Hi There Fellow Fisherman, Captain Andy here with this week’s Fishing Report.
Ice conditions have improved out on the Saginaw Bay, but always remember you must proceed with extreme caution! Most of the cracks are staying tight for now but that can change with any strong west wind, so marking the spot where you cross is a good idea. There have been good reports coming in from 18 to 26 feet of water from Linwood all the way up to AuGres. There are huge schools of fish starting to work their way to the rivers so if you pick the right spot you should have success. I have also talked to quite a few anglers that have had the best luck between 11am and 4pm so being early isn’t always the trick. Perch reports have been few and far between but there are some folks catching fish in the 3-6 ft. range but you may have to do some moving around to get a meal.
Winter fishing is in full swing and we still have the best ice fishing selection in the state backed by a sales staff that is second to none, so stop in and let us fix you up for a safe and successful ice angling adventure.
