Found ice fishing stuff in Lighthouse parking lot today. Gave it to the DNR creel survey fellow. He has it in his truck. Said he would ask around too. You will get it back sooner or later. 👍Maybe the fishing was so bad it was intentionally left. I didnít get a bite today either.



I went off of the beach today after work. Started in 90 ish fow and worked my way back to shore. Marked some but no bites.

We went out from the Whirl-I-Gig lot Saturday. I met people who were coming in as I was heading out on the lake, About 1:00. They had caught their limits by 10:30 AM and then were fishing for fun. They said the action had dropped off after late morning. It was slow, I caught 3 and a buddy of mine caught 2. We were out 2/3 of a mile from the lot in 265' of water. The ice was about 8" thick out there and there were lots of machines all over. There was a bunch of tents way out on Big Reef too.
For the guy who asked how to spell the name of the jigging stick...  Kappu if I am not mistaken. It is a Finnish word. The K is pronounced like a G.

I would say it's still good. There was a bunch of trucks parked at squaw Beach today and a few sleds running around out there.

I did see a friend at Indian country that was off the gig today but forgot to ask him how much ice.

Uncle Sam, Have you been fishing out from Whirl-I-Gig for a number of years? I remember talking to someone from Niagara a few years back out there.

Yes I have off and on over the yrs when the ice permits. I haven't been out for a couple of yrs now or longer. Hoping to make the journey this weekend.  I do more warm weather fishing now

Thanks all!

The first MODIS image from today makes me think Iíll be fishing closer to the head of the bay if I can get out this weekend. This wind and warm air has to be eating that ice fast.

We were out from Whirl-I-Gig yesterday. The fishing was slow. The ice was still good and there were still some tents way north of us. It looked like they may have been out from Pequaming.  I don't know what today's wind did out there though.

Off of L'anse today, looks like ice still goes up to Pequaming but it's hard to tell just looking north from here.

Pretty quiet, looks like a few shacks off of sand point, maybe a few off the marina.

slick ice underneath except near shore where there was some slush, but it sure was a chore to pull the sled!

That should do it for the northern part of Keweenaw Bay. The ice out from Assinins was badly fractured and didn't look safe at all. We fished from the Whirl-I-Gig lot both Sat. and Sun. I'd say we had about 6" of good ice this weekend. With warm weather for the next few days and even rain in the forecast for Wed. I don't think that there will be any fishing out there any more this season. I have to thank somebody who helped me greatly today. When I got out there there was just a light breeze. I was out of the tent because of a flag on a tip up and the wind came up hard out of the south. My Eskimo tent took off rolling north. The only thing that stopped it from going all the way to the open water was somebody about 1/3 of a mile north of me who got out in front of it with his 4 wheeler and caught it. I thanked him then and if he is someone who posts on here I wish to thank him again! Gotta remember to anchor the tents down even if there isn't a wind when you set them up.

Took a ride through today, no time to fish but the ice only goes out to assinnins. Most people I saw were fishing off of the baraga side and a couple people at the head of the bay

How's the ice on the L'anse side? Still going to be okay tomorrow at 55 degrees and decent west winds? Looks like things have changed a lot in the past week.

Would like to get up one more time but unsure about the ice

Heard a couple people were fishing in baraga today from a buddy, didnít hear about much else. Hoping we donít get too warm and windy now so that the ice stays in. It was sure a short season this year. Late January to mid March. Thereís been shorter and longer seasons though.

How did the ice hold up after Saturdays warm temperatures? Thinking about fishing the Baraga marina Monday evening for smelt.

I did end up driving up yesterday. The L'anse side was broke up pretty bad at the shoreline and overall was a bit sketchy. A couple of guys were out there right off the mouth of the river but I wasn't feeling it. Looked like the head of the bay and Baraga side were OK - a few shacks off of the head of the bay and a group off of the marina - they still had an ATV out there.

Thank you! Sounds like I'll go out of the marina.
