Paul Nelson fishing column for March 26: Ice fishing down to its last few days
The ice fishing season is likely down to its' last few days on most lakes. The ice on some lakes is already too thin and unstable for anglers to access safely, even on foot.
There can be a couple weeks in variance between the first and last lakes in the area to be ice free. Shallow lakes and shallow bays of larger lakes can open up much sooner than the main basin of deep lakes.
