Mid-January Ice Fishing Report for the Lower Wisconsin River

Capt. John Bomkamp

On the ice a couple of days last week.  Fishing is still rather slow, but catching a few each day.  Have to work for them, moving around till you land on some.  Marking lots of fish on our electronics, but getting them to bite is another thing! Mark and his grandson Nolan iced a couple of nice bluegills. I caught a sucker, think it is the first time I’ve ever caught one through the ice! Pretty good battle on a light ice fishing pole with 3 pound line! Be careful when going onto the ice. Some of the shorelines are bad due to warmer temps and fluctuating river levels.

Thanks for reading my reports and good fishing!
