Awesome!
Thanks for your reply.
Have not been up there yet.
Is access easy?
I'm 74 years old and still dragging my shanty around.

Access on Chippewa is easy, turn left at the sign for the bay, or if you miss it , take the next left and it intersects. Public landing at the end which is on the ice. The bay is shallow  and you have to push straight out or left to get to deeper water. Small perch and cruising Pike are abundant in the shallower part with better fish in the weedlines in the deeper areas. Their is next to no cover from the wind, so if you chill easy better have good clothes or a nice heated shanty.

THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY.
Believe me, I've got the gear.
Dave Genz insulated Clam, Vexilar
FLX-28 and Color underwater camera, Northern Outfitters suit I have worn in minus 30 degree temps, heater, scoops, gaff, spud bar and much more.
...Just no transportation.
Good luck out there.
Going somewhere this weekend.
See you on the ice!
