I was looking to take my kids out to Shiocton this weekend to get them a few flags to chase. Could anyone tell me the ice conditions? Is there a ton of snow or slush on the ice? Any and all information is greatly appreciated! PM if you would like. Thanks!!!
Wondering if the bayou is froze over enough to fish..
How's the ice looking looking to get out on Saturday
Picking up anything in the biyu? How's the shore line?
Was out this morning with kids. Caught 11 pike nothing over 21". Kids had a blast.
26° - 30° F
The ice is plenty thick out there. My report says 7 inches but that's just to be safe. Its probably more. Yesterday, yes some of the banks were wet. In fact I stepped on it and my foot went through. It was slush, no ice underneath. Once you get to the actual ice it's fine. There are pallets thrown down at the bottom of the steps to act as a bridge.
As for a fishing report:
I caught around 20 crappies yesterday evening. Nothing over 9 inches. They were a little finicky. Seems like every hole has fish in it. One 6 inch bluegill. I didn't run tip ups but I saw a few go off.
Was thinking of fishing here with the kids late morning. Anyone have ice conditions here? I heard the shorelines are bad, and really don't want to deal with wet kids. Any info is greatly appreciated!!!
Plenty of ice and it froze back up nicely by the stairs so you don't have to walk through a foot of water anymore to get on the ice.
