7 inches on some of the small potholes in Sawyer County.caught and released a load of crappie. Hard seeing those light bites in the wind but lots of fun
threw the drone up on Castlerock lake for a look at first ice!
Thanks pike. For those se wi guys just drove past beaver and it’s totally iced over. I’m sure it’s thin but wow-11/16 that’s early!
Probably going to go with the little warm up here but still.
If you’re fishing the smaller lakes in Presque Isle, I would think you’re fine. Good ice on most smaller lakes in vilas county.
Does anyone know ice conditions on Presque Isle area lakes? Lynx, Van Vliet, Little Horsehead? I'll be there next weekend and will post what I find... I see Presque Isle lake is open of course, I'll be on the smaller lakes in the area.
Tried Pelican for perch. 3 dinks no other bites.
Ice is 7" in mud Bay on a ruler.
Good to see some of you doing well. The more and more people I talk to… early ice is not the best fishing. Thinking back to my history, I must agree with that as well. But, somebody’s got to open up the lake- and I’m glad to do it.
Plenty of good ice on the back slews of the Wisconsin River in Stevens Point. About 4in measured today. Lots of panfish but you really need to sort through them. Not much biting on tipups right now but did manage to pull up a 47in musky today. Pulled up just long enough to snap a few pics and let her go.
31° - 35° F
5 inches of good ice measured with a tape measure by sportsman's loop and Beaver creek. Caught nine keepers. Miller Dam flowage
