My nephew and I spent 4 hours off Bono creek Sunday morning. Got one decent brown and lost Large one due to stupidity. No Gaff. I just wanted to say THANK YOU to whomever found my GPS and left it on the snowbank by the boat ramp. Renews my hope for this world..... Thanks again!

Machine travel may take a hit with the expected snow and warm weather coming.  Ashland may be the safest?  We will be walking..

People are venturing to long island with machines. I have seen some machines off the sioux and onion 4-5 inches of ice last weekend. Smelt are there in some areas and seems day to day.

Thanks!

Anglers All Reports, The ice fishermen wanted cold, and they got it! Sub zero temps have been great for making ice out on the big lake and anglers are hitting a few different zones on the Bay. The Bay area in general has 10-12 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 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. 

River Rock Inn & Bait Shop reports, With the cold temps there has been some good ice forming. Scott recommends using caution at all times!!!! Always bring your ice fishing safety equipment with you. There are tents popping up, however we stress using caution….call ahead and check before venturing out. 

There are reports on the Ashland side of the Bay of nice Walleye, Perch and White Fish being caught and Burbot/Poor Mans Lobster/Fresh Water Cod/Lawyers (all the same fish) being caught soaking dead Smelt on the bottom. Browns, Splake and Coho’s being caught off of Bono Creek (S-Curve) with ice conditions around 10 plus inches in that area and increasing daily with the frigid cold temps. 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!

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