The ice on the Washburn side is not safe. 3 days ago a tug drove into the Washburn Marina so all the ice has been broken up. Yesterday a guy went through the ice on his ATV just off Washburn Marina.

Let's not for get who takes the most fish. You know the fish them self'. Planted nonnative species like browns rainbows 29" to keep eat a lot of fish to get that big. Then we wonder were are brook trout? We want bass they cried now that's mostly what I catch around the state an they tell me I only can keep 1 or 2 walleye's. One spot I fished I caught lots of walleye menu small then they up the muskie size to 48 and over 10 years 1of 4 had bite marks year over year the smallest fish I caught went from 6" to 14" now to catch a limit of 3 fish is not a given when 10 year ago I thew 10-20 back now I catch bass there BIG FISH EAT FISH TO GET BIG!!!!

Once again the fisher get blamed for rules made in Madison Trophy fish are nice and could be raised but let's crop off the eaters on all species and get rid of nonnatives if they are harming natives not protect them.

The s curve has anywhere from 4-8 inches it has not melted to much yet. there was 3 inches off memorial park in washburn last Sunday, have not checked since, I would stay away from there if you come up. S curve area should be fine just check you way out and be cautious. Good luck!

Could someone please provide an ice conditions update for the bay, specifically the Washburn side. I'm wondering if the ice is deteriorating with the warm weather. I'm an hour away and considering making the trek over tomorrow to fish. Much appreciated!

FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 26° - 30° F
~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter and wife Carolyn from Anglers All, 715/682-5754 (http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com), report the following:

This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. Ice fishing season is here and the catches have been good! Carolyn LaPenter reports that anglers have been catching perch, walleye, brown trout, northern pike and the occasional splake.

Those targeting walleye and perch are having good luck in 12 to 15 foot of water going out from First and Second Landing.

Northerns are being caught next to the Ashland breakwall, and northerns and perch can be found in the scattered weed beds nearby, she noted.

Anglers are getting walleyes and browns out by Tern Island across from Shopko Hometown (formerly Pamida).

She said brown trout and walleye are being fished from shore off of the ore dock base and the marina. In addition, people are doing fairly well in the Bono Creek area, where they are catching browns, whitefish and herring.

Carolyn reports there is 6-10 inches of ice in some spots off the Ashland shoreline, depending on where you are. As always, conditions can change rapidly on Lake Superior. For your own safety and especially if you are unfamiliar with the area you will be fishing, hire a local guide or check with a bait shop prior to venturing out on any ice.

Carolyn strongly urges anglers to be cautious, bring an ice bar and check their way as they go. For the most complete and up-to-date fishing report, just give them a call at Anglers All and they will gladly keep you informed!

it looks like my post on here that had a lot of information and people in charge have been removed. i had the three people in the state in charge of commercial fishing both at state levels and the dnr. i will see if i can find out the names and emails again.

well people, i talked about this all this year. no one seemed to care then. so why is it different now, because the state finally did something about it, they cut our (the sport fishermen) daily limit. they are going to ruin the area. no one will want to come here to fish if they cannot keep enough fish to make it worth their while. i hope you all see what i was talking about earlier this year. you didn't pay attention then, it is almost too late now. if enough of us were to get together we could do something. but we need numbers to get anything done. contact every one you know that can join us to get things done in our favor. we need to eliminate net fishing of any kind in the islands and the bay. they are destroying our sport fishing experience. they are destroying all the money that could come in to the area if we had a good fishery, not a so so fishery or a bad fishery as it is becoming. i will try to find the person to contact and let you know. but we need people, lots of people.

fisherman2014 if not targeting trout what are you targeting and why are so many getting fined for not legally tagging your fish so it doesn't get count against your quota?

State netters are allocated 366 trout this year. There are 10 state licensed netters. The tribal netters are allocated 31000 fish this year. The sports fishermen are allowed just over 7500 fish. There is a problem with the system as it is.
