The slush is almost gone. -11° last night set things up pretty well. Might wanna watch where you’re going and your speed. Anywhere that slush piled up from traffic or attempts to plow roads is rock hard and like hitting a wall. A wind blown drifted bay makes these obstructions difficult to see. Very few anglers set out today. Fishing…

If you’re looking to test your gear on the hard water nows the time. Pretty slushy under about 8” of powder. Travel along the west side of the upper bay has a lot of slush compared to the east. Snowmobiles and ATV’s struggled to make their way in some spots without getting stuck. Watch where you stop. Starting again might…

It started Thursday night around 7 o’clock pm when this fish was brought in to be weighed. Just shy of 8lbs. Way to go! Certainly not as many anglers venturing out this Friday as last. 8 inches of fresh snow and a bunch of slush made for messy travel around the bay. Maybe the snow cover and the lack of…

I know I had a lot of anglers in getting bait for in the overnight and in morning. 12” of ice or more on the upper bay. Continue to use caution. All this wet…

These guys were avid ice anglers that fished hard for uncooperative fish. It did pay off though, with this big Smallie rather than their targeted…

What a day on the bay! Clear sky’s and brilliant sunshine. The walleye bite was good for some this morning and then by most accounts shut right down well before noon. Hard to say with very few anglers out there compared to the weekend. Looking for some solitude on the bay? Try during the week. Jim did and look what…

Today was a good day of fishing on Little Bay de Noc, if you could get bait. The busy weekend put a strain on the live bait supply at all bait shops in the area. R.J. Hilger and Sons will be rolling in with a fresh supply Tuesday morning. Despite yesterday’s slow down, walleye and perch were active this morning…
