Still plenty of ice out where we were fishing and plenty of fish to go along with it! Caught fish in shallower water from 6-18' on the normal rigs/sliders tipped with waxies. Landings are holding there own but some cold weather is needed soon! Some cracks here and there to watch out for but that's the norm on the bay.

I got out about 9 Am and had to move twice to find the whitefish. I did great!
I had no stop action with catch and release trying for walleyes after I had my limit.
I used a camera and fished spots that had a lot of current. Pimples worked best today for me. Green and Gold are the best colors.
I found water standing on the ice in areas up to 4 inches. Use caution because cracks are not so apparent with the standing water.

I had a great weekend on the ice with a pretty good whitefish bite. Friday produced a 3 man limit with the morning bite being pretty hot and heavy at times but seemed to slow off by afternoon. Saturday, one group left early, 2 shy of a 3 man limit and my other groups were also off the ice early with their limits. Sunday was also a decent bite for my half day group of 4. They were off the ice by 1 with a few fish shy if their limit.
We are getting bit on jigging raps, spoons and an occasional bite will come on the slider hook tipped with waxies worms. We also tip the spoons and raps with minnows heads as well as wax worms. They seemed hungry and ate pretty much anything we dangled in front of them.
This warm up in weather will cause some sketcky ice, so use caution when going out. even though we are on a solid foot of ice, i did find some areas with considerably less. there is no doubt with wind and the strong currents we have been experiencing, there will be some cracks opening up and some open water pockets. Be safe out there everyone.
Just moved to the area a few months ago and I was wanting to get out fishing one of these weekends. I see please out of of lineville road. I was wondering the best place to get out onto the water at and what most people fish for out there. I would like to get some whitefish. If anyone is willing to help me out you can PM me.

Here is a quick report on Whitefish from Door County.
Anglers are getting good numbers of Whitefish all over the bays and reefs. Travel was good all weekend but please be aware when venturing out that there are still some working cracks all over the county.
Spoons and Jigging Raps with slider rigs were outstanding for all my customers over the weekend. Friday Saturday and Sunday all my customers had no trouble catching limits of nice Door County Whitefish. We are seeing a large amount of smaller fish (Sub 15") this season so far but with the numbers being caught its is easy to sort through them and only keep the nicer sized fish to take home. Most people in my shacks reported catching and releasing well over 30 fish per person all 3 days.
This warm spell will be interesting as we move through the week to see what happens to the conditions for traveling. Our shacks are sitting on 12" of ice but there are many spots on the way out that are as low as 2-3" that you have to navigate around. Please use caution!!!
We still have many openings on the books coming up especially Fridays and Sundays. Call now to get in on this great action.
