Went to check out conditions yesterday. Found Freddies parking lot blocked off with
barricades and plenty of signage stating 'NO PARKING'. That goes for the subdivision
there also. Don't get towed or ticketed. That's my advice. FYI, ice was 1.5 inches but
this minor warm spell isn't going to help. Wait is on for safe ice. Don't be anxious, be safe.

that's why I like fishing in Wisconsin.........

Bars there mostly encourage parking around if they have it figuring that you'll likely come in and have a drink or bowl of chili to show your support and appreciation. After all winter is not the busy time for most places........

but I guess more restricted access is what the chain o' elite needs

Famous Freddies is closed until May 2020. I didn't post that. I'm sure the lot is closed due to insurance liability issues.
We're also going to miss out on fishing the docks from shore in the spring. I don't blame Freddies. It's that
c-y-a and law suite mentality kind of world we live in.

I wouldn't park there if you could!!! The ice along the seawall there is always SKETCHY!!! Theres times when the ice in the channel is 6 inches and over there its open water. I don't have an issue over in that area as I have private access with off street parking.

Haven't been out since Nov 15th when we went to check out the ice after that early cold spell.
Waiting on some safe ice reports. Predicted warm up isn't going to help. Stay safe, it's not worth it.

I'm not sure....health issues kind of make it hard. I can't be out in the cold that long...like 10 minutes. So just enough time with some help to drill holes and set up a shack with a short walk only. Thats my limitations. T channels would work because I could go back to the car and warm up after I drilled and set up. Still working on figuring a way to do it' maybe a scarf might do the trick. At least there its not a big deal to just call it a day if it didn't work out. I can meet you there some time. I have a day off during the week.. one week Tuesday...one week Thursday.

We were at diamond lake...with that long trek across the ice. There was some snow drifts and I think that wasn't too long after you had some health issues. Then we went to Bills pizza. Thats sound right to you?

I remember that and another time we pulled the sleds between some houses to get on the T channel. Getting old. Memory slips.

You must have been with somebody else that time. I never did that...I've had private parking and access there for over 35 years. Or it was at a different spot!!!
