Our ice fishing season is underway! We are fishing west of Rocky Point, as well as at Lambertson’s Rock and Twin Islands anywhere from 23-28 feet of water. The bite has been good so far. Guests are catching lots of little fish and we’ve seen some slot fish being released. Captain Ed Albrecht says the Red Lindy Flyer is working well for his groups. We are fishing in areas with 13-16″ of ice. Captain Cole Buley reports that pink and gold and green and gold are the hot color combinations right now. The colder temperatures will allow us to start moving toward the reefs and north of Rocky Point. As always, we advise extreme caution if you are fishing on your own. We have found anywhere from 4″-16″ of ice doing our checks. Please stick with an outfitter or resort this time of year. Best of luck!
