 8ball getting stuff ready. Have to finish up getting ready for winter. Hopefully it holds off for a bit.

I guess one too many years of rocks and coals in your stocking. lol
Move farther north if it bothers you that much. 
I was looking long-term in the Coulee region. Future Forecasting below freezing highs and low teens for lows early Dec. That will start the process unless warm weather returns.  Usual around the holidays for first ice adventures.

Looks like St.Nick will be bringing a stocking stuffer of cold air.

3 week trend back to below average! Hang in there folks, it might be a little later than most years this year but we will get there!

Going to hit 70 degrees down here next week and not get cold until at least mid December. New season, same story...

So cold up north the last week…. Ponds have frozen. Just a tease. Gonna warm up this weekend. But still pretty cold, 
The El Niño thing usually proves true. But up here, we’ll still have plenty of ice either way. We could use less snow after what we had last winter and it’ll be easier to walk around on the ice.

In 2019 I remember ice fishing the weekend before gun deer season in Madison.  That's the earliest I ever ice fished. It's about every 3 or 4 years we have fishable ice by Thanksgiving on some backwaters here. I hope we have a cold November this year!
