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

I was checking reports on other lakes and came across a post about there being a high school ice fishing circuit tournament in Ashland this weekend. I was wondering if there was any truth to that? If so, does anyone have an idea of how big of a crowd an event like that would draw? I was planning on making my second trip ever to the bay this weekend and want an idea of what to expect before I make the 5 hour drive. As always if anyone has advice on ice conditions and where a couple amateurs could get on some browns coho or whitefish it would be much appreciated. Thanks

Walleye - as BJT said, folks did well right out from Ashland, about halfway inbetween the end of the Oredock and the Lighthouse on the breakwall. Its a big area, with lots of room to spread out. Its kind of like a fish bowl for predator species, being a huge mud flat, they roam, looking for prey. So, not one spot is usually better than another, all the time. One area might stay hot for a week, but, then another area will get hot, due to the pelagic nature of the fish.

Also, FYI, we need this WIND to stop, so we can ice up other areas outside the bay. Lets hope for low winds and COLD.

Fished out by the lighthouse, did well jigging hali's in 28FOW, ended with 20 perch and a couple nice Browns including a 27" incher. Sounded like most people did pretty good out there.

Came up from two rivers and fished all day Saturday. Caught some perch, no real big ones, but 11were big enough to taste good! Caught all on waxies; one waxie on a gold spoon to sink and a waxie on a sliding jig about 8" above. Even split as to which waxie the fish were taking. Ice was solid, lots of water on top.Looking forward to coming back and trying for some whitefish. Tight lines y'all!

South,

There were spots of water that were up past my ankle today. Not suppose to get cold until tomorrow afternoon, so, water will be an issue. Cracks opened up and water is pouring into holes. Really windy too. Be careful out there!

Jig ... Bob Use the same rig. It works anywhere you fish, and not just for white fish.
