It has begun....
Early reports from the dells have fish biting in the open water stretches. Lots of ice flows are reported, but guys are out.
I have no solid data on open water access on the Rock River, but the warm temps and rain have busted up some of the areas below the dams. A few anglers are reporting some success fishing from shore.
The Milwaukee harbor area is also open. I'll be checking with some sources, but I saw boats out there this morning when I was down on the southside of Milwaukee.
I'll be prepping the boat this weekend. If you have to stratch the open water itch, we can get out on weather permitting days starting next week. Give me a call.
