Took a ride today to check the ice out...Some small areas of open water off of Claflin, in front of the compass rose, and off of lime kiln.  Two or three guys inside by wavepoint.  I did see a couple of guys off of sugar Creek and the creek is flowing strong...Be safe out there.

Next weekend you may have some foot traffic up here, but more than likely a couple of hundred more boats on Fox in DePere!!!

I doubt if the ice will last through the week with temperatures in the forecast

Glad team phillips caught something.  I got zip.  Most guys seemed to have 0-1 fish.  A couple had 2-3, at least those that were outside on the ice. I tried 5 different spots from 19 to 43'.  7 am to 1:30.  Never saw a whitefish on camera.  Last spot I had either smelt or alewives or both come to look at my bait.  One fish looked long and skinny like a smelt.  Other looked like larger head on smaller body, like an alewive. Used # 3 jig rap in black and gold, with slider hook and waxies--0.  Also #3 jig rap in glow-white-chart head with slider--0.  Black tungsten jig with slider--0.  I had bought some of the bait balls and tried two of them.  They look like a giant alka-seltzer fizzing on the bottom.  The cloud they gave off did not mess up the camera view too bad, but they wiped out the screen on the Humminbird.  I turned the sensitivity as low as it would go and the screen was still almost blanked out, like chaff on radar.  I don't think I could have seen a fish on the depthfinder if it had come in, with the screen so full. Minimum ice was 12", max about 16" but there is 1-2" of water on top of 80% of the ice.  With the wind blowing the water around, once it cools down again the lake will be like a skating rink.  Wear your creepers.  About 1/2 guys walked out, 1/2 on ATV/sleds, but a couple cars were out well past the mouth of the bay.

Just outside of Little Sturgeon Bay, had a solid bite today. Tried a few set ups but the Flirty Girty jig as a slider did the trick today. Did pick a few up on the jig rap as well. 

Hurry hurry, ice is going quick! Took ATV today and will again in morning but probably on foot next week. Good luck to all.

There is very little snow out there now.  Most of what we had melted today, so unless your sled is good on glare ice, I'd leave it home.
