It may be the third week in April but ice built up in the bay of Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay is not going away anytime soon. Due to last weekend’s strong northeast winds, the ice has shifted to southern Green Bay, according to the US National Weather Service. The unusually cold and snowy climate this month has left many outdoor enthusiasts waiting for the true transition of seasons. On the Lake Michigan side, a Brown Trout tournament in Kewaunee was canceled two weeks ago due to bad weather conditions. Baileys Harbor’s 30th annual Brown Trout Tournament started this Thursday and is going on as planned through the weekend. You can see a satellite image by the US National Weather Service in Green Bay with this story online that shows the entire state of Wisconsin still under a blanket of snow as of Thursday afternoon.
