    Don got a 31 inch walleye this morning on a tip-up. What a great way to start the year off!

    Better perch and walleye reports coming from the reefs, than closer to Kipling.

    Bob caught a 29 inch walleye on the Menominee River. An absolute MONSTER for an inland fish!

    Robert landed a 37 1/2 inch pike off Gladstone on a tip-up. Healthy fish!

    Adam sent in a picture of his kids, with some big perch they caught on LBDN this morning, using wigglers.

    Quinn caught a nice walleye off of Kipling.

    Thanks for sharing, everybody!

    How far south is there good ice? Headed down Wednesday.

    At least as far south as Escanaba, for quads and sleds. Nobody is taking trucks south of Gladstone, just yet. North of Gladstone, they're taking trucks all over.

    Andrew and his dad, Joe, caught 31 and 26 inch walleyes off the Terrace this weekend.

    Alec landed a 33 1/4 inch pike Saturday on a tip-up and sucker, (love the pike drawing on the wall of the shack!)

    Hearing 9 to 12 inches of ice. Reports have been pretty slow, so far. A few big perch and just a few walleyes. This is unusually early to be able to fish that spot. It's normally better towards the end of the season, as the fish begin to stage for the spawn in April.
