I went out on a solo mission last week. Very slow day but beats sitting at work. Maybe I was just doing it wrong. Seen a shack on the hump towards the middle. Word to the wise there’s a massive crack a 150-200 yds north of that South Bay where the boat launch is located. Cant miss it, water on top the ice. 6-7” good hard clear ice everywhere in that bay that I checked.

New to the area and headed up to Townsend for X-Mas weekend. Anyone recommend any lakes around Oconto County to ice fish? Thank you for the insight in-advance!

slvr fox, there is a thread a little ways down and a guy reported 2"-4" on some smaller lakewood area lakes. these cold temps will lock everything up good and you should be fine to venture out safely. give the baitshop a call as well, he will help you out....  (715) 276-7699 not open today, tomorrow they are

Just curious of any potential Ice reports on this lake...
How are things looking up there?

I am thinking of shooting up to a buddies cabin just prior to XMas.
Its a bit of a hike...trying to understand the potential for fishable ice a week from now.

Thanks for any and all input!!

MRiesen you should've been in about 35' of water and you were probably marking ether crappies or bluegills. I have had good luck in the past just casting out half a crawler with no weight and letting it free fall to where they are suspended. Good luck and tight lines!

Thanks for your input. My dad's Old electra pal trolling motor gave me problems. Figured out how to go to switch directly with high. So, I can go trolling now but high or nothing and I did borrow a 12' row boat. Picked up a Garmin Striker and found some schools about 100 yes NNE of South Bay. Thinking about going back to waypoint with crawlers and Leeches. Any other advice with current situations. Going to try advice on Wed.
