The cold snap at the start of January has the bay froze all the way across with safe ice formed to some of our good offshore areas. The whitefish bite has been on fire with great catches coming in daily. Sweedish pimples, Hali’s spoons in gold or silver tipped with wax worms have been working the best. The walleye bite has been better than that last couple years but as usual with ice fishing walleye it is still a hit or miss game of cat and mouse. Jigging rapalas and oddball jigs have been working the best tipped with medium shiners. Perch fishing was good early but has slowed in the recent days and good perch fishing has been hard to come by. A few jumbos have been reported by walleye and whitefish anglers but good numbers have been hard to come by. Good Luck and be safe on the ice!
