Fishing/ice report

Recommended Posts

Fished out from the access on Black Tiger Bay on Wed. morning- 10" of good ice and a few perch.
The north end of 6-mile bay had 18" of ice and several vehicles driving on it.
Tried spearing in 6-mile bay in 6 feet of water. We didn't see a thing, but the water was a bit merky and we couldn't see great. I forgot to bring the egg shells.
Fished the evening run for eyes and got a couple of eaters for a meal.
Overall, it was a little slow, but fun.

Misc ice reports on DL.

December 28, 2001

Reporting from Woodland Resort, there is about a foot of ice on Creel Bay. West side of Creel Bay there are scattered reports of walleyes, northerns and perch being caught. Ice is safe for walking out, snowmobiles & ATV’s. Anglers are driving out at this point, but we do advise that yet. Please use caution, there could be areas where the ice is not a foot deep and we feel that 14 inches is best for vehicles on the lake.

Anglers fishing in the Black Tiger Bay area are reporting ice conditions of 10 inches on up. Some vehicles are on the lake, but we urge you to use extreme caution. It is safe for foot, snowmobiles and ATV’s at this point. Cooler temps are moving in and this should help make ice. For perch, anglers report success in 30-35 feet of water in Black Tiger Bay. They are using gold color Genz worms. There are rumors that perch are also being caught east of Skadsems Bay.

Reports from anglers fishing at Black Tiger Bay for Northerns, Walleyes & Perch is good. Fishing in 16 feet of water for Perch, using minnows & wax worms. Northerns & Walleyes they are using minnows. Anglers are driving out, but the ice is only 12 inches thick. We urge you not to drive out with your vehicle yet. The ice is safe for ATV’s, snowmobiles and foot. Please use extreme caution out there.

Ice conditions and fishing activity have both improved this past week. The smaller bays are reporting 12" of ice. While a few are now starting to drive vehicles on the ice, we still recommend foot or ATV’s at this point. Overall ice conditions vary from 6 - 18 inches. The weather calls for cooler temps and this should help make ice. For perch, anglers are reporting good to excellent success in the south end of Black Tiger Bay and the west shore in the north end of Creel Bay. Some other spots producing perch include the Storm Sewer area, north of the Hwy 20 Bridge, and Rocky Point. Anglers are using Hali's, Genz worms, small Raps, Northland forage minnows, and rattle snakes tipped with wax worms, minnows, or spikes. For walleyes, the better areas have been the west shore of Mission Bay, the north end of Creel Bay, the west shore of Black Tiger, the old sunken Black Tiger road, and the west shore of East Bay near Camp Grafton. Anglers are using raps, sonars, chubby darters, or jigging spoons tipped with minnows. Spear fishermen are reporting some excellent success on pike in the north end of Six Mile Bay. Good Luck and we wish everyone a safe and enjoyable New Year!!!

Ice conditions are looking excellent. 11-12 inches in most bays. Saw eight vehicles on Six Mile Bay today. All were fortunate enough to drive off the ice. Please use extreme caution yet, as some areas only have seven to eight inches. Walleye bites continue to be good morning and evening. Ice raps and sonars or gold jigs with minnows have been working best. Perch fishing continues to be good across most of the lake. Pike fishing has been good, but has slowed down in the last couple of days. Should improve with weather conditions. Spearing is excellent at this time. Seeing good numbers of pike coming through the holes. Anyone interested in spearing pike for the first time or those
