Have never fished lake superior or any of the great lakes before. Going up to Ashland for the Battle on Bay tournament through our high school this weekend and looking for any tips/tricks/techniques or locations where we have the chance of winning. Have never fished for trout or walleye through the ice or trout open water so even the most basic tips are greatly appreciated. Not expecting to catch much or anything at this moment because I have no clue where to go or what to use. Don't have very much money for bait and minnows are included in our entry fee. If you have anything helpful please PM me and it will be greatly appreciated. Tight Lines. Stay Safe

Can you get to long island area off 2nd landing or does the ice heave block it?

Anglers all reports: Sub zero temps are in the forecast again which has been good for making ice out on the Bay and anglers are hitting a few different zones on the Bay. The Bay area in general has 12 plus inches but be sure and check your way with the ice bar. Machine travel has been the norm. Fishing has remained steady with a great mix of Browns, Splake and Whitefish being caught off the Washburn side. Reports of Perch, Walleye and Browns and Northerns are being caught on the Ashland side of the Bay. The fishing pressure has been pretty high and with a lot of pressure in one area so the fish tend to scatter. Beware of pressure cracks!!! Anglers are fishing as far as Bayfield but only in the shallows and using extreme caution. Bring an ice bar to check your way…Bring safety equipment, like ice picks. We have had some really, really cold temps so the ice is continuing to build. Don’t access the ice with machines on new ice unless you have checked the ice depths.

Scott Bretting from River Rock reports: There has been good fishing out there with a lot of Browns and white Fish being caught by Long Island. The Bay on the Ashland side has 12 plus inches of ice. The Washburn side of the Bay has approximately 10 inches of ice. There is a very large pressure crack on the Washburn side so use caution when crossing it. Ice conditions change often near pressure cracks. There are permanent ice houses and sleeper shacks and tents popping up on the Bay. Machines are appearing throughout the Bay. Beyond that, from Houghton Point toward Bayfield to Red Cliff, machines are not recommended for travel on the ice!!!

There are reports on the Ashland side of the Bay of nice Walleye, Perch and White Fish being caught. Browns, Splake and Coho’s are being caught off of Bono Creek (S-Curve) with ice conditions around 10 plus inches in that area. Inlands have had some reports on some nice size crappies being caught and a few Walleye showing up. Snow cover does make it slushy on the Inlands so be aware!

Attention: Recent snow cover makes it extremely difficult to see the changes in ice conditions! Always bring your ice fishing safety equipment with you.

USE CAUTION at all times! Remember to always check your own ice conditions!!!! Bring an ice bar with you at all times!!!!!

Even with the warm weather and snow I suspect machine travel to be fine out of ashlandand  washburn north to houghton as farther north than that I personally would be walking regardless if you see other machines. Fished out of red cliff on the weekend and had 2 inches or less -10 solid inches all in about half mile it fluctuated like that multiple times.

I fished  this morning off the Pamida hump and caught a 20" whitefish. I threw it outside the shelter and a little later I heard a commotion outside. A smallish white snow owl was trying to steal the fish but only could carry it about 6 feet!
