I'm looking to hopefully try Sturgeon Bay tomorrow. I've always gone off of Bayshore or Dycksville. Can anyone give info on where I can access the lake at or near Sherwood Point? Thanks

Well the last couple days the bite for me was fair to good. I like to be honest with my reports. Had a couple rentals with limits and a few that did not get their limits. Everyone did however catch fish and had a great time. I had a little better success yesterday using Gulp Waxies VS real waxies, so make sure to toss some of that in your bag of tricks. I was going to do another video on cleaning the Whitefish but I did not keep any fish personally so that will have to wait until after the weekend. I did get a lot of great feed back about the pin bone video and it seems folks liked that tid bit so I will try to do one where I clean the entire fish. If you are looking to get out and fish I have some open spots for Saturday and Sunday. The fish are there and biting even though it can be streaky. I had some great clients out over the last two day that were an absolute pleasure to fish with and am looking forward to another great weekend on the ice. Again basic rental packages start at $40 and if you are a novice and need a little more help I can get set up with what you need to get on these great table fare fish with one of our guided packages.

Cut a V and pull those pin bones right out. Have the wife bake them, or better yet, soak them in milk overnight and deep fry them. Good stuff.

N8, if trying tip ups for pike, a lot of people fish within Sturgeon Bay itself--anywhere from Sawyer harbor east to the ship canal. I have had pike hit in front of the marina which is east of the old steel bridge. Along south shore of the bay, between Sawyer and the downtown I have worked the drop offs with tips ups and missed a few.

I've only tried a couple times, and usually fail terribly. I think that video will help... thank you.

When baking, any suggestions for white fish? Just hear they are better baked vs deep fried.

Awesome video Robert, that's the same way I've been doing it. Hear tons of people complaining about the bones and its not always the easiest to explain. You couldn't have taught a better lesson on boning them properly without wasting a ton of meat. Wink

Here is a short video on "Pin Bone" removal from Whitefish.

I hope you guys find this useful, sorry for the slight bit of framing trouble I had the Go Pro on my head. :-)

FISHING REPORT
1/26/15 10:55 AM CST
Ice Depth: 12"
Another weekend in the books on the ice. Action fair to good for the most part. All shacks caught fish this weekend and some had limits, but more importantly they all had fun! Saturday the bite was up and down and a few of my clients had limits early and were headed in by 11AM but others the fish did not cooperate as nice, we moved around and found some extra bonus biters from 60-80 fow away from the shacks late in the day. Sunday was very slow at first but then we had a run of action at about 9AM. I sat down and iced 10 and threw back 3 in about 30 minutes. If it were not for the wind yesterday we would have explored deeper water again but it was a bit nippy out with the cold NE wind so all the clients hunkered down in the heated shacks and ground it out. I will be on the ice Thursday with a group and have more openings for Thursday. I have some openings on Saturday and several on Sunday this week. Of course I have several days with openings over the month also. Rental rates again start at $40 a person for the day. That includes transport on and off the ice. A great deal for people that have their own equipment just need to be on a spot with fish. I also have packages for less experienced folks that need some gear. For those folks calling or e:maling asking about "safe ice" for driving, remember there is NO SAFE ICE and I recommend you refrain from driving trucks out on the deep water locations, we see too much variation in thickness and we have not had a long enough extended cold spell in a while to add significant ice depth. Be safe and have fun out there. Cool

The last picture is of me reheating my lunch yesterday. LOL

Put the miles on the tires this weekend... fished everything from Larsen's to Sugar Creek... found eyes, tons of whitefish and lots a perch out in 60ft. Boy were the crowds big fishing whitefish in the usual spots, avoid those guys.... That's the biggest trick right now, get away from the pack if you want to catch Whities and Perch. Eyes are hanging tight and very negative right now so you gotta be so subtle you're almost dead sticked. Saturday night as the front rolled in the perch got HOT for us!
