Congratulations 20,000 Unique Users

View of Lake Winnebago this fall day of October 12, 2020.

We have recorded 20,000 unique users of the website this fall since we started our new website on January 24, 2020. Our Google Analytics shows that we have hit 20.000 users today. Each week we add new users who also register to control the cameras. The word is getting out about the cameras being on Lake Winnebago overlooking different areas of it. People login to see the beautiful sunrises and sunsets.  Our picture history is being used to go back and see the sunrises and sunsets during different days.

Most of the boats have left the harbors and are back in storage for the winter till next season. If you are interested in boating some boats are up for sale, there are slips open for the next sailing and boating season in 2921.

Sailboarding is coming to an end as well for the winter is coming and ice up will be here for the winter sports to take place out on the ice.

When the ice forms on the lake it’s the most watched time for the cameras in the past.

A new tab was added to the menu bar it is WEATHER. Under it is the link to the Windpower Weather Center also the live radar for the local TV stations. So now you can look at the cameras, see the weather forecasts and look at the live radar to see the conditions of Lake Winnebago. Have fun on the lake and be safe while enjoying the water.

The Wind Power Weather Center now has 7 sensors on Lake Winnebago and 1 on Lake Poygan. It is on this site under the cameras buttons. The last sensor added is at High Cliff Marina. Thanks to those who have installed them. More news can be seen at Wind Power Weather Center.

It has been a big year for the Weather Center! Going multi-sensor with our new Tempest weather sensors and new home page map. It has been a lot of work and hopefully you like the changes.

If you don’t get the Forecast & Windsock Alerts, please sign-up! You get a daily forecast email showing Noaa forecast with windsock rating and recommended launches. At a glance you can see what days might be sailable so you can adjust your schedule to get out and sail! Plus you get Windsock Alerts, per sensor, when it is windy. We think the Alerts are awesome and encourage you to get them.

Congratulations 15,000 Unique Users!!!

15,000 viewers a new high.

Since January 24, 2020 when we have launched our new website at FoxRVierSystemWebcams.com the viewership has exploded. Our Google Analytics shows that we have hit 15,000 users today. Each week we add approximately 560 new users per week. The word is getting out about the cameras being on Lake Winnebago overlooking different areas of it. People login to see the beautiful sunrises and sunsets.  Our picture history is being used to go back and see the sunrises during different days.

The cameras have loops built into them and move in approximately an eight minute cycle. This summer it has been trying for the weather and bad luck have taken out the cameras ability to function. The public can go to account, register and login to control the cameras for five minutes and see what they would like to see. It is a learning curve in that the first few attempts at moving the cameras to see where they go.

 To increase viewership we post on other blogs and Facebook and Instagram pages. We have been on WBAY Channel 2 during the weather broadcast with a live image. We are looking to be in Future Neenah Magazine which features Neenah businesses and information about the community.  We have been in Neenah Notes a magazine produced by the city of Neenah.

A big thanks goes out to the person who has put in so much time to make this a big success.  The Wind Power Weather Center has three operating weather sensors on the lake now:  Wind Power– Fond du Lac, Mansur Bay– Neenah and Brighton Beach– Menasha.  You can see the Current Conditions, History, Forecast, Highs & Lows, Weather Calendar and Windsock Sessions. The graphs and charts are the current weather on that area of the lake. They intend to install more sensors on the lake but this takes money, you can donate to their project buy following their donate button on their pages.

And thanks for viewing the website and returning every so often to view the cameras, Thank You.

It’s Hot Outside

It is hot outside.
It is hot outside.

Another day with hot weather it’s hard on the routers causing them to shut down and the cameras to stop working.

Some hot weather precautions to reduce the risk of heat exhaustion and heat stroke:

Stay indoors and in an air-conditioned environment as much as possible unless you’re sure your body has a high tolerance for heat.

Drink plenty of fluids but avoid beverages that contain alcohol, caffeine or a lot of sugar.

Eat more frequently but make sure meals are balanced and light.

Never leave any person or pet in a parked vehicle.

Wear Appropriate Clothing: Choose lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing.

Schedule Outdoor Activities Carefully: Try to limit your outdoor activity to when it’s coolest.

Pace Yourself: Cut down on exercise during the heat.

Lake Winnebago Sunday afternoon.

It’s a beautiful time to go sailing and boating. The fishermen are out early in the morning on the lake. Enjoy the outdoors for the weather is very nice out.

The Midwest’s  fishing tournament and the family & fishing event of the year! Battle on Bago 2020 was a great success for it was held on Lake Winnebago on the 20th and the 21st this month of June 2020. There were 750 entrants in the fishing contest with the first place prize went to team #3 Joe Pausha and Eric Palmquist with a two day total weight of fish at 30.610lbs. There were 375 team boat entries in the tournament with top prize at $20,000.

In 2007 members the Oshkosh Southwest Rotary came together to create this trademark event after seeing the growing issue of youths being stuck behind a television or computer screen. They decided to rally the community to help fund efforts to get youths up, outdoors and involved in local conservation efforts. Since its inception, Battle on Bago has raised close to $500,000 and given it back to the community. Thanks to the community and sponsors of the event.

Battle on Bago is not just for people whom love to fish. Join the party in at Miller’s Bay for great food and drinks, live music and amazing raffle prizes each night. The annual fishing tournament features more than $275,000 worth of prizes, and with how the Battle on Bago is set up on how you can win prizes, everyone has a chance to go home a winner. Be sure to keep an eye out for the next Battle on Bago tournament coming this February which is the winter edition of this event that features ice fishing!
