I'm new to the site and new to the great state of Wisconsin.  Not much ice where I came from in Maryland.  Moved to Kiel, WI last April.  New at the ice fishing stuff but am enjoying the learning process.  So far I've only caught 3 small rainbows, but you would have enjoyed seeing my dance on the ice when I landed the first one.   Namvet

Sorry didn't see your message. I started building an 8x8 permanent. It's pretty much done now. 3/4" plywood floor, stick framed with 2x4" wannabees (i actually started with 2x2s but added another layer.) Added the second layer of studs so i could do 3 1/2" fiberglass insulation. 10,000 btu propane heater. Barn red in color!

I just bought a Frabill Prowler GT 2 person flip over a month ago. Can't wait to use all this stuff!!!

Yeah, I hear you about the eerie whizzing sound..... but we don't enlist to get shot at either, but it does happen.  Unless I die, I'll always hunt gun season.  Guess I'm the opposite of you, only gun hunt, and I gonna give pistol hunting a go.  I really don't see the appeal of bow hunting... I tried a few years back, what a waste, I could have spent that money on some good ice fishing gimmicks instead.  I guess it's just not deer hunting to me unless I smell gunpowder and hear the loud bang.

I was thinking about it but I'm sick of spending money on it and just want it to be done! So it probably won't happen. Chances are it would just look funny too. Might try to sell it next year and then build one that could literally serve as a small cabin.

No offense taken. ;)  4 yrs ago, That was the longest year of my life....  At least I got a 2 week leave to come home and get some ice fishing in late in the season.

The pistol thing will be interesting this year, considering I've never shot any handgun larger than 9mm before I got this .44 mag.  It's one big piece of stainless steel, so far when I've been on the range with it, I'm having trouble holding it steady enough to get consistent good shots, gonna have to use a shooting stick this year.  The thing weighs about 3 lbs loaded.

No, don't know any of them. I petty much fish alone in the winter. When I fish Wissota I'm mainly by Camp Kennwood I do go over by the View now and then. Most the people I know don't like the cold and think I'm crazy for sitting on the ice all day and in the summer some of them don't fish with me because I'm realy into CPR.
Where do you live? I live about 2 blocks from the Yellow River boat landing. PM me sometime and mybe we can go fishing together now and then.
Pray for ice,

So what are you fishing?  BD, Fox, And Lazy?  What about Puck? or Emily?  Or Big Green?  Or the Winnebago Chain?  Castle Rock?  Petenwell?  I usually just get to Fox and BD. (works out nice since I live right between them) I haven't fished Lazy for 3 years now, and don't plan too anytime soon.  I try to get to Big Green a couple times a year to try to hoist out a laker.  Petenwell once or twice a year.  Fished Puck half a dozen times last year, did ok, never kept anything though.  But after the walleye massacre and the late shad hatch, I'll probably pass on Puck this year.  I'm too chicken to fish bago, ice is really shifty out there.  Heard some good things about Poygan though, might have to give that a try this year.  Used to fish Devils lake state park a few times a year too, can usually hoist at least one brown out of there per trip.  Guy I work with keeps telling me I should check out Redstone for some crappies, maybe.

Lazy first ice, BD for a bit after that and then Fox the rest of the winter.  I used to mix in a few trips to Little Green as well but thats been a few years too.  Been probably 5 years since I hit Puckaway.  My 1st outting of the year was today and it wasn't impressive.

Mike from Lake Country in the SE part of the state. I stumbled in here last year; loved the info and was very impressed by the community. Wife was diagnosed with cancer for Christmas last year and ice fishing took a back seat. After an incredibly nasty surgery and some of the worst chemo known to man, she's still here and so far so good. Which means that life may be returning to normal. We'll see..........

I had intentions of broadening my horizons last year and I intend to follow that. I know that I can get all the info here I need on the stuff I don't know about.

Pleasure to be back,

HEY!!!!! FLAAAAAAAG!

Hey Nick!

