Friday nite the bite was very good for most fishing in 12-16 feet next to shallower reefs. Numerous reports of Walleyes caught. Saturday during the day the action slowed for most but there was some that did pretty good with the Perch. One rental C/R a 40″ Northern Fishermen portabling out deeper had mixed results. Some did ok others not.
The NW wind picked up at daylight and blew fairly steady all day keeping most fishermen inside their houses. The ice with no snow cover is making things pretty slippery out there and if you don’t have ice cleats, you will fall.. We sprinkled washed crushed rock around the entrances of the rentals and that helped alot.
Looking forward to some snow coming this week so the ice will settle down.
Keep a Tight Line! Eddy
