Whitefish--Sat 24th, started at Sugar Creek from 7:30 to 1 pm, 12" ice there. At 1 pm went up to Little Sturgeon. First time with new C-Fish camera. Camera is best thing since sliced bread--the camera rotates inside the housing, so you don't have to keep playing with the cord like with the Aqua-view to get it to show your lure. Fair amount of current at Sugar which moved the camera and lures. Tried three dif depths from 22-36'. Saw a couple small schools of whiteys--3-5 fish at a time, and several loners. Jigged with two rods--#3 jig rap on one and small tungsten jig on the other, with 3 waxies on jig and 3 on slider hooks. One loner whitey came in and looked at rap but did not hit it. As soon as he saw tungsten he nailed it, so one on the ice. Saw bunch of walleyes, including one monster--looked to be 8# or better. When I saw the walleyes I added an angle worm to the jig rap. One walleye went right up the the worm and sniffed it and then swam away. First time I ever saw a fish turn down a worm. Also saw 4" smallie and a big catfish. After things seemed to die at Sugar drove up to Little Sturgeon. 19-20" of ice there and still fair amount of current. Went out to 34' and saw tons of whiteys--just like on the video below--none of the ones in the big school even looked at baits. Smaller groups of 3-6 came by and several looked at baits but did not hit. Eventually had one bite off the waxies on the slider hook--missed him on the hook set, and one biter bit off the waxies on the tungsten jig--no clue how I missed that one on the hook set. Fished till 5 pm, ended up with just the one on the ice. I tried worm on slider hook with the waxies, thinking that might turn the whiteys on, but they weren't interested in worm either.

Tough bite this past weekend but managed our limits. Really had to work for them using the usual pimple and slider tipped with wax worms. Worked shallow in the AM and moved deeper as the day went on. We had to keep moving to find the active fish. Slow and steady jigging technique was key.

Here's an underwater video of a huge school of whitefish going through our area and a break down of what I saw while ice fishing on my blog.Copy and paste links below. Enjoy.

Hey, I launched off of Cliff View Dr next to High Cliff Park in Sturgeon Bay this morning... While walking backing to the launch at 10am-12pm I had lost my Cabela's Fishing rod case that had three of my fishing rods and a bunch of my ice fishing tackles and along with my black diamond head lamp and was wondering if anyone had found it.... Didn't realize all my fishing gear was gone until I went to fish in lake poygan and drove all the way back to the launch on Cliff View Dr hoping to find but there was no sign of it..

I would appreciate if who every have it would return it to me please and thank you!!!!

Yesterday I drove my truck out of Carmody launch as did a lot of other trucks all the way pass Caflin Park to in front of county rd. CC. Its a rough ride pass the park but take your time. Ice was 12" everywhere I drilled. Fished in 36-45 fow. Only caught 2 whitefish all day on slider rig with jigging rap. Tried all different setups with no bites. Seen hundreds of whities on the camera and vex but none were interested. Lots of people around not catching anything at all and most left by noon. Will try again in a couple of weeks.

Mr Unlucky, I am not sure if that was the one or not, I saw it over by the first reef as we drove out to the deeper one, just noticed that it was a small black grill. I will be going back up there on Sunday and if its still there i will let you know!

Sorry folks not a report but I was fumbling through a few old GoPro Videos I messed with last year and thought this was a nice short piece demonstrating the technique we employ to hook up Whitefish, and with the camera on my head it has a "video game feel" kind of interesting. I hope anyway. This was mid February last year I believe, and I was fishing with a couple friends in one of my portables while I had some other rentals out fishing near by.

It should be a good weekend of fishing coming up. Give us a call to book.

Hey Honkerbonker that's about where I was. It was a black propane grill. I think a Coleman. It would have had a little tank the fitting and a tongs inside.

Mr unlucky, what kind of grill did you have? I did see one out on the ice but was un sure of who it belonged to, but it was over by the guides ice shacks ..... Was out 01-18-2015 from 11am- dark. Marked fish all day in 30 feet of water. Ended the day with 5 whitefish. Using gold Swedish pimples with wax worms and power bait wax worms. Talked to others in the area who seemed to be doing better with the slider hook 10 inches from Swedish pimple, however I couldn't get it work for me. Fish were in the area all day, just not aggressive like they usually are, especially towards dark. Ice was plenty thick for atv travel from the drive out from sand bay beach with the least amount being 10 inches where we fished. Hopefully the fishing gets better, seemed like an off day yesterday.

Whitefish Shacks are out on our favorite off shore areas finally. We had good success this weekend with limits in most rentals. As always techniques can make all the difference. Pimples with Sliders and Jigging Raps with Sliders took all the fish, nothing earth shattering there. It was nice enough out that moving around to some holes drilled outside the shacks helped keep people on active fish also. We did not have many days like that last year with the frigid temps so that was a nice change. 10’-12” of ice in the areas I was this weekend but I would highly advise against anyone trying to drive a truck out yet (I have had several people ask me) be safe and take an ATV or Sled. I did hit a couple pockets of 8”-9” of ice and some around 20” where it had been shoved. With that kind of variance please be smart with your travels on the ice. I have openings for this coming weekend and will be on the ice Saturday and Sunday looking to hammer some fish. Packages start at $40 a person for just a rental with other packages and services available.

Give me a shout to book.
