Fished the bay out to the point off the North launch. Ice Fished it this past Saturday. 12 inches of ice. Quite a few dink Perch and 1 fat northern. 3rd time with tip ups this winter for Walleyes and still not a single fish, and stayed till 8 p.m. I know the Rainbow Smelt have done a number on them and maybe they stay out in the deep with the Smelt too.
I would NOT fish the carry in launch on the south end as their are visual wet areas, assuming springs.
Looking to Ice fish Long lake in Vilas next week. I have driven by it a few times in the past but never see anyone fishing it through the ice. Any safety precautions a guy needs to be aware of (springs)? I know it's very deep and has a few feeder creeks along the lake. Any help would be appreciated.
