Winnebago Ice

Recommended Posts

Winnebago just refroze the Tuesday night and is still not safe. Temps are supposed to remain cold through the weekend and night-time temps are forecast well below freezing all of next week. I'd say by x-mas there will certainly be some parts of 'Bago that will be fishable.

Spike,
You must get over to the Fox Valley pretty often, or you just moved. What gives? I also see you are in education....funny, me too!

I just moved here in August. I can see the lake from my kitchen window (well, just a channel). Unfortunately, I'll be back in MN for the holidays, otherwise it would be cool to go fishing with you (actually it's not all that unfortunate because I have plenty of fishing scheduled into my trip).

Yep, I'm on the faculty at UW-Oshkosh.

How's the ice coming on the lake?

Any reports?
I'm coming for the holiday season and my Wisconsin fishing license is burning a hole in my pocket!

Spike,

What do you teach at UW Oshkosh?
We are planning on moving to the area this summer and was thinking of starting my masters in admin there? Might have to chat sometime about the school and program.

Try to keep me updated on ice conditions.
Thanks

Guess it just dawned on me that you could teach anything....I was making a rather large assumption.

hammer 'em,

The ice is setting up. There were quite a few people fishing the bays between Oshkosh and Neenah this weekend. Even a few brave (foolish?) ATVs out. There are some big cracks and heaves not too far out and I didn't see anyone venturing out too far. Word has it that ice on Butte Des Mortes is better, but the reports haven't been to good. I hope to get out today or tomorrow, but we're packing to head back to MN for 11 days so I don't know if I'll have time.

I teach in the Communication Department. Feel free to e-mail me if you want some info on the school, [email protected]

Checking a few other sites for reports, It doesn't sound like the fish are doing much on Bago yet. I hope to try it this year ice fishing if I hear any good reports, if not, I'll give it a shot this spring. A fellow I once knew a few years back, who's from Winneconne told me that the catfishing is good on Bago, flathead and channel cats. Has anyone ever fished or caught catfish here? I was thinking, catfish might be a good alternative in case the walleye aren't biting. I've been hearing talk of ice fishing catfish, it sounds like fun!

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
