Does anyone have a report on the ice condition for the grade? Looking to head out in the morning.

doesnt the river run through there? if so that would make for ice being unsafe too. here the rock river runs through lake Kosh and in those area it can be a alot thinner than most. I know some of you are die hard ice fisherman but dont put others at risk by jumping the gun remember others have to come get you and that put them at risk think of your family and the people who would be affected if yea went through and never came back. its getting cold and is going to be this way for a while just give it some time and be safe.. Not trying to start anything here either just saying.

TEX - I can see at looking back that what I wrote could be very misleading. I wasn't aware that anyone went through and I am definitely a proponent of staying safe... I would not be out there yet (should have said that)! 2" is not enough for me because it could be a 1/2 inch five feet from a 2" spot, and snow on top makes it even more deceptive. Thank you for putting that in perspective. Safety ALWAYS first.

KATfishing, that is miss leading info on the amount of tipup~s at the grade. There were three people out fishing and someone ended up going getting their feet wet and a whole lot more. It is still early ice and lots of open spots out there. The snow cover will not help. Be careful out there if you deceide to go and good fishing.

I launched out of Sauk county park- ice free. Had to brake ice once I past Wiegands Bay. Ice only 1/2 inch thick at most except where other boats had pushed through and stacked the ice- then it was a bit thicker. I fished until 4 and quite a bit of ice was gone that I had to push through in the morning. we managed 3 slot fish, all 21", 2 shorts, and one 17" keeper sauger. All on jig and moxies. Missed a few others as well. I am fairly certain that that was the last trip to Lake Wisconsin for this year unless we miraclously get some warm weather.

We launched this morning out of sunset bay just after they pulled the pier. The ice was about an inch thick however we were able to travel where other boats had previously gone so it wasn't so hard getting out about 3/4 of the way to the tressel. However coming back in was difficult because the ice was getting much thicker I would say almost an inch and a half and it started to refreeze. We did lose two walleyes while we're out there and I did get one 25 inch fish. Needless to say it was very cold out there today and sucked to only be able to fish around the tressel. Guy that I talked to that was pulling the piers told me that the lake literally locked up over night. Oh well looks like the boat will more than likely be parked for the year very soon!

checked the ice at Sunset Bar, 1" as of this AM, glad I didnt pull the boat up. 3 trucks/trailers at the Sunset launch (pier has been pulled), looked like they were breaking ice as far out as I could see.

with the forecast, the lake is done for open water this year

Good news... they made it back safely to the launch. Still some open water below the tressel. Manke is still trying to pull docks out it looks like. I think this ice is a little sooner than expected for most. Someone threw some boulders on to the ice at the launch in Okee and they didn't go thru the ice. There may be be a solid inch plus already.

I was still hoping to get the boat out there... all I can say now is better them than me. There's a lesson in there somewhere about not pulling the boat at night.

Looks like some fellas from Illinois pushed the fishing and stayed over night at the hotel with their boats in. They are using spuds to break the ice. Long way to go back to the launch.They have been working at it for about a hour and have went a hundred yards or so. Lake is locked down pretty thick it looks like.