   I fish alot of different lakes.  I fish some of the lakes off of 40,  fireside etc.  I fish upper long quite a bit and lac courte oreilles.  Closer to home I fish wissota a couple of times a year along with glen loch once or twice at early ice.  Depending on the year, I may fish marshmiller a time or two.  I also have a list of lakes to try. 
Nick, where do you like to fish?

I'm from Rice Lake. 

I made it on the ice Sunday for a little recon...  The ice is 2-3 inches, but after the 6" of white stuff, it's awful slushy and it's really creaky.  All the weight from the snow and slush has made the ice too spooky for this cat...  Hopefully with the lows in the single digits all week, we'll freeze up the slush and get back to making ice.  I was really hoping to get out this coming weekend, but we'll have to see what happens with the slush...

Nope, sorry, don't fish Michigan.  I'm on other sites but with a different handle.

Edit: anyone fish the Winnebago or Shawano areas much?  Those are the spots I would call "home" if I had to.  Maybe run into one of you guys sometime.  Met a guy who used to post here years ago, think he went by Igor.  He still around at all?

All set to fish Lower Turtle Lake this afternoon (just sourth of Hiway 8).  On west side, ice close to shore was maybe 4 inches.  Lots of holes from guys testing the ice with spuds.  Further out  thinned fast.  Could have fished it, but felt uncomfortable so will wait until next weekend.  East side had less ice with very few test holes.  No one fishing and don't think anyone has been.

Magnor Lake south of Clayton had people on the west side in the bays fishing - three, counting two portable shacks.  East side didn't look good, and no test holes.

Here's a report on Turtle-Flambeau Flowage ice conditions.  Our guests report good ice, 3"-4", in the Lake Bastine Region.  Guide Bobby Orr emailed me that he is finding 6"-8" of ice near the Sturgeon Bay Landing.  Walleye action has been slow, but will hopefully improve with the low pressure front moving in tonight.

Hey Junior,

A lot of good lakes up here,  the main difference is mostly fishing deeper water, and bigger areas.  Used to live down near the river, and fished mosemans, the turn around, along with spots by Fountain City, Winona, Trempleau, and Onalaska.  You will have to come up some time and try it.

Have read a lot of stuff on this site over the last couple years but just decided to sign up now. I suppose I could be in the boat fishing on the river still but all I can think about is the hardwater. Hope we have a good season this year, get on the ice during deer season and the snow doesnt get too deep to make getting out later too difficult.

Wouldn't have happened to be glen loch? I drove down the boat landing last night and seen ice out there was going to go check today with the spud. With these cold nights shouldn't take long.

Well, this isn't really what I wanted to see at all. My buddy owns Bent's Camp in Land O Lakes and sent me these pics of this week. All totaled in the last 2 weeks, we've received 24-25" of snow already....which is bad because the lakes have frozen and a lot of snow has fallen on top of it. Looks like a nasty year of slush unless we can get that snow to melt off and re-freeze.

2 years ago I did well both open water, and hard water.  Last year everything I caught was small, and fishing was slow.  Have not fished it this year.  There did seem to be a good year class of crappies that should be nice next year.

With the weather this week I am definitely taking some tip ups and jig rods to deer camp. One of our stands is only 40 yards from a flowage....sit in my stand waiting on a deer and watch tip ups....can't think of a better day.

New member, long time lurker. After living in Wisconsin for 11 years I have finally pulled the trigger and begun acquiring ice fishing gear. Just picked up a frabill flip over ice house and plan to grab a marcum showdown and a nils auger. Seen that Mills has Black Betty combos for $25 on black Friday so I plan to grab a few of those. Plan to fish lake Menomin mostly but would love to hit those harbor trout!

Look forward to sharing my success and failures!

Welcome Browning, there's pile of great stuff here.

Welcome to you too WBH, got a daughter in Fort so I get down toward that area occasionally. Fished Koshkonong a few times but got a lot to learn there...

Crappy news of the day: Mother of all El Ninos is well entrenched and that does not bode well for a decent ice season here in God's Country. That means if you have an opportunity, any opportunity, you better take it or it might evaporate.

