Hey folks, Happy New Year from the big pond! Smile Well as Jim said the ice is setting up nicely here on the Bay and the fishing has been pretty darn good for us and our guests most days! From the looks of it a few others have also been doing well! Way to go on that Sturgeon Red line! Got to love the fight there! We have been doing real well most days around that 20ft or better for everything from perch and whitefish to big trout, using jigging spoons and tip-ups tipped with waxies and shinners for best results. Trigger stop by River Rock when your up or call the shop from 6am to 9ish Monday thru Wed... I open the shop and get folks steered in the right direction on those mornings. We are on the bite full swing right now and plan to stay that way until the end of the season! We are now booking for Whitefish and Trout trips or just a great day in the bay for mixed bag trips. Give us a shout about our semi- guided trips as well... big savings there for folks who have most of there own gear and need a hand getting and staying on a good bite!

Don't forget to check us out on Facebook!

Stop at River Rock Inn and Bait, right on US 2, across from the Power Plant. They will get you pointed in the right direction and help you with bait.

Good luck

Fishing was ok over the weekend. No huge numbers of fish, but, the groups of clients we had all caught fish and had a great time on the ice.

Ice has built to Houghton Point now, with this being the thinnest. The Ashland ice is now 8 to 10 inches, with 10 being the norm. Ice off Bono to Washburn now is 4 to 6 inches in most spots.

With the growing ice, we now have our Sleeper House on the ice and will have our day house out shortly. Both are mobile and we move them around to what the fish are doing, great times catching fish in the comfort of these shacks!

You can find more info about the Sleeper and Day House on our website, Fish House Info

Also, keep up to date on whats happening on our Facebook Page

Fished off of washburn today in 35FOW, one whitefish, we did mark a good amount of fish but no takers. Fished in front of the Bono creek couple days ago. the early moring bite was delayed due to the grueling hour and a half battle with a sturgeon. Big Smile

I've only fished out here a couple of times. My buddy and I are wondering if its worth taking the trip from Superior on Sunday to catch some browns or koho?

Nice fish Jones! The weekend was so-so for fish catching for the groups we had on the ice. Caught some nice fish, but, no huge numbers. Typical of how the bay can be hot one day and the next be slower.

For the questions asked, lots of place to access, and if your walking, might want to go off Bono Creek access, Kreher Park or the Coal Dock in Ashland, and the Coal Dock or Memorial Park in Washburn. I can only recommend ATV or Snowmobile travel off the Ashland areas right now. And do check the ice for yourself before you and while you are heading out.

Fish are being caught both jigging and on tip-ups. Most Trout come on both methods as do Walleyes, Pike, Perch and Salmon. Whitefish and Herring more so on jigging techniques, and you can catch all types of fish in the areas mentioned. Right now, I would find 20 or deeper for the best action. Buckshots, Macho Minnows, Jigger Chain Droppers, Pimples, etc are all good spoons to jig with.

Hey there so I'm heading up to ashland/bayfield tommorrow and looking for some awesome ice fishing. Saw the pictures of the big browns and would love to catch some myself! Not familiar to the area so any advice or help would be greatly appreciated! Just have a few questions:

1. Off what landings or what parts of the bay are the fish biting?

2. Is a snowmobile needed to reach these areas?

3. How deep of water?

4. What type of bait/jig?

5. Tip-ups or jigging?

Thanks so much!!!!!

jones58, how far up the creek were you fishing? Are the regulations different than fishing on the lake?
