We have been enjoying the mild temps the past few days and it sounds like we are going to get more. It is a great time to get out and do some fishing!
The best presentation has been glow green, pink and gold 1/8-1/4 oz. jigs tipped with a minnow or minnow head in 24’-32’ of water. Anglers have been reeling in a mix of eater size and throwback size walleyes, saugers, and occasional eelpout, white fish and a trophy walleye. On average, a few days of fishing is getting anglers a nice limit. We have over 2’ of ice in the areas we fish and travel right now and we received a fresh blanket of snow last weekend. Conditions are good.

A mix of Walleyes & Saugers
Anglers reeled in a mix of walleyes and saugers this week along with a few pike. Plain hooks, buck shots, chubby darters as well as 1/8-1/4 oz jigs tipped with either a full or minnow head in 23–30’ of water has been working just few inches off bottom. Gold and pink have been popular colors. Electronic users can’t say enough about how helpful they are in increasing their catch rate.
The ice road is open to vehicles from Young’s Bay to Oak Island. Conditions are good.
