Thank you. I'm gonna try to get up there this weekend and check it out.
Keweenaw Bay/ Baraga County
A very reliable source told me it should start this weekend !
Anything going on up that way yet? River fishing? Da bay ice blow out yet?
The snow/slush conditions are probably the worst I have ever seen on the bay. I had a fourwheeler to use that never failed me but the 4 inches of slush on the ice then covered by snow sucked so manpower was the only way to get out. Went off the L'Anse Marina Friday, Wirligig Saturday and Willow tree Sunday. Only caught fish off the Willow tree.
Managed 2 splake but wish I still had a snowmachine. Thursday there was tons of parking spaces open around the bay. After the snow there was 10 inches and stuck trucks in assinians where I was going to fish.
If a few more snowmobiles could rip up the launches that slush would freeze up.
I've been out on the ice consistently over the last 4 weeks.
What I can tell you is that a snowmobile is probably your only way to get around... besides pulling your gear with manpower.
Up to 2 foot drifts in some areas with the occasional slush pockets.
I am planning to come up for the weekend with a group to fish for lake trout. Can anyone report on the ice and snow conditions on the bay? Will we be able to get out with a snowmobile?
Solid 8-10 of ice extending north. I've been fishing 3 miles north of baraga and there are 4 wheelers and snowmobiles out
Ice report please.
