Well the bay appears to be glazed over after the cold front last night. Anyone have any ice reports? Have they started fishing the S curve, head of bay, or 2nd landing yet? Im in Green Bay, and am itching to get up there soon.

Still waiting on ice up here. Boat landings are freezing in, but, the wind and warmer temps are not freezing up the bay quite yet. Its ready to freeze, just need some calm and cold night. Should be good fishing right at first ice.

And if you have the itch to talk ice fishing, I'll be at the St. Paul Ice Show this weekend and at the Wausau Ice Show and Wausau Gander MTN First Ice Expo the following. If you're around, stop by and chit chat a bit.

For those looking to make a trip this way this year, I put together quite a few different ice fishing packages for this winter, including one that relates to folks that have all their own gear but want a little guidance on the ice. I had a lot of requests for this last year, so, decided to provide it in a package. And, we have our all inclusive packages that allows you to just show up with your friends and we take care of the rest.

Also, we will have more top notched guides working to handle the largest of groups or seperate groups, each and every day.

And, as usual, we do have permanent fish houses for rent. Both sleepers and day houses. Check it all out on my ice fishing page.

Ice Fishing Packages

We should be rolling on our inland trips by late next week or the weekend if the cold comes back. Keep up to date on our website and or our Facebook page.

Am sure a few spawn in the bay, but, big concentrations I do not think are prevelant.

Would be fun to find em like that though!

Do the whitefish come into shore to spawn on the bay? We sein them on Trout Lake and did good last week. Just wondering if a guy could target them in Ashland. I don't believe it is legal to sein them up there but maybe hook and line after dark?

We still have open water and the fish are biting. But, man oh man, with the freeze we had the past few days, ICE is definitely on the mind! The bay is in the high 30's now for water temps and so is the water up into the islands. Snow really helps to cool it down quickly. So, just like the hunters are asking for tracking snow, we want it to get the water solid!

And the outlook for the ice season looks very promising. Lots of fish (Browns to Walleyes to Pike to Whitefish) are pushed up close to the Ashland shoreline right now, feeding well, due to the amount of bait around. So, that should correlate well for walking out right away and for the time we can get out towards the lighthouse and beyond!

With our excitement, we've also updated our website to include a dedicated page to our ice fishing program, and as always, will continue to update our fishing reports and photos of our clients success.

We know deer season comes first for everyone, so, have a successful deer hunt and we will see ya on the ICE soon!

Seeing lots of ducks around, around Ashland itself. But, not sure what is coming in and around the sloughs. Did hunt a couple times with Matt Malyuk, of Chasing Feathers Waterfowling, and we did get some ducks. He would be the guy to get in touch with about ducks in the area. Oh, and I do believe the season is on stand still right now, due to a split in the season.

Fishing has been pretty good. Havent been trolling much, due to finding good bites other places, casting. But, folks are catching fish trolling. Also, there has been quite a few fish in the streams - Coho, Browns and Steelhead.

Water temps are in the low 40's right now and I am thinking the Bay should ice-up by the end of the month or the first part of Dec, if all goes right. Forecast for the ice season looks really good.

With that, doing a first ice contest for those who fish with us this winter. Check out the video link below to find out what we have in store!

jones58, I have been on the river and trolling both still doing well for the most part. River mouths have been fair as well still picking up coho's each day we are out casting and a few smaller bows with a few browns mixed in as well. Just starting to switch gears and getting ready for the hardwater season stay tune.

Fishing has been pretty darn good the past few weeks. Salmon are still biting and the bass bite is heating up. Love the fall.

But, yes, can catch salmon and trout tight in the bay now. Quite a few folks trolling the head of the bay and down the Ashland shore front. Have caught Salmon and Steelhead casting for smallies the past few days. Also, am sure there are some browns and splake around too.

Fishing should continue to be good right up to ice-up. And, with any luck, and we get good ice, it should be a great ice season.

For those looking for a late season fishing trip, get in touch with me, as I will be running a late season special, for trips booked for this later part of October until we put the boat away.

Fished with a friend from 8-3:30 caught a 21" and 20" smallie and one 32" Pike. Tough fishing today but didn't see anyone else catching a whole lot. I will be coming back up in a few weeks any suggestions to get on the fish? I hear of 30 fish days but can't seem to figure out a pattern up there
