Made it out as planned today. Spent most of the day at four different spots looking for the whites everyone else seem to find with more ease. Got two, lost several. Caught a couple perch in deep water as well. A lot of water on the ice, but as said, still plenty thick. Met Dale at the bait shop in the morning.. seemed like a nice guy. Everyone I talked to today had some fish, but said it wasn't what they expected. Still a good time. Many of the guys I talked to were here for the first time... news must be drawing newbies like myself.

A side note.. ran into a bunch of guys everywhere I went that were super nice. Willing to share everything. One really good guy took me another new guy to a spot, and even gave him a handful of jigs as he wasn't too set up yet. Never ran into so many just nice, helpful people. I'll be back in the summer!!

Had spring fever yesterday afternoon so the boss gave me the afternoon off to go fishing. I was fortunate to hook up on short notice with Dale of Wacky Walleye Guide service for the afternoon. We limited out on whitefish within two hours and missed just as many. 50 fow with the #5 pimple with natural colored gulp waxies. We then relocated for the nightime walleye bite in 30 to 40 fow and fished with odd ball jig and large shiners. Unfortunately the walleye bite was slow, with one lost at the hole, and a one burbot being landed.

As to what I consider myself as experienced fisherman, thumbs up to Dale and his expertise and knowledge of fishing the area. I guess thats what happens when your on the water virtually everyday and live right there like Dale does.

Ice was still 17 inches to over 2 feet thick, however wet slushy snow made travel difficult unless you have 4WD. As always be careful.

Leaving early tomorrow morning to come up for the first time... yea! Just got the day off. Looking for sand Bay... I'll figure that out. Anyone point me an easy to little bait shop up there, close and easy to find. Like working with locals when poss. Thanks!!! First trip, can't wait. Totally blind, but it will be good.

Anybody getting any pike on the east shore of the bay at all yet. I never fished the east shore (only West). Just wondering if it's worth taking a trip to try for some pike. Was thinking about maybe this weekend.

Bay of Green Bay/Door County -- We (myself and my son Brody) were out on Monday afternoon from 2pm to 4pm filming a sports piece with FOX news. Brody limited out on whitefish in 1 1/2 hours time. This segment will air this Thursday on FOX and will cover a lot of the tricks and locations to help you catch whitefish in the Bay of GB. Attached is a picture of Brody with his first whitty of the day.

Pike preacher we drove out of sand bay resort. There is a plowed road going out about a quarter mile out. After that we followed the tracks out. we were advised to avoid water shallower than 12ft or any shallow rock humps. The rocks warm up the water and the current eats away the ice from the bottom up! Also watch out by larsons reef there are huge heaves. Stay on the tracks and you'll be fine. We were about 3 to 4 miles out.

Fished with Alexanders guide service this last weekend had a wonderful time not only does Bret catch fish he go's all out,to make your trip a time to remember. Bret gave a guy a free trip in a little fishing contest between our group I thought that was pretty neat!! Whitefish were snapping and Bret was on it.
