Opening Weekend.... Ice Out ?
The official Wisconsin fishing opener for Walleye, Pike and catch and release Bass is this weekend! We are seeing new lakes opening up daily as ice is leaving most small to mid sized lakes in the Minocqua area. My best guess would say that some of the larger lakes such as Trout, Tomahawk and Fence would probably have significant ice in some areas for opening weekend. Lake Katherine was 90 percent ice free on Monday April 29th....... just an example.
We've been enjoying good Walleye and Perch fishing on the Wisconsin River from Tomahawk to Wausau in my boat since March 16th and I'm looking forward to getting the boat on the water a little closer to home!
Good luck and tight lines!
