Ice fishing report

I was locked out of my site for a couple days as an update had the wrong code. Sorry













With sub-zero temps and very little snowfall, they bay is in great shape for fishing! Walleye and perch have been hot. This morning it was -17 and the bite seemed slow, but picked up a little as the sun warmed it up to 4 degrees. Ice thickness varies quite a bit—anywhere from 7 to 10 inches. Sleds and quads have been going out without a problem and hard shacks are starting to fill up our bay view. Thank you everyone for your cooperation on keeping shacks and sleds organized around here!
We are looking forward to another great weekend of fishing!

James Mckerchie hauled in a walleye on Munuscong Bay Friday. Thanks to a frosty blast from Old Man Winter, the Pickford area bay was able to support




Master Angler Houghton Lake Pike. Clint Mock from South Bend, IN hauled in a 40″, 16 1/2lb pike on early ice. He was using a kastmaster rattle jig tipped with a minnow on 4lb test….it took a little while to land. Nice fish!