A lot will have to change to see ice before December in the southern half of the state.  Let's keep our fingers crossed that this balmy weather leaves quickly.  Not that I mind fishing from the boat a while longer, it just has me concerned about the ice season.  Hopefully it will be more like the last couple we had.

Hi from the northwoods. I'm looking forward the the upcoming ice season. However I seldom fish here in the state. I travel a lot due to the poor quality of many lakes nearby. I attribute the poor fishing to pressure and lack of slot limits. In my opinion (and many other local fishermen) our smaller lakes can't withstand the fishing pressure. This may sound extremely negative however it has been the general consensus among avid fishermen here in the northern part of the state.

Hey everyone, Def. getting the itch now with the shallow parts of the lakes starting freeze up! Anyone else going to any of the ice fishing expo's coming up?

Checking in from Burlington Wisconsin. Wow, got my jig rods and tip-ups ready about a month ago (just in case), and it looks like I will be waiting a WHILE for fishable ice down here. Sucks. Boat is put away so I spend my free time watching ice fishing videos on YouTube. I might even take a trip up north in a few weeks if necessary just to scratch the itch. Dangit!!

I think I will have to take the upcoming weekend off after fishing the last 2. Ice was pretty soft when we walked off Sunday night, way worse than it was the prior weekend. The good news is the week after should offer some good ice making with lows dropping to single digits.

Absolutely painful is all I can say!  I still have ice when I log in and look at my security cam.  However, that ice is probably 1/4" at this point and it looks like we get 1 day in the single digits for the next 10 days.  That's not going to cut it.

I just got an email from my neighbor....our 650 acre on the boarder is wide open in the middle. It's average depth is maybe 7-8'. So larger lakes up in Lando, like LVD and Black Oak, those will be lucky to be iced over by Christmas.

The folks I feel the worst for are the resorts, bars and restaurants who depend on income from snowmobilers.

I remember the days of fishing Grass Lake, and other areas along the  river,  catching 100 plus fish just to get a half dozen keepers.  Heck of a fishery, just hard to get it past the little ones to get to the keepers.  Used to get some really good northern too. 

Do you ever ice fish walleyes below the dam in Trempealeau?

Just got back from a week up on the Wi/Mi boarder. The lake I'm on is a 650 acre, shallow and weedy. I got up last Sunday and we had open water in the middle. Popped a couple of holes in our bay and came up with 3-5" of ice.

(https://www.iceshanty.com/ice_fishing/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FP1uFhMwl.jpg&hash=f6b30655196cbf09de4e6f7acc6c5426)

So I decided to hop on the ATV and head over the Cisco Chain and saw dudes out there 1/2 mile with atvs and sleds. So I spend the entire week over there. Makeing my way out further and further as the days went by. By saturday we had about 8-9" of decent ice about 1 mile off the landing. Going was easy. We only had 1-2" of snow cover and missed the storm last monday that dumped 10" on SE Wis. Fishing Walleyes with flags only. Caught a bunch of dinks and kept 5 for eaters.

Up until 1992 I fished walleyes below dams quite often.  That year we were fishing below the Genoa dam in late February on 30" of ice when I went to "relieve" myself on the Minnesota side of the river.  I missed my track from the first "relief" I had taken and fell through and landed on top of the wingdam there.  Got wet to my thighs and have never been out there since.  I CAN TAKE A HINT!!!!

Yeah you have to be extremely careful.   One Saturday I was fishing about 50 yards on the main channel from the bullnose, and about 75 yards below it. If memory serves, there was 10-12 inches of ice where I was.  I  was catching a lot of small sauger,  and eyes. There was a guy (if I mentioned his name, I am sure you would know him), who was way up by the locks standing on ice, but fishing in the open water.  Since the fish were biting so good on Saturday, and was fun, I went back on Sunday, only to find where I had fished the day before was wide open.   That was the last time that I fished there.  The unnamed gentleman must have been fishing on almost nothing. Very lucky he was not a statistic.

