Fished off Van Cleve on Saturday, Ice was in decent shape but it's probably in my personal opinion not good enough to drive on anymore. Fished for 6 hours, Lost 1 decent walleye at the hole it was about 17-18 incher, had another on and lost it pretty early on in the fight (drag was extremely loose) and caught a 20 inch northern on a tip up. A lot of marks not a lot of chasers. Used jigging rap in Purple and also a perch color. Fished in 30 feet of water off the break.

Fishing was SLOW on the North end yesterday. Only a few small ones that had to go back and didn't see many people around us pulling em up either. Saw 5-6 decent eyes on the camera but nothing interested in anything we were throwing at them. Ice is still good for truck travel but it's getting slushy and wet after this warm up.
H20walker, i don’t think comments like that are appropriate on this forum. People that pay to rent shacks don’t deserve to be screwed over so that you can feel like you got back at someone. I’m just curious if you are aware who plows the roads out of days river access that everyone uses? The bay is plenty big enough to accommodate everyone. Not to mention every interaction I have ever had with sleeper shaks has been positive. Respect goes both ways...
H20walker, its a shame, not alot of people have consideration out there. Had a guy set up in my tipup spread, and im a big guy so im not running a few hundred yard spread either.
Bdhunter plowed roads out of days river access. Follow to sleeper shaks and set up by them. They have no consideration for anyone else on bay so return favor.
Do any of the launches on the west side of the bay have plowed roads? Curious is a GMC Terrain can get around.
Fished with six tip ups all day. Had 4 flags and got one northern. And a bonus ten inch perch at the end while picking up that didn’t set the flag off. Fishing 20 feet of water north of the vagabond. Fishing north of there today. Will report later and would like to send a thank you to whoever plowed out here.
Hello all, I wondered if anyone has fished out from the Yacht Club in Gladstone ? I wanted to see how the ice was out that way? I am going to call the bait shop to check in but I figured I'd ask here first. Thanks in advance for any info.
Thanks for the report I really appreciate it. I've heard good things about blades. I plan to stop by them for bait while I'm up there.

Fished saturday out of kipling. Very slow, person in our group caught two small walleyes and i managed two keeper perch. Figured with the warm up it would’ve been better. Everyone i talked to said it was slow also.
