ICE FISHING IN NORTHERN WISCONSIN
ICE FISHING IN NORTHERN WISCONSIN? Depends: It's iffy, at best. George Langley at Eagle River Sports said, ''Not a chance. The warm spell reduced everything to skim ice.'' Minocqua guide Kurt Justice said, ''Looks as though we won't be getting safe ice this week. With small lakes skimming up in areas, we are very close, but we need daytime temps to stay below freezing for a couple of days with no wind.'' However, in Hayward, Pastika's Sports reported, ''By the end of week, there is a possibility. There's ice on the back of bays. It will be real close.'' If you're up north for deer or the holidays, there's a chance. Otherwise, I would call before driving up for first ice.
