Happy New Year and A Quick Ice Update

New Years Greetings and Quick Ice Report

Ice Report

We have been out on the ice all over the midwest. Conditions vary however so make sure you check local conditions before driving on ice. With very cold weather lately, most all lakes will be safe but remember to avoid any areas that may have current. The bluegill bite has been a little slow but patience will help get you some fish. Low water levels n many area lakes may also afect your favorite holes. Use your electronics and be willing to move around a little bit and ou sould be able to relocate the fish. Norherns are still eating sucker minnows and big shiners. Set up a few  tip ups while searching for active pan fish.

 

Tonka Gills

Will and I have been out on tonka a few times. As you can see Will enjoyed a friends big wheel house and was happy to reel up a few sunnies. He spent plenty of time abusing our minnows as well.

The Tip Ups were active and we brought home one 23" northern. Stay tuned for a video I shot on how to clean a Northern without Y bones.

Little Bay de Noc Perch

I took a trip over to the UP of Michigan and spent a few days chasing perch out of Lindbergh Cove Resort. Lack of snow cover and a large pressure crack close to shore made getting my dads 2 man permanent shack where we wanted it a little challenging. Once we got setup though we started catching perch. We setup not more than a quarter mile from the resort on a sand flat in about 14 feet of water. The ones we caught were not jumbos but the action was steady and the ones we kept tasted awfully good. Wigglers probably produced the most bites.
