    Cool May 1st ICE Condition Update

    Well guys were getting closer to opening day and were going to be cutting it razor-thin on any ice out. All hope is not lost, though. In my travels throughout the area Ive seen several lakes that are very close all it would take would be some wind and we could see these lakes open up. As of right now, though, all we have are some rivers. You have to go down as far as Tomahawk to find open water of any kind. Up here in Boulder Junction were pretty socked in. The two lakes that Ive seen that have the best chance of opening are Upper Gresham and Little Crooked. If youre coming up to the Boulder area to fish, be prepared to travel as the lakes that Ive seen that could get open are scattered all over the place one here, one there. There are going to be some good bank fishing spots come opener and those big, deep, clear lakes are going to be quite a while yet. The latest Ive seen Trout Lakes ice go out was May 18 in 1996 and this year could rival that that baby is still white. I will continue to be moving around the area and will try to post more before the opener but Im set and ready to go and my customers and I WILL be on open water Saturday morning!

    Thats it for now. Talk to you soon.

    Hi Folks
    Hope is waning fast. We got exactly the weather we did not want. Its snowing and the temp is 26 and falling. I do not expect any open water throughout the Boulder Jct,Winchester,Manitowish Waters and Presque Isle Areas. Minocqua and St Germain areas are also in bad shape.Some of the big waters like Trout may not be open by Mothers Day weekend. Tomahawk area is the closest open body of water I found other than the rivers.I am still watching 2 or 3 puddle lakes that have a slight chance.good luck Jeff

    Jeff:

    During my trip to Three Lakes last night, I observed that Watersmeet on the E.R. Chain was open and the north half of Rangeline was open. Also, the south third of Mid Lake was open on the Minocqua Chain.
