I'm hoping to be on ice in shallow bays of southern WI by mid December, that is how its been the past 2 seasons. I recall being on ice by the end of November in these areas within the past 8 to 10 years, but I doubt that will happen

Iff,

Where in Gods country did you land?  Always looking for some hard water hunters to join up with.

Fished pool 8 for a couple hours today and some of the more sheltered backwater was skimmed over.
I'm a man, but I can change, If I have to, I guess.

Well, guys, I have been so dang busy, what with getting housing sold, closing on what looks like might be my forever home.  I landed in Beloit Township, Not to far from where I lived when I worked at the General Motors Janesville plant.  Now I will have to check back in a lot more often, was somewhat of a hassle getting setup with Internet, and TV.  So will be checking in here on IS a lot more often

Rapshack, ??? pool 8 ?  where might that be ? 
,
 tlzkaasen I will be considering the whole state fair game.  One thing for sure is I better beef up my membeship on here because I wouldn't doubt my PM's getting blown up

FilletShow, bigstorm, I brought with me a 2up snowmobile with me,  From Colorado, Have yet to fire it up, hasn't been run last couple years.  Will no doubt have to get it registered, not sure when/where that might come in play. ???  :unsure:

Was in Wisconsin for the 2002 year work related and never got to wet a line.  And think that was one of the years it turned so warm, the ice sculpturing thing at Prairie du Chien was canceled due to lack of ice.

A few brave souls out on Lake Onalaska today.  Spud went through with one whack so I'll wait a couple days yet.

It's 66 in La Crosse right now ??? and we're about to get smoked by a storm.  Looks like better temps for the rest of the 10 day though.
