MOON PHASE (93%)
Waxing Gibbous

My Dad, brother and I fished Little Sturgeon most of the day today for whitefish.  Landed 16 and lost a few at the hole.  Lots of passerbys with an occasional biter.  Most came on copper pimples tipped with waxies.  A couple came on slider rigs above the pimples and a couple came on perch jigging raps.  Fished about 12 fow.

Was out about two weeks ago and got on a night bite for whitefish in the bay around 20 FOW off of the park. Sliders were working tipped with waxies as well as gold jiggin raps. Got around 5 fish in 1 hour before it got dark.

The temps may not melt the ice, but the wind and any rain will have a bigger say in that. Willing to bet that in 3 weeks time, it will be a no go. I hope I'm wrong, but will not be the least bit surprised. A year ago to the day was one of the last days out there for most guides.

Planing last trip for some whitefish on 3/16.  You guys think it will still be fishable in 3 weeks with weather above freezing for most of the time?

Ice on Little Sturgeon itself is still decent if you can find a good entry point.  Cars and Trucks still driving out.On the east side all trucks stopped short of the tip of Riley's Point.  Shorelines however are not good.  Lots of open holes and thin spots.  We made the decision to walk out from Sunset but didn't need to.  Still 18-20 of ice in ok condition. 

Claflin Point where the Suburban went through is a well known bad area.  You should never drive closer than 150 yards from there at ANYTIME.  Currents from the bay come around the corner, hit that reef, and swirl deteriorating the ice from underneath.  It claims at least 1 truck or ATV every year.

Drivers should start avoiding squaw island as well.  The reef off the point is long and shallow, and is the second place to open up after Claflin Point.