Checking in from Racine.  I just moved here from St. Louis a few months ago.  Originally from upstate NY.  I have all my gear ready and I'm looking to meet some fishing buddies.  I like to fish for just about anything and I love eating what I catch. 

Went out Sunday to Wind Lake.  -5F without wind, -30F with wind.  Caught a 25" northern on a large shiner just shy of the 26" minimum.  Had to check my holes often as they were freezing over in 30 minutes.

Will trade venison jerky or sausage for tips!  I'd like to find some walleye and friends on the ice close to me.

Because one of the guys I was with does eat them.  The course allowed us to fish their ponds, with my buddy the Superintendent, was because they're emptying all of them this spring. So, they'd have become fertilizer or table fare.

I fished the Cisco Chain this past weekend, 21 inches of ice and travel conditions are perfect with zero slush as of this am. Even with some warm weather coming up this week, pan fishing should be good for next weekend yet.

Thanks for the report 52! I'll be headed up to St. Germain area for crappies on tipdowns when I get "the call"....  ;D At least I won't need the auger extension. BTW, outside chance, you don't happen to know a Hollowell? Old work friend of mine was fishing Lando this past week.

Nope, I don't recall ever hearing that name. Some pics of last weekend.

We ended up with only a few walleyes, 2 keepers, but did get a few bottle sized perch. Conditions were amazing, except for the near blizzard on friday. Hopefully the ice hangs on for a few more weeks so I can get back out for some pan fish.

Ah! Now that's a sandwich! I fished down here on Sunday. Had maybe 8" of good ice left in Icehouse Bay on Okauchee. Some crappies, an 18" LMB, a 32" pike and a 46" musky got some sunlight. Everything was kept except the 'ski (of course). Pretty tight fit back down the hole. Won't be much left down here after this week.....

I know it's time...... Lots of folks lookin' to scratch the itch and no better place than good ol' IS. What a great place to learn and share with a zillion folks with a common interest.

I'm back, not everyday yet, but back nonetheless. How's about the rest of you WI hardwater fishers? Old Goat, you don't count, you live here all year  ;) (thanks for all your "great sale updates", I wish I was closer to Madtown sometimes).

Crappy news of the day: Mother of all El Ninos is well entrenched and that does not bode well for a decent ice season here in God's Country. That means if you have an opportunity, any opportunity, you better take it or it might evaporate.

Hah! I got it again!!! Zombie alert! Not only that but I got the last post here in March and I get to kick it off again.

Hey Cheesehead Icefisherfolks, time to rear our ugly heads and scratch the ice itch.  :clap: Some of the standbys have already started.  :thumbsup:

Better weather news this year: drier and colder than last. i like that, despite the fact that all my "Up North" connections are calling for warm and wet.  ::) I guess we'll see.

OK Cheeseheads, sound off and let's see who's still here and who's new in the zoo. Welcome in advance to all the noobs, if you love ice fishing this IS the place to be. Great info and an even greater community!

Ready...... Set........ Flaaaaaag!  :tipup: :tipup: :tipup:

Txs 52. I got down here figured out, Three Lakes but you're a good 30 minutes or better north of that.

It's interesting where weather breaks form. I can be one thing here but YOY if you look at Oshkosh it's always very different. My ice season id pretty well freed up. Perhaps we meet on Palmer, Tenderfoot (or Black Oak). You fish much across into the UP or just stay on the "cheesy" side?

I fish down here because it's convenient. North, I fish St. Germain (Big, Little, Lost, Found) , Sayner (Plum) and Conover (Little Tamarack Flowage), Forest County (Butternut, Franklin), been on LVD a coupla times or wherever the wind blows. I fish out in front on 3 Lakes because it's easy and I can. Not much happening there but late season crappies are a "secret" possibility.

Coupla years the 3 Lakes place will be my retirement digs and once I get that far, it becomes a target rich environment....  @) Now I got more time, no telling what might happen.

