Has anyone floated the river from new lisbon to decorah lake and fished? Is it worth doing? TIA!
Fished from 9 AM to 1 PM. Went off boat landing on highway 12/16. Fished in 6-1/2' water. Ice thickness 10". Caught 3 nice 11" crappie and released some smaller ones on waxies. Lots of action on flasher but most wouldn't bite.
Anyone got any results on the tourney,was down there around 1 to grab some raffle tickets but couldnt stick around.
There was a decent sized open spot straight out from the boat launch this afternoon. Lower part of the lake had open spots along the entire channel. I’m not familiar with this lake however I was in the area for work and stopped by to check it out.
Looked pretty rough this afternoon. There was an open patch about 100 yards off the boat launch today. Lower part of the lake the channel is wide open. I only saw the one open spot in that bay and not too Familiar with that lake. A lot of people driving in and checking out the ice and saying the same thing I am.
How's the ice looking for the fisheree this weekend?
Checked out Decorah Lake in Mauston yesterday 12-28-18 by the boat landing on highway 12/16. There was open water in the middle and ice next to shore was unsafe in some spots. I would not chance it. Need a week or 2 again of cold weather to make ice.
With the warm weather and rain we had 12-27-18 does anyone know what the ice depth is off the boat landing on highway 12/16?
Below 40° F
21° - 25° F
Did anyone hear if there were any large fish registered during the tournament?
Fished a couple hours today, caught a few of the typical 7 inch bluegills.
