Your the man, thanks for the report
Trash in the parking lot and no one even fishing yet....unreal.
Looks like Catawba is the place to be for now.
They are going to run another series of boats through the south passage. They took a tug boat through and back two days ago. On a south wind this will open cracks. It will heal up quickly but beware... Especially with a little snow on top.
It is hard to make out the peninsula with snow... Either way things are moving and the ice has places to move to. It is by no means game over, but it is a severe watch your ass warning. Winds, ice breakers, and walleye fever are pretty hazardous to ones health.
Great advice. Did anyone make it out today?
Heard the lot was full at 830
I saw that - surprised how late. Bet it won’t be the same this weekend

Fished today out of Catawba SP. Went 1.7 miles nw, 26fow. Auger throttle linkage froze up, choke broke, managed to get holes drilled through the 9" of clear ice. Plucked an eye on first line drop, a 2nd shotly after, then it was slow. Picked up last eye, 6 lber at 9:30. No more eyes, but the perch moved in, and I ended with my limit of perch. Fun, cold cold windy day. Heard reports if good bite at 3.5 miles. Ice was nice, NO cracks! Good luck to all
Thanks for the report. Any snow on the ice for a sled?
Very little snow, small patches of hard snow, and lil drifts at the few blow ice spots... I was on sled, but air cooled.
You can get "scratchers"

Anyone care to share some info that's been on the ice with a Saginaw bay guy via pm? I saw something on facebook, but wonder about its validity.. I'll pm you the vid if you haven't saw it...."helicopter footage"