I spend most of my time alternating between Rock Lake, Lake Emily, and Fox Lake looking for panfish. Will be avoiding Lake Emily for awhile - given the report of a big blue gill die-off in June. I'm thinking of expanding my choices to lakes east of me - in the Oconomowoc area.

I guess I wouldn't mind trying BD again. I've had very spotty luck with the summer fishing. Maybe winter would be different. I've only been on it a few times. Lazy is a much better bass lake than an ice fishing lake, but you can get a decent amount of panfish most of the time.

Joined the forum to learn more about fishing opportunities in the Hudson and surrounding area.  So far from what I've skimmed, there seems to be many friendly and knowledgeable people here.

Welcome to IS everyone!

@Uglymug: Beaver Dam location and you don't fish BD? Ok. I guess. I do Fox a couple/few times a year, been on Lazy once (ice) and a few more open water. You are within striking distance of plenty of water.

@dambeckr: Left the North Woods to come south? Are you (fill in the blank)??????  ;)2 Another couple, three years will find me in Three Lakes (the "near North according to some).

@vinny: Heck, I don't even know where Otter Creek is but welcome aboard!

@eriksat1: "Be careful out there....."  :thumbsup:

@roverman: I want to fish some of those giant pike you got up there! Planning a whitey/walleye combo trip in Jan. sometime w/my son.

@tlarwa:  Hartford, right up the road from me....

And HIMO, thank you for all you do!

                                thank you Esox.

Geez 52, are you kiddin'?  ;) I waited last couple of years until October to shake this tree. I love the "zombie alert" banner.
 
Don't worry, there's plenty of global warming left... ;)2 You up at Lando full time now or just getting ready for some fall muskies? I've got the next couple of weekends + a handful of weekdays starting tomorrow. It's still the "Near North" for me. Retirement is probably under 500 days, maybe a lot less than that. We'll see. Then it's frontage @ Three Lakes and a target rich environment.

@ Junkie: I'm still planning on row trolling the couple of days I have before gun season. That is always a hoot! I'll be thankful if we have walking ice here by Christmas.

I'd bet the smaller, shallower lakes will have 3" of ice by this weekend. Heard some already have up to 1" and the next two days in the teens and single digits should thicken it up nicely. The warm-up next week will probably keep the bigger lakes open for another couple weeks unfortunately.

My son, myself and my sons 2 Brother-in Laws went to Blue Springs lake located by Palmyra, Wi. in Jefferson county, south eastern part of the state on saturday. we caught 4 northerns and 2 perch but the highlight of the trip was a monster Northern Pike my son had on. The thrill lasted 35 seconds and the fish got off at the bottom of the hole. A jigging pole,2lb. test and no leader were the fatal error. Still it was a thrill to be there. I saw the fish on our Marcum underwater camera. What a beast. There now you have the story of the one that got away.LOL !!!

I wouldn't advise making a trip for big pike at Blue Spring lake. I have caught a few 30 to 32 inches. Most in 22 to 27 range. Lake seems to keep you on your toes and good if your looking to pickle one.

That's OK. those 26 - 28"s are great in the fryer too! Used to be before the size limit I'd keep down to 24" for ease of slipping those y-bones out. Gotten better at that over the years too. I know a guy up north keeps 'em all and fillets 'em. No pickled fish for Jim...

Lots of good info, tips, and laughs from this website. I can't thank you all enough.

Coming up to the Minocqua area, Little Arbor Vitae specifically, on Jan 25th. Anyone have any advise of any kind? We are just looking to get on some fish, walleyes preferably, and enjoy the company. We'd be willing to try any lake in the area but our cabin is right on LAV and we've never fished this area.

Thanks again, I look forward to the conversations...

Welcome aboard guys! Ojibwa, I've fished the Chip several times but never through the ice. Looking forward to your reports!

And Joe, can't tell you much about LAV. Hit BAV a couple times for fall muskies. It's always helpful if you add your location to your profile, then we know "where you're coming from". I do get to fish around the St. Germain area fairly often and used to hit the Minocqua chain for 'skis in August for a few years.

Good luck and stay safe!

