I was sitting in my living room overlooking Little Sturgeon facing NE overlooking Claflin Point a little after 7pm Saturday night. There were UTVs coming in a line around Henderson's when they all stopped at Claflin. Using binoculars I could see their headlights in the open water. Then they all slowly disappeared but not because they were driving away. I called 911. EMS, Sheriff, DNR, and Coast Guard all became involved. Officer stopped to visit me to get more information. When he left, I walked back inside and my wife told me she watched another set of headlights disappear in the same spot.

Coast guard in Milwaukee called me to also get more info. Told him to call me back when it was over and he did. When he called back he said 2 sons were pulled from the water as dad was already on shore. I think this was the second instance which my wife saw. Was very relieved to hear the family was ok. They said I was the only caller they had for this incident

There was no evidence of the first incident that I witnessed. So if anyone has any information I would like to know that everyone is ok.

We walked out to fish Riley's Point Sunday. 17-20" of ice. HOWEVER! The first 12" were honeycomb and the remaining bottom ice was saturated with water. Fishing was slow for the first time all season.

Please Be Careful!

March is here, and with it, warmer spring temperatures and soon, open water fishing!! We are booking trips now for huge pre-spawn walleyes, with a target date for ice-out of around April 1st. If necessary, due to bad weather and ice, we will accomodate and reschedule. I have a few openings in April so now is the time to book a trip. This is the best time of the year for a shot at the biggest walleye of your life, with fish over 10 lbs caught daily once the ice goes out. Check us out in the Businesses section, on our Facebook page, or at our website at www.anglersplusguideservice.com.

My Dad, brother and I fished Little Sturgeon most of the day today for whitefish.  Landed 16 and lost a few at the hole.  Lots of passerbys with an occasional biter.  Most came on copper pimples tipped with waxies.  A couple came on slider rigs above the pimples and a couple came on perch jigging raps.  Fished about 12 fow.

Was out about two weeks ago and got on a night bite for whitefish in the bay around 20 FOW off of the park. Sliders were working tipped with waxies as well as gold jiggin raps. Got around 5 fish in 1 hour before it got dark.
