Anybody fish over in Garden Bay through the ice?  I'm headed up toward Manistique in a couple weeks and was thinking about stopping on the way up to try this area for a few hours.  Is it at least fairly good ice in there?

Spent the weekend bouncing around throughout little bay with mixed results. Fished the drop offs, 25’ on the reef, and 40’ on the flats. Ended with 6 eater eyes and dozen nice perch plus a lot of shorts. Bite seemed quite odd with nearly no morning/evening bite that we could find but midday produced all but one eye. 40’ in the mud from about 9-4 brought best success on last day. Natural #5 raps did the best. Broke off on few good fish with limited success on tip ups besides one eye at daybreak

Fished last 2 days upper bay.  Pretty slow, 32 ft a cupl perch and small eyes, no flags.  Fished a upper edge of reef 14 ft (dropped to 22) marked at all depths but only managed 1 16 " and several pike on tip ups.  Saw only wheelers and sleds,  got stuck several times,  drifted snow with top 3" hard and soft under.  Some slushy spots.

Main lake ice might hold but access to and from probably won’t . Too risky in my opinion

Think there will be truck travel by this coming weekend? Or is that a pipe dream?

Just a quick ice update.

Prior to this weeks snow storm, we had at least 6 to 9 inches of good ice on the whole bay north of Gladstone. The lower bay had just skimmed over on the 3rd or 4th, and probably only had 2 to 3 inches of ice.

After the storm on the 7th, we had 5 to 6 inches of heavy, wet snow. On the 8th, guys said it was very wet and sloppy on the ice, and that they were completely soaked by the time they got to their fishing spots on their quads. Nightime temps have been getting into the teens and single digits, and will continue for the next week, so hopefully most of the slush will be turned to ice by the weekend.

Got several reports that portables were seen off the Terrace, (south of Gladstone,) yesterday. If that's the case, then the area off the Gladstone harbor should be safe again this weekend.

Hi everyone, I'd like to fish little bay or big bay for some pike. I catch and release everything under 20 pounds so just looking for a trophy. I've never fished these bays before so just would like to know where I could hook into some nice pike. Any help would be appreciated. Send me a message . Thanks

Access of the yellow gates was fine as of Sunday afternoon we parked on the ice.  Fishing was very slow caught three legals over the course of the weekend.  Anyone posting about the shorts is 100% telling the truth they’re very plentiful.  Marked some better fish in deeper water south down by Kipling...tight lines
