I have never fished this area, do you go out from sand bay resort? What is the cost to park there? If the ice isn't thick enough to drive out I will be walking out. Thanks

Thanks guys, you have been very helpful. I have never been out up there so wanted to give it a try. If you have any good tips for a rookie I would appreciate it. Thanks again.

I was up there Sunday through Tuesday. Ice was 10-12" everywhere I went, travel on ice was very rough with lots of sharp points sticking up, and some piled up shove ice over ten feet tall in places. Nice trails to follow out deep to whitefish city. Got all the whites I cared to reel in, a few nice perch, walleye was slow but I had a little action. No trucks out, ATV was the way to go, I have a rack to hold my one man on the ATV otherwise you will really bang up your gear if you drag it.

Still a quite few trucks driving out. We atv'd it out instead. Sloppy on the way out & sloppier on the way back in. Some spots had a couple inches of crusted over slush/water. Top 4" of ice was soft. Did well 45' water 8:00-11:00 in the morn on whites.

Many people bleed out their fish by cutting to ripping the gills. this drains most of the blood out and results in cleaner flesh to the fillets. Also whitefish are slippery to handle and pinching them in the gills ia a good way to grip them resulting in the bleed.

Might be a stupid question but have never fished for or caught a whitefish. Why are they always bloody in the pictures?do you open them up after you catch them?letting them bleed out. PEACE, Dobber Cool Big Smile Cool

Finnlander...read earlier posts...should answer your question. Guess it was in the shallowest part of Larsen's reef where it gets thin quickest.

FISHING REPORT

Ice Depth: 30" Conditions: Sunny
Went out of Sand Bay today following the tracks west of the old plowed road and went up to Larsons Reef. Fished in 30 feet of water and had a limit for two in just over 4 hours. Numerous fish were 22" or better. Only 4 fish came on a slider, with the best bottom baits by far being VMC Tumbler Spoons we had picked up from Rick and Dee at AMA Archery Bait and Tackle. The ice is in great shape with a couple of inches of snow. Saw a few other trucks and atv's, and even a car. Hope to make it up again next weekend and will post a report. Good luck to all and be safe.