Esox,
I'm from quad city area on the Illinois Iowa border, our ice season is often short if we get enough at all. My buddy who started these trips is from Appleton, we used to fish around Crandon but decided to venture to minocqua area this year. We have watched tip ups at Stacks Bay on Minocqua and on Sweeny with good luck but looking forward to fishing out the back door. Would rather fish with pole in hand and with the ability to get on ice early, late, and possibly at night.

Welcome to Gods' Country Joe! I spent a good part of my adolescence in Iowa 'cept more North Central (Forest City). Moved to Wisconsin with a minor push from my pal. I was coming here every other weekend for something or other anyway.

Good luck on LAV. Just a few miles east is the Rainbow, filled with walleyes and big perch (if you're willing to hunt 'em down). That same "neck of the woods" has Pickerel, Sugar Camp Chain and Big St. Germain. All decent water. Can't say what the slush situation is off hand. You guys have ice transportation or are you walking out?
Title: Re: check in:Wisconsin members
Post by: joekuhl10 on Jan 13, 2018, 06:40 PM
We'll have a Polaris 4 seater utv type vehicle to get great out and explore different spots. We'd rather not drive out, even if others do, anymore and we don't setup camp until we've found a good spot.
Can we leave a pop-up shelter setup if it's anchored and tagged with owner info? It'd be nice to be able to leave it and go out late or at night without having to set up a shelter in the dark. Plus it's easier to talk yourself out of it if it's gonna be work...
It is God's country and I always enjoy myself but I got a nice little slice of that down here too. Maybe when I retire...
Title: Re: check in:Wisconsin members
Post by: esox_xtm on Jan 13, 2018, 06:53 PM
Don't blame you for not wanting to put a real vehicle on the ice. I generally don't either unless I'm 110% certain. As far as leaving a popup on the ice, legally you'd be good but still at your own risk depending on how much you trust people. Sad to say but stuff can still happen, even in the "North".

And yes, you've got to find ways to be happy where you're at too...  ;)2

Hello all. Brand new to the forum and new to ice fishing.  Been making memories with our youngest over the last couple of days.  No fish yet, but well worth the time hanging with our boy.  I look forward to learning a ton from you all.

Welcome Scottjags, I am located on the opposite end of hwy 60 along the Wisconsin river. Best advice I can give you is ask a lot of questions to the people fishing around you. Most of us are willing to share some info especially when kids are involved. Maybe borrow some equipment from a friend, a flasher for finding fish and a power auger to make moving around easier are great help. Good luck and keep at it.

Thanks Lenny.  I have definitely been researching flashers.  For cost savings I ended getting an Eskimo hand auger, but boy that really takes some work.  Although I need the exercise, a power auger may be on the wishlist real soon as well.  Scott

Just moved to Sheboygan, looking to do some fishing relatively close by (hour drive or less preferably). Any suggestions on lakes? Not asking for any secret holes, just a little advice and maybe a fishing buddy ;D :tipup:
Title: Re: check in:Wisconsin members
Post by: esox_xtm on Jan 16, 2018, 06:23 AM
Welcome to the Ice Shanty Quinnifer. I'm not real close but there are a few options for you to look at. Elkhart and Random lakes on the inland side are within striking distance. If Sheboygan is like Milwaukee, the harbor area may offer some ice opportunities but you'll probably need a Great Lakes trout stamp if you wish to do that, still a bargain.

Pop back into your profile and add your location so folks know where you're at on future posts. Hope someone with more experience in that neck of the woods chimes in.

Good luck to you and stay safe!

We'll have a Polaris 4 seater utv type vehicle to get great out and explore different spots. We'd rather not drive out, even if others do, anymore and we don't setup camp until we've found a good spot.
Can we leave a pop-up shelter setup if it's anchored and tagged with owner info? It'd be nice to be able to leave it and go out late or at night without having to set up a shelter in the dark. Plus it's easier to talk yourself out of it if it's gonna be work...
It is God's country and I always enjoy myself but I got a nice little slice of that down here too. Maybe when I retire...

where are you located Joe, and where do you icefish the most in the state?

