First time Fishing this bay.  Got out before sun up with my dad.  We fished from the light House to the mud after hopping the crack, which is getting very soft in most spots.  It sounded like a creaky floor walking near it.  My dad caught a dozen dink perch and I caught 0.  Lots of slush although some ice was hard on top.  I would consider all the ice I drilled honey combed.  It was all chunks.  Still at  14"  or so in most spots with sturgeon holes wide open.

Out this afternoon in the bay.  Fished in 8 to 9 ft of water.  All I could muster up were  mostly small perch and trout perch...Ice overall was decent considering the  weather.  Obviously losing its strength but still a fair amount there.  Shorelines are open in a few areas.  Nice to be icefishing in 60 degree weather but sad to see season coming to an end so soon.  Only a few people in bay and a few  out on lake with wheelers.  Good fishing All!

The whole North Asylum shoreline is pretty much all private residences. I can see one firelane that leads to the water. Where is all this parking you speak of? Honest question.

Drove around up by north Asylum. I didn't see any no parking signs along roadways by fire lanes. I'm guessing you could park along road and walk to fire lane landings. Gonna try Friday.

Not sure exactly what the parking situation is like since there's no parking on the firelane, but this does lead to the lake.

Does anyone know of a direct access point to north asylum bay?  Would like to try in that area but didn't know if i'd have to walk from either south asylum bay or cowling bay to get there.  I did fish South Asylum today from 6 fow to 15 fow only marking little green flickers chase my lure with no commitment.  Forgot to measure the ice but it looked pretty thick, only my hand auger went through just about as fast as a powered one.  The ice in the little channel between the parking lot and the lighthouse has a little hole of open water.  Be safe and tight lines everyone
