The mouth of the St Joe was nothing but ice flows Sun. Don't see how anyone could possibly fish there. Don't know about the grand. But I would bet it ain't much better. All it takes is a good Feb. thaw, to flush the ice right out though. Thats what I'm hoping for!
I think most of the pier heads are iced in now, but have you tried fishing for them through the ice, its a blast. Lexington harbor is a good place to fish for them, and there are a few hitting, but not real good , it should get better as time goes on. use tear drops and wax worms, wigglers or minnows. fish about 4 inches of the bottom. also sanilac can be good too. more chances of catching browns here. and there plenty of ice no also.
