Heading up that way sun & mon, any chance at some lake trout ice with these cold temps? Hoping to fish out of Bayfield, but judging by the reports sounds safer to the north, are people fishing out of Redcliff? If not safe we will stick to the bay. Also any recommendations on atv or snowmobile? We have both but prefer sleds.

Thanks much for any input & stay safe out there!!! EYES

Glad to hear you guys did well this weekend. Nice fish!

For us, the fishing was pretty darn good too. We've been moving with the fish - finding Browns, Coho, and Herring mostly on our guide trips. Perch and some other species mixed in with our Day and Sleeper Houses.One thing that has been key for us is having more than one guide on our trips. Bigger groups, we can have up to 4 with us. This allows us to scout new spots, after we have clients set-up and fishing in one spot. Then when new fish are found, we can move quickly and stay on a good bite. We do the same, when just out fun fishing as well, each fishing a certain spot, and then, meeting up where ever the best bite may be. Being mobile like this can be the name of the game out here.

Ice wise, we've got ice down now from Houghton Point up here to Bayfield, but, not safe yet. Thankfully with the cold temps we should really put some ice depth on the new ice, even through the snow we have on it. The ice from the Sioux to south of Bayfield will be the newest, even with the cold temps it just could not form, being pushed out off shore with heavy winds. From Bayfield and north, this ice stuck in since late Friday. Its a cold one again today, 35 below with the windchill. Inside day and then back at it tomorrow.

Also, last week, we shot a show with Gillespie, it will air this weekend.

Good luck!

Well there seems to be good ice right now. Anglers are taking machines on the ice but it is still advised to know your ice and where you are fishing. Call for ice conditions. There are reports of many species of fish being caught right out on the bay in Ashland. Perch have been extremely plentiful and there are some nice size Browns being caught. Walleyes, Northern's and `White Fish are biting. There are some cracks in the ice so it's advised to be cautious. Overall, on the Ashland side of the Bay the ice is in good ice fishing shape.

The Ashland Chamber of Commerce, 800-284-9484...www.visitashland.com encourages anglers to check the ice before venturing out on Chequamegon Bay. Use a spud to measure the ice where you will be fishing. Always call the local bait shops for a safe ice fishing report. Check out our website for a complete listing of lodging and dining in Ashland. Fish...Shop...Dine...Stay in Ashland, Lake Superior's Hometown, The Historic Mural Capital of Wisconsin! Upcoming winter events include: February 9th, King of the Bay Snow Drags near Maslowski Beach in Ashland. February 16th, Book Across the Bay XC Ski Race and Snow Shoe Trek across Chequamegon Bay Ice from Ashland to Washburn. Smile

Yes, you can easily walk out to the area folks are talking about with the no snow conditions out here. But, it still is a long walk, 1 mile or more. There are people driving cars and smaller trucks out there right now, with over a foot of ice in most spots. You will see where the shore ice meets an area of pack ice that stretches across the bay, folks are driving up to that. But, snowmobile or ATV is always best in my opinion. With that, always check the ice for yourself - do not just go driving anywhere, even if you see someone else there.

Still havent made any ice north of Houghton Point. Hopefully the real cold coming this weekend into next week lays a sheet of ice across the deeper water.

As always keep up to date on ourFacebook Page As Well

CrappieNutJustin, I was just out where Jim is talking about below, between the Oredock and the lighthouse off the Ashland side. You can go out easily from over there, plenty of room to fish.

The "mud flats" are basically north of the lighthouse to the point on Long Island and the entire area east of that line. Very large area with lots and lots of room. Yes, generally if your looking for perch this would be a good area to start. (walleyes can be tough to find at times) Go off the "second landing" north of town. Lots of good parking there. Don't wander too far out, as there's open water off the green can ledge (north) between Houghton point on the Washburn shoreline and Long Island. Stop by the local bait shops in town and ask questions on where to go and what to use. Nice folks.

Good luck!

Bill

Ended up not making it up there this week as planned but am going up next week, my question is, is the mud flat i hear of from the ore dock to the lighthouse the best perch/walleye spot? id assume so, wouldnt mind getting whitefish or trout too but mainly going for perch/walleye. Ive only spent a total of 2 hours on the bay and it was this fall on shore from the hot pond after trips to the montreal river for salmon. Also how roomy is that flat??? I dont mind fishing near a crowd but i dont want to enfringe on anyone, thanks!!!

Yes there is a high school tournament on the Bay this weekend! There will be 150-200 students out there this weekend. This tournament is being staged out of the Rod and Gun club by the second landing and is sponsored by the National Guard! Teams will be in many areas of the Bay but shouldn't interfere with other recreational fishing opportunities. Big Smile
