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

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

Would anyone be able to provide a report on the status of the ice?  When would you think Little Sturgeon Bay may be clear of ice?

MOON PHASE
First Quarter

Fished out of Stone rd. today 03/24/18. Start fishing at 6.30 am in 19-20 FOW. First fish around 7 am. Used jigging rap with slider hook. Jigging rap did most damage. Get my limit at noon. Ice is still OK at least 16 inch. Crack by the shore 1-2 inch. All guys was sitting at the same range of depth. I tried little deeper 28-29  FOW with no results.

I think if you are trying to make one more trip for whitefish next week it will be possible but as always do not forget your safety stuff.      Tight lines.
