We are out past the 15-mile mark from Pine Island on to Big Traverse Bay
We are out past the 15-mile mark from Pine Island on to Big Traverse Bay. Fishing continues to be excellent, even with the wild swings in temperature. We continue to catch a mix of little ones and big ones. Take home fish are 14-18” for Walleye and the normal 12” and up for Sauger. Great to see the younger generations catch the big ones, creating great memories!
As usual, use glow red and gold colors while having a lively minnow on a plain hook on one rig and something active jigging with noise through the bottom 6-8 feet of the water column is a best tactic. Clam, glow Rattlin’ Blade Spoon are working well. Electronics are definitely helping to show large suspended fish and schools of Tullibee cruising through.
This week we warm up a bit before dipping back down into the negatives with some wind come the weekend. Minor snow accumulation with a slight chance for more throughout the week.
Covid update; We intend to be operating at full speed this winter and have been planning as many disinfecting processes as possible to avoid major impacts to our normal service.
We will also be using paper and plastic products for plates and utensils in the cabins, normal pots and pans will be in cabin for cooking and serving. We are constantly reviewing our process and policies to ensure we are acting safely for all involved. We will be disinfecting and sanitize transportation, fish houses and bathrooms on the ice.
