just wondering if anybody has been brave enough to venture out to anywhere on Long Point Reef? I'm not giving up on the ice myself. Using caution around cracks and The Landings with a spud bar can still get a guy on top of what I'm hoping for, which is lawyers
Good evening everyone. My wife and I and my buddy Brian would just like to let everyone know that if any of you are looking for passengers on your boats this year we are more than willing. We live up by Shawano and are avid pier rats in Sheboygan but would like to actually catch some fish this year both on Winnebago and Lake Michigan. So anyone willing to teach us and take us let us know it would be greatly appreciated.
Planning on Fishing bago with my dad tomorrow. Walking out.
if anyone is willing to point us a direction it would be appreciated. My thoughts are Merritt which I've fished or asylum, which I have never been to. Thanks for any help.

Walked out from Merrit yesterday from about 10:30-5:00. I walked straight out about a mile from the launch and drilled probably 25 holes or so all day. I kept working my way towards the mouth of the river about a mile from shore towards a group of people with mostly ATVs. Within 15 minutes of fishing by the group I had my first white bass. Then I had relatively steady action for the rest of the time. Usually 1 fish every 10 minutes or so. It was too bad I found them so late in the day though. I ended up catching 7 big whities and 1 fingerling walleye. I had another fish on for a few seconds that was fighting like a bigger walleye. The top of the ice was slush for about 3" but the rest was at least 12" of decent ice where I drilled. However, I think this ice will deteriorate very quickly now and I would not walk any closer to the river where I was. I was off a reef in about 16-18' of water I'd estimate. I don't have a flasher so I fish blind. All fish were caught on a silver Kastmaster with red and white spikes on it.

Out yesterday afternoon from Asylum. A few marks here and there out by the crack and some would follow it, but no takers. Tried castmaster bare and with red spikes, and jigging rap bare and with waxies, even a small jig with a waxie. Frustrating way to end the season, since I doubt it will be safe by next weekend.
Could not believe there were still idiots driving out. And after this past weekend, anyone who continues to drive out this week needs their head examined.
