Drove by head the of bay while working today some tents and people out few 100 yds.  Im sure ice is ok there but looks sketchy to me lots of water pooling on top with warm weather. Ice not quite to baraga marina yet we need sub zero soon or not much fishing for K bay.
If it fly's its Dies, If its Brown its Down, If it Swims Im gonna Catch it and Slap it on the Ice!

Alot of guys fishing off the willow and the red rocks. Sunday there was about 20 tents out there, today about 10, even a guy with a 4-wheeler.

Big cold snap coming up early next week. Hopefully the wind will stay down and the bay will freeze fast. The shack me and my buddy are building is will be done next week and we wanna catch some fish!

Any reports from k bay? Hows the ice holding up? My friend drove by there and said there's still people out there and that the ice looks like a puzzle. And hows the catch?

Did anyone get caught on the ice floe? Or was it just shanties that were lost? Warm temps + south wind + little ice cover = lost shanties, lost gear, and maybe lost lives.