Kronenwetter is my favorite WI city/village name. Never fails to put a smile on my face when I say it while we're driving up 51. Question? It's right next to Wausau/Rothschild...how big is Kronenwetter?

That's funny! We say "Kronenwetter" and giggle everytime we pass it. It's my inner juvenile and it helps that I have a couple teenagers that giggle with me.

Population is just over 7500, but it's really a village not a city. It shares the same zip code as the City of Mosinee.

Check out Merrick state park. I have friends that head out from there to fish backwaters, its near fountain city.
Title: Re: check in:Wisconsin members
Post by: addicted to ice fishing on Feb 01, 2018, 05:06 PM
There are a number of sloughs which are not legally accessible because there is not a designated railroad crossing.
If you fish Merrick Park, most of the fishing takes place on grass lake.  However you need to cross a channel to access grass lake along with a couple other sloughs.  Take a spud to check the ice going and coming back. I have not fished it in many years, but if nothing has changed,   you can expect mostly gills, with a  few crappie.  Also was a good spot for bass, northern,  and occasionally walleye.

I was on 3" or so second weekend in Dec. near St. Germain. Not all lakes were ready either. Some kids put a pair of ATVs through on Friday before we went out. Talked with the "recovery crew" at the access Sat. The kids didn't get far but it still wasn't going to be easy out of 10 - 11 FOW.

You know something? People ask me for updates all the time. I have a bunch of customers at Kwik Trip who were customers at GM and thats come up a lot the last couple of months. I've been in contact with a lot of folks who stayed with the company and the tally on this is that they have property, but are still hashing out lease arrangements for the old Baby's R Us on Bluemound. No move in date as of now I've been told.

I started with KT part-time after the GTwn GM closed, and haven't looked back really. Excellent pay, excellent benes and a nice bonus in December.

I'm originally from Green Bay area and your son is right. There is really nothing besides bago and the bay until you get into Oconto or Marinette County or west to Shawano. I like Shawano lake, my uncle used to live on the lake. But there are some hidden gems up past Crivitz, or at least there used to be! I really don't like Bago, not sure why, just never been a big fan.

My daughter and her family live in Fort. I've been on Koshkonong once and never had a reason to return. I'd think that you'd better know where you're going: A.) for safety and B.) to find fish. We did not.

@ foregonefishn: I fished Maple a couple days ago. Seems like any hole I drop a camera into there's fish: pike, sunnies/gills, perch or crappies. Everything runs on the small side but often I'd have two flags up and a pannie coming on the jig rod at the same time. Pretty good place to build some jigging confidence if you don't yet have it. Might be up there during the fishoree, we'll see.

@Otto1: Welcome to the Shanty! Pull up a bucket and make yourself comfortable. Lots of good info and great folks here.

I just picked up an old Clam pre-5600 style model and looking forward to getting on the ice as much as I can.  Hope to run into you out on the ice sometime.

What areas do you usually fish Dave? Fish the bay much? I'm from Suamico originally. Don't get to fish the area as much as I'd like but still get that way a few times each winter to visit family. Tight lines!

Hi guys. Just checking in. I have been busy this past summer.I bought a used 5'x 8' utility trailer and have been doing some work on it. It has a diamond plate metal deck so I put some truck bed liner on it. My son is in the tire business, so he got some bigger tires and rims to give it more load capacity. I am now building some 3/4" plywood sides for it so in the winter all our icefishing gear is protected from the weather on our way to the ice. The last thing I want to do to it is a custom canvas top with snaps to hold it on. It will be sweet. In the summer we can haul our camping gear in it. I am also still fighting my cancer diagnosis. The tumor in my liver is now dead. I have 2 small ones that are being kept in check by a cancer pill called Nexavar. The last 6 months they have not grown at all and hopefully the will die from the medication. If not the doctor said he will go in and remove them. As long as I am still sucking air, thats a good sign.Well as the Wisconsin Moderator I guess I should go and Moderate. Hopefully we will see each other on the ice this winter.

