Questions????

Recommended Posts

I will be coming out to the Appleton area next week for work. I will be there for six weeks. Have a ton of questions, don't want to see my ice season end just yet.

1. How much is an out of state license?

2. What are ice conditions like around Appleton?

3. Are there any good Walleye or Crappie lakes in the area?

I have never even been in that area before so any answers would be greatly appreciated.

Pwaldow:

Can only answer your license question, not knowing anything about Appleton.

Nonresident individual season: $34
Nonresident 4-day individual: $15
Nonresident 15-day individual: $20
Annual inland trout stamp (resident and non-resident): $7.25

No shelter license is needed for ice fishing. No name and address are required on the shelter, either.

Good luck!

Anyone else help out Pwaldow on specific Appleton area info?

I was born and raised in Wi(Hayward area). I now live in the cities. I have fished on Lake Poygan/Lake Winneconne.Its in Waushara and Winnebago Counties. Its a shallow lake with little structure. Its over 14,000 acres. with a max depth of 12ft. I suggest getting a fishing hotspots map of it.I have one if you would like to borrow it.
Another lake to consider is Lake Winnebago. Its alot like Mille lacs. Very large and fairly shallow. Im sure there are alot of other lakes in the area as well. Good luck.

P.S. This is Jim. The guy you were going to help with the garmin 12 gps. I hope this helps you out. If you have anymore questions you can e-mail me at: [email protected]

Hey Paul, you better watch out. After spending that much time in WI, you may be called a cheesehead when you get back. I lived in the Appleton area for a few years and know the area. I sill make it out that way a few times each year. Are you leaving next week for sure, and are you going to be gone for six weeks or longer? The reason I am asking is because the end of March and the begining of April can produce some awesome open water walleye fishing in the rivers. I can talk to some friends and get you some current information. Better yet, get me a job out there and I can show you around myself. wink.gif

Adam,

There's no way that I will ever be called a cheesehead grin.gif. Sounds like I may want to stay a while longer to get in some good fsihing, but that's not possible.

Doesn't anyone that frequents this board have any info on Lake Winebago???????????

Door County is only an hour or two away. Egg Harbor is one of my favorite destinations. If Nothing there then to Dykesville. Egg Harbor for jumbo perch, Brown Trout and Northern Pike. Don't need to get to far from shore and there is just something cool about fishing on Lake Michigan. Worth it for a stop at Al Johnsons as well. Have their Sweedish Pancakes. Make sure that the ice is good before you go out.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
