Hey guys, I'm looking to head out of Vinnie Haha this weekend. It's my first time on the lake. Not looking for any secret spots or anything but wouldn't mind some useful advice if anyone would be so kind as sharing. Just looking for a general location to start targeting eyes. Thanks in advance! Smile

Yes you can park there and walk out! You might have to hoof it 1/2 to 3/4 a mile to get out to decent water. But it's accesable. North Shore drive is another good spot to go from!

Hi New to the lake, I'm seeking a place to park and walk on with a sled. I have a sportman's map book. I see a boat landing by Charlie Bluff And Gilbert's Bay. Can I park there? Any parking fees? Or can someone please direct to another parking area. Thanks for any help!

Man Nauga, you've got this system dialed in. You have got to let me fish with you sometime. Spring is right around the corner and I look forward to you, Bola and Broadwys posts. When I see your post then I know my favorite is around the corner from that. Salmos on Boards. Peace, Larry Dobson Big Smile Cool Big Smile

Ice Depth: 10" Conditions: Night Time Air Temp: 31° - 35° F
Saw full size trucks driving on the west side of the lake. Ice was around 10" where I measured

I had no problem with my atv, my ice shanty had no problem and it weighs in at 1500 lbs. But with the fractures that I seen I didn't want to chance it with my truck. You will have to use your judgement. Better safe than sorry. Tight lines!

I pulled my shanty off the lake this morning with my atv. On the west side of the lake under my shanty was a good 10" of ice but I did see quiet a few fractures. One with water flowing through it. A couple of spots from the truck traffic on it looked pretty thin. With temps in the low 40's this weekend take caution. I did see a pickup truck out there but I left mine on shore. Tight lines!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this reservoir, the Koshkonong has a flood-drawdown cycle where you have relatively large changes in depth. The Corp of Engineers, USGS, and WI DNR monitor and control the level of the lake. If you like to analyse data you can peruse this web page to see current and historical data an the lake. http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=mkx&gage=nvlw3 During normal summer levels you can find 7' of water in the western basin and the channel west of the Carcijou to Theibeau point line. During floods, the lake can have 10' of water in that area and in 2008 there could have been up to 14' or more water (if you could get on the lake and didn't mind slow-no-wake speeds and dodging submerged logs/debris to get out to the lake as most landings were well under water at those historic levels. The lake has been drawn down to near historic levels in the last few years leaving little water for fishing in. As for lake access, you will need to walk a good distance to deeper water if you don't have a lake property owner willing to let you park and access the lake from their property. After all, it is one of the largest lakes/reservoirs in the state. It also is a mostly featureless shallow basin with nomadic fish. This lake is a fantastic fishery and someone is always catching fish. But it requires a lot of luck or work to locate the fish and even the best can get skunked on any given day. Good luck

9" of ice? Where abouts on the lake did you take your measurement?
