ICE CONDITIONS

6 Mar

This is probably my last report for the year. We were out today getting a ice shanty and the conditions out there on the ice is very dangerous. There  is a 40 ft wide crack from Waukau Ave on the west shore all the way to Neenah. There are some fisherman walking out by Fisk Ave.But use extreme caution the conditions are going to deterorate quickly with the warmer weather coming.I hope this web site helped a few of you this year. This was our first year. next year were going to be a little more detailed maybe even pictures. Have a safe year and good luck fishing.

As of today Otter Street removed the ATV bridges.  The Fox River has opened up all the way to Waugoo and approximately another mile out from the mouth of the river.  I recommend that everyone stay off the ice for the remainder of the season.  If you do decide to venture out use extreme caution!!! There are a lot of sturgeon holes out there and not all have been marked.  Same goes for the upper river lakes…stay off if you don’t know the ice.

Remember the ice is never 100% safe!

UPDATE…Do Not attempt to cross the crack off Merritt.  The crack has opened up to a 40′ width.
