***Eagle River, Wis. (VILAS COUNTY) -- as of March 11, 2013:

 Crappies, bluegills and perch providing good to excellent action in
the Eagle River, Wisconsin area.

Ice thickness in the Eagle River ranges from about  22 to 24 inches.  As the
weather warms, the ice will begin a faster thinning pace, especially around
any structure or current areas.  Caution is strongly advised.  The ice may
look good, but it can very dangerous.  Travel conditions are marginal with
slush and snow cover. Stick to worn paths. Unfished areas can result in
getting stuck, as well as unknown ice conditions.  ATV's, four-wheelers,
snowmobiles and motor vehicles are all being used.

Crappies, bluegills and perch are providing good to excellent action with an
all date bite, in the Eagle River area.  There are two areas to fish.
First- - deeper water: 12-30 feet off of break edges and on adjacent
mudflats.  Second - -a shallow water bite:  12 feet of water or less along
old weed edges.  The perch will be tight to bottom, with the crappies and
gills suspending up and down the water column, location being day dependent.
Use your electronics to locate the depth of the fish on any given day.  As
the weather warms and we move towards spring, the crappies and bluegills
will be migrating higher up in the water column, where the thinning/melting
ice, and sun provide more oxygenated and warmer water.  As this time, the
crappies and gills are just starting to move a bit higher.  Later on in the
season you will be able to find these fish right under the ice at the
surface.  Still a little early for that, right now.
