Cleaning out the emails today, I found one from a week and a half ago! Sorry about that, Joel. Thanks for the pics and report. He said in his email -

"Thanks for the suckers yesterday-quite the mixed bag! Got 5 walleyes and this bonus 22” bass-which was released."

Looks like a nice slimer, too!

Water temps in the upper bay are in the mid 30's. Lower bay is in the low 40's. All the accesses are open.

So the question is... Is it worth driving from Madison Wisconsin to pull boards this weekend? I have never been up there that I hear this is the time of year where you can catch Giants. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Reammy001 - Feel free to stop by the shop anytime with questions you might have about icefishing on the bay. Diane or I would be happy to point out some spots on the map to help get you started.

Kipling launch is a good spot to go.  There's also another spot to drive out north of Kipling as well.  Be careful as there's always a pressure crack that forms near Butlers island(near Kipling landing).  When you're up there stop by the bait shop guy as he's always extremely helpful.   Good luck!

Gotta love fall bronze backs, (well, spring and summer smallies, too!)

Reports we got from the guys fishing bass on Big Bay de Noc this past weekend were EXTREMELY good!

Weather was way too nice Monday afternoon to pass up, so my dad and I hit the breaklines south of Gladstone. Lindy rigging with sucker minnows. Didn't find huge numbers, but that wasn't the main point of this trip. We just wanted to tug on a few fat toads, and enjoy some "on the water therapy."

Mission accomplished.

Late report from last Friday pm. Went out of Kipling after the Brewer game. No other boats out. Talked to Dana at the bait shop earlier and was told to try between 2nd and 3rd reefs trolling purple cranks. Started out at 1.5 and worked up to 2.0mph. Made 5 passes with no hookups. Was marking some nice fish around 15-20 ft in about 26’ of water but they didn’t want anything to do with my baits. Not sure if it was something I was doing wrong or they were just being tight lipped. Water was pretty calm with very little chip. Will definitely be back up in the spring time to give it another try. Didn’t see another boat out north of the narrows all weekend which makes me wonder if guys were out in another area. It’s nice when u can see the group of boats out in an area trolling to know where u need to be. Especially if ur new to the body of water like I am. Oh well I still enjoyed just being out on the water. My brother in law was a little nervous being out for the first time at night....especially when we were done and headed back I to the launch. I wasn’t going fast by no means but even 25-30 mph can be scary at night time. Lol
