Well I went to Captain Cove today on my half day. There were about 10 guys when I got there fishing on the ice, so I said the heck with it and ventured out. Ice was 2-2 1/2" Didnt crack when you walked on it, and I had my spud with me. There were some big guys on the ice, so I wasn't to conserned. I started fishing at 12, and got off the ice at 3 30. I caught a limit of small ones, and threw back about 30 others. One other guy caught a limit. fishing was fairly steady, with the bite on waxxies. A fun day, I hope to be back out there this weekend,:)



Stay Safe,
Brian

Quick question, where can you park to fish the cove? Might give it a try today after work before this predicted storm.

There is a little lot on the right side of the store It only holds 5 or 6 cars. you can also park down by the Dnr ramps. Its kinda a long walk though.
