Any Safe ice In Southern Wisconsin?

Recommended Posts

Guest

I live in Northern Illinois. How far into Wisconsin do I have to go to find safe ice right now?

tvman: Welcome with a capital W.

I live along Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin. There's no safe ice in lakes right along the lake. I've gotten scattered reports of ice 2 inches or a bit thicker on a few small northern lakes inland from the big lake, and a couple reports of ice 3 to 4 inches in the Minnesota arrowhead, but most of us are waiting on colder weather, which is coming tonight. Likely, there'll be guys out on foot in some force up here on Saturday and Sunday, but we'll be cautious, and will bring spud bars and ice spikes!

Bottom line: There's very little safe ice way up here in the north, but it's only a day or two away. I'd be WAY suspicious and careful of ice in southern Wis.

Anybody else further south have a report?

I'm at school in Stevens Point, and there's maybe a half inch from what I heard from one of my friends today. Still a little ways off, which is a good thing since I gotta go hunting first.

Here in Madison we have no ice. I'm still catching walleyes from shore at night on Lake Mendota. I can't wait for the ice though!

Nothing around the Janesville area. Even the small ponds and such have opened up again.

    • Did well fishing today. Pitching jigs to the rocks in town produced fish. Also headed north up river and picked up some fish there. Released the females and kept a 2 man limit of males.  Couldn’t have asked for a better day of weather to be on the water.    
    • No pictures tonight because my phone was on the charger but I made no flip, smoked, hamburgers like this. ....   https://grillagrills.com/recipes/no-flip-burger-recipe/
    • Pfunk, I can take one of those jakes out for you! Slow first day for me, just one gobbling at the thunder.
    • You don't need one of those, they're overpriced anyway. Any smoker will do.
    • Thanks Dave. Sure wish I had one of them expensive fancy pellet grills.
    • yep sucker em with gobble call or gobbler yelps on a diaphragm ,they fit nicely in a deep fryer !
    • Man what a frustrating day. Had a pair of jakes that decided to spend their day in our vicinity and they ran off a pair of toms that were cutting across the plowing headed for us this morning, then this evening we were pretty confident the nicest tom we saw today would be headed past us to get back to the roost and sure enough... he followed the script. As I was readying the gun on him those 2 jakes decide to come out of the woods, he sees them, and dumps into the ravine with them chasing behind.    EDIT: Now 3 times they have run one off. That tom just made another attempt to sneak his way in and they ran him off again. Never wanted to shoot a jake as bad as I want these two gone.
    • O i know they can be.  I have a good CO and fire detector.  I had one in my last house and it worked good.  I dont plan on doing much sleeping in it maybe a few times a winter.  
    • It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests.   I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours.    I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour.    Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.
