Been out a few times in the last week or so with mixed results. Ive done well off the Ashland coal dock and hotpond targeting coho. small presentations have worked the best for me. The ice has treated me well this year but I'm starting to look forward to some open water and smelting.

Went off second landing this morning. Lots of perch with some good size ones in the mix. Also picked up a 34" pike, 17" brown, and saw some cohos come through.

Anyone else find any fish?

pretty sure smelt run happens after ice out and water gets to the right temp. Wink

When do you think the smelt will run this year? Anyone have any ideas? I would like to take the 11 year old and scoop a few for the experience, not to mention the beer battered dinner. Any ideas would be great.

Went off the Onion this morning. Was only about 1-2" of ice next to shore and was kinda sketchy but after about 20 yards out there was more ice. Fished close to the river mouth in 10 FOW first for a couple hours and didn't mark anything. Went out to 50 FOW and marked a couple fish. One taker but got off and that was all we marked for the next couple hours. Wasn't much ice out deep. Only about 2" of good ice with about 3" of bad ice above that.

Any one have any better luck out there???

Are the walleye biting off Ashland? Where would you fish them this time of year? Never fished them in the bay- need some help. Thanks in advance.

We hit the cohos good today, 10 guys with 50 cohos. Several big browns were picked up and a giant 25" whitefish. The large portion of cohos came in and were caught within an hour and a half. It wouldn't be a bad idea to downsize on baits about now.

Hey Folks, quick report for those thinking about making the trip up this weekend, Well here’s the scoop for the bay as of lately, snow condition’s are going to be better on the bay this week with the much needed warm up and rain we are getting today for the bay area, Which will make ice travel much easier for atvs again. From here on out stay off the ice with cars and trucks! Slush and standing water will be present for a few days now As far as what’s hot on the bite this past week or so has been coho’s we don’t fish them this time of year as we will catch all the little silver minnows we want come trolling time. But the ore dock over to the hot pond area has been the most consistent for that bite Rattle type lures can be best to draw the school in and then at time’s small panfish or jig heads tipped with waxies or even plastics. Look high and low in the column but this time of year they like to run high. Anglers are also picking them up off the river mouths mixed in with the steelhead and a few browns as well. The walleye bite has not hit full stride yet either and the perch bite has been hit and miss this last week as well around the bay. But this will all change this week and over the course of the next few weeks, all the fish species will start putting the feed bag in to over drive this week or next week for sure. The islands are starting to wind down as well, ice is still good from shore out to the south end of hermit but slush will be a problem now, there is a big hole that worked its way from the pines on hermit over to Madeline mid channel so take not of this if heading out there. The bay and the river mouths are going to be the hot bite from here on out, But make sure to check ice depth as you work around these areas as this ice can be good one afternoon and mush by the next morning. As far as the stream steelhead opener we might start to see some fish working there way up stream with this warm up coming later in the week, it’s all going to depend on how warm it really gets up here, but they are ready and so are we. Look to the lower holes for the best weekend bite. It’s going to be a nice change slipping back into the rivers and feeling a big steelhead on the long rods again. I would say we have 2 weeks left of fishable ice here on the bay, before it go’s the other way on us. And with that we still have some openings left for some fantastic late ice fishing adventure here on the bay. From walleye, perch and pike to trout and salmon it’s all going to be hot fishing over the next few weeks so if you are interested contact us very soon! Also for the folks looking at open water trolling we are booking now for shallow water trolling trips for trout and salmon, great action most days on coho’s with some real nice trout mixed in as well. And don’t forget we also take stream trips for steelhead as well, if you have never done this type of fishing or would like to get back into it give me a call, All I can say with steelhead on the streams is POWER TRAIN nothing fights like a big chromer in the stream. Good luck and be safe this weekend.

Hi just wondering how the ice conditions were with all the warm weather we are having. Anyone catching any fish in the bay or over by the onion? Thinking of trying it this weekend, any info is greatly appreciated, thanks
