Went out this AM with a Sturgeon Bay Guide named Jon Sowl.  We got our limit (10 walleyes) before noon-4 were perfect eaters around 18 " and the others were fat pigs 21-26 ".  All were post spawn.

We planned on jigging a little but we got lazy and picked everything up trolling both flat line and side boards, mostly flicker shads, no particular color 

Sowl is pretty knowledgeable and changed things around until we started hitting fish.  He doesn't advertise much but has a Facebook page .

Just looking for a water temp as well. Will be in the area this weekend, the weather looks horrible, but just curious of the water temp. Thanks in advance!

My dad is up there now and said the entire bay is still locked up.

Any improvements on the ice situation in the bays?

Cruised by lil sturg today and still completely frozen. Bad news for opener as it looks very unlikely it will be open.

From Clafflin Point north out to the big bay it is all blown in pack ice as out as far as I could see.  All points south to the bottom of LS the ice is "solid" as of Tuesday.  I did not walk out so I don't know how good the ice is.  Nobody was fishing.

50 yards to the left of the pic is the Hideaway bar just to give you the angle you are looking from.

Checked out ice conditions yesterday.  Any ice that is left is unsafe.  Its appears that the the wind cracked up the ice, and any that is remaining, is large kegs that froze together. It still looks like Little Sturgeon, Rileys and sand bay are frozen like this. But Unsafe. Deeper waters outside the bays,like Larsen reef, are wide open.  Bring on open water!

The bay is far from open... look at the satellite maps and NOAA reports
