Temps in the 40s with less than 2 weeks until the 2012 sturgeon spearing season

February 1, 2012

WI ForecastOne and a half weeks to go before the 2012 sturgeon spearing season!  I’m sure you’ve all been watching the weather closely like I have and noticed the unusually high temps expected for the rest of the week (above).  Crazy weather this year!  I normally wouldn’t complain about warm weather, but we need some cooler temps to thicken the ice before spearing!

Check out a few recent stories on local news channels about the ice on Lake Winnebago:

Please, please be safe out on the ice and do your research before going anywhere!
