We have had a couple of icy mornings but river is wide open as of 6:30 AM Wed. Was out Sun. & Mon. and surface temp. was 34-36 depending on time of day. Had good sun yesterday and it even thawed the bays some. Forecast is for highs of 40 for a couple of days. But the lows that are in the 10's & lower 20's could skim the river anytime.

The bite on Sun. & Mon. was off a bit. Fish were hiting strong with only a couple tail-suckers but still caught most on the stinger hook. They seem to want a very steady presentation. Drop to the bottom, lift 2" and hold..... drop to bottom, lift 2" and hold... Shouldn't be a problem doing a 20-30 fish day if your decent with a jig.

Afraid you're on your own from here. Gotta go meet my new grand-daughter. Sure it will be hard water by my return and that's OK to. Change gear and keep fishin!!!!!!!

Thanks Boar. She's 2 months now & suprised that "Grandma" didn't show you pictures when you were here!

River has light skim this morning but is moving and opening up as we speak. Forecast is for 50 on Sun! I may have to re-rig the boat when we get back.

      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.