Hi all - I'm new to the forum and wanted to introduce myself. I started ice fishing with a buddy in college and have been cold weather jigging ever since- cant get enough of it. We braved the elements (poor college student at the time and the fact that we're Wisconsinites anyway) but last year I picked up a thermal clam 2seater - living the highlife now! Stumbled upon IceShanty looking for shack/sled mod ideas and was impressed with the ideas and discussions.

Hey All,

I am said "college buddy", I am addicted to ice fishing and cannot wait to learn more from you all. I am currently in Medical School up in Green Bay and hoping to discover some new hardwater spots this winter! Would love any insights if you have experience in the area.

I currently am shack-less but have a small otter/style sled and hand auger so I like to stay fairly mobile and brave the elements with my Flasher.

Thanks for having me!

@Doc_Dev - Welcome to the Shanty! Ditto everything I told your buddy Mocs. So did they put you two in separate halves of the state for a reason? ;) Mom usta separate my brother and me like that...  ::)

Fishing ops in your part of the state are kinda slim save for fishing the Bay and it's tributaries. My son lives a little west in Freedom and does a fair amount of whining about that. We've done Shawano a number of times, Oconto Falls and plied some backwaters and bays off of rivers. All have produced, some better than others. Good to share your location, might make a local pal that can offer an opportunity to tag along  ;D

Good luck this season and keep it dry!

Western Marinette county. 40 miles from Iron Mountain Mi.  10 minutes from Caldron Falls, 15 miles from High Falls.  Anyone been out around here yet?  I know some guys been out, but we have had 21-25 inches of heavy snow since formed.  How thick is the ice around here and northern Oconto and southern Forest county??

Hey Silvercliff! Welcome to the Shanty and thanks for checkin' in  :thumbsup: I've fished High/Cauldron in October for a number of years but missed this year. Just chasin' muskies but I sure do love the scenery!

I've seen someone with your handle, "Silvercliff" somewhere but I can't put my finger on it. Gotta be either Lake-Link or a musky board. I don't spend a ton of time mousing all over the place, pretty easy to find.

Anyway, can't update you on ice conditions there. I know the big snow was not a good thing and some places got away a little more easily.

I went today there was about 8 people out. Ice cracking almost every step but it maybe a layering of ice freeze at night thaw during day thing. One guy had a fish take his shiner and his pole. He made a run for it and then reached into water for it but was slow on the draw.

North of 8 is almost all a decent 3 - 4". I was out yesterday and the top was a little soft but the second whack with a heavy spud was like hittin' a concrete sidewalk. By the end of next week ought be a good 8 - 10 almost every where except the deepest latest freezers.

Ice seemed ok at 3-4", getting soft when I left. Not many other options in the Madison area, people falling through on Wingra and Monona bay. I will give it a rest until next weekend.

We will adopt you for scratching the itch.  I hope your plan is to get at least halfway north of the border, because the southern 1/3 is iffy on some lakes, and the heavy snow coming tonight wont help anything.  Less snow and better ice starting around HWY 10 and north.  Headed to Vilas county tomorrow for my fix.

Hey!

I'm back....i'm sure you all missed me! (and my 4 posts)

Living Up North now, just south of Rhinelander, after fleeing Green Bay and the insanity it is becoming.
Not sure i moved far enough north, might move again, to Da U.P. eh.

I saw your ice report int he other thread.  Appreciate it.  You're probably only 15 miles away being in Harrison.

Hello everyone. I'm new to Wisconsin.  Well I moved to Marinette in February this year from Wyoming.  Gonna get my first wisconsin ice fishing in starting Thursday when I get off work .  Not sure where yet but I'm hoping to find some crappie, perch, and walleye. The more i try to research places to go the more confused I get. Looks like some decent fishing in alot of places.

I have a cabin in Land O Lakes. Drove over to Misery Bay on Sunday and man, the ice is coming fast.

Have you been out on the ice at all? I've only had a few Northern and one nice LMB
