Early December Ice

15 posts in this topic

Is there any locations on the south shore that you can walk out and get into some good Ice fishing? I don't have an atv or a snow mobile only a 3/4 ton pick-up that I assume I shouldn't drive out on the ice until late December early January. Any suggestions would be great!

It's not far to walk out from Morris Point Resort to the

fishing grounds. If you call your favorite resort I bet

they will haul you out on their trailers for early ice

fishing. Call River Bend, Zipple Bay, Adrians. If you

stay at the resort the odds go up.

I am hoping to make the second week of Dec. It is kind of a tradition for me to make my first ice trip that weekend. But I might be heading another direction. But the second week of Dec. always seems to be pretty good but typically you are limited to ATV or sled.

I doubt I need to ask but I would imagen you will be around that weekend Curt won't you?

We were on it the second weekend last year with ATV's some guys were out by the first weekend. But this year has been much warmer so far than last year. It is a year to year deal. But I typically make my first trip the second weekend of Nov. so far that has been a pretty safe bet for me.

Sheees Iff we don't want ice the second week of November do we??? Heck no in the boat we go! This cold snap is gonna bring a fresh flush of BIG fish into the river and the jiggin the next coupla weeks will be stellar. Now if only a guy can keep those pesky 17 and 18 inchers off the hook them big girls will have a 1\2 a chance to bite!

Ice can hold off till Turkey day anyhow! Till then Jig Jig Jig!

Troll on over for a day or 2 IFF and practice jiggin with me for the up and coming winter ice jigging games!!! Heck you could even use 1 of your Thorne Bros ice rods iffin you wanted!!!

Man I would like to come over and hit the river Fisky but just too much going on right now. I am busy chasing the other kind of white tail for the next few weeks. Between that and work there just isn't enough time. It stinks. Wish I didn't live 4 hours away.

The thornes are ready for action that is for sure.

For years we used to go ice fishing the day after Thanksgiving out of Zipple Bay. I haven't been able to do that for about 4 years now. Dang weather. The 10 day forecast says it shouldn't get much higher than 32 so that should make some ice.

We need the winds to drop below 40 miles an hour too before it will make anything.

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).

      Raining hard up there too JI'm?  Been raining here all day with a couple thunderstorms rolling through to boot.  Hope to still find some good ice up north before it's over.
