What are the ice conditions in northern MI, WI, and the upper? Normally we fish the Mississippi waters south of Lacrosse before Christmas, but I'm betting the rain this week will open most of that back up.

This is the first year, everything is ready and working. -Sled, plow, salter, snowblower, 6 pallets of salt, and all of the ice fishing gear prepped.... For what? 50 and rain!
