Cancelled my whitefish trip with guide due to large crack (open water 200 ft) out by the reef where they catch them.  Hopefully this will close back up if we get some colder weather. Check in with your guides or someone knowledgeable with the area before heading out to deep water. 

Tight Lines!!!!!

Strike ice hands down. Just the bibs will keep you afloat and warm, add the jacket for extra warmth if you fish in the open alot.

Nivek, 

IDO gear makes a suit called Arctic Armor and it does float you if you were to go through......I use the suit in thin ice conditions and colder temps... can become a little warm if you work up a sweat walking to a spot a little farther out.....well made suit haven't gone in the water with it yet but its nice to know I will come back out.

Just wondering if anyone knows how the ice is close to shore in the channel by the boat slips and over by bullhead point? Thanks.

Hi,

Does anybody have experience with purchasing winter suits that will keep you afloat should one go thru the ice?  Thanks for any reviews/recommendations!

Yes, you are correct, it's in between volks landing and Dyksville. And has a huge hill that is only worth it if you limit out, which I know you can. People are there limiting so im forsure you can too. No problem, I don't mind helping new Ice fishermen out. Good luck in your future trips!

I prefer to tip all of my lures with waxes. Even though it may seem like wasting two waxies for one whitefish, whitefish could bite either lure regardless if it came for the bottom one first or top.With the spoon or jigging rap, I put three waxies on the treble hook. This results in a bigger dust cloud that draws in whitefish. Spot wise varies, I went on Monday and fished about 24-26ft. Got a four man limit in five hours. We could've limited out earlier but I prefer to keep only big ones. I don't particularly go to sturgeon bay because it is a longer drive for me, I fish on the launches between Volks Landing, and Lime Kiln. There are Whitefish everywhere, if you need a suggestion, I suggest Bayshore County Park, even though it has a hill, you can drive on the ice from Dyksville, or go down with a Atv or Snowmobile. Tight line!
