    Continued warm weather (for late Nov/early Dec) and wind has been keeping ice anglers at bay waiting for things to get safe.  An example:  the Bay of Minocqua, across from the shop, has now froze over…and opened up, for the 5th time this season.

    Weather just can’t make up its mind.  Temps keep dipping above and below the freezing mark making things difficult for both ice and open water anglers to figure out what to do. Musky anglers still heading out (Season open thru Thursday 11/30) but not a lot of success.  Some landings either froze in or too slippery to launch, b...
