Little Bay De Noc: Anglers have been struggling with the snow and slush and as a result very few are participating. Travel is limited to snowmobiles although some side by sides with tracks had been out. All others did a lot of shoveling.
Walleye anglers had very little to report however perch anglers were catching them. Most were undersize. Perch fishing was fair in Kipling with wigglers or minnows in and around 30 feet. Several anglers tried to rescue their shanties, but many were buried with all the blowing snow. If you have a shanty out there and have not checked it in a while, you probably should.
Lake Gogebic: The slush problems are very bad. If you do not have a long track snowmobile or are willing to walk, don’t attempt to go out on the ice. If you do go out, bring a shovel and stay closer to shore so you are retrievable. The perch bite has been good. Fair catches were reported along the west shore flats with wigglers.
Keweenaw Bay: After the storm on Sunday, there is another 10 inches or more of snow on the bay which will not help the slush problem. Lake trout fishing was fair in 100 to 275 feet when jigging 1-2 oz. jigs with cut bait on the bottom. Splake fishing was fair in 15 to 40 feet with tip-ups and minnows.
