ICE REPORT

28 Jan

As of January,28, 2012. We flew over Lake Winnebago on the 27th and found the whole lake was froze over. There were many cracks running east and west more than normal.Some of the cracks were 2 to 4ft wide. We could see were the ice froze last.After we landed we went out on the lake with 4 wheelers to check were it froze last. There is only 4 to 6 inches on those areas. there are many of those areas on the lake. On the west shore the area is from Stoney beach in Oshkosh and goes along the shore out about 200 yds and anywhere from 100 to 300 yds wide all the way to Neenah. There are areas out in front of Wendts, Stockbridge,Quinny, Brothertown and Calument. These areas are very dangerous.The rest of the lake has 8 to 12 inches. I recommend foot travel only at this time.Now the bays of Lake Winnebago ,Lake Poygan ,Lake Buttes Morts have 10 to 13 inches many fisherman are traveling with atv’s and snowmobile. There are also many venturing out with vehicles check with your local fishing clubs and bait shops on where to go on these lakes.and bays.HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND BE SAFE
