  • Coho…?

    Coho…?

    The day started at 2° and we’re now at 30° for the rest of the night. Temperatures are only gonna go up from now until later tomorrow afternoon and peek around 37°. I guess we’ll see how sloppy it gets. By Wednesday the forecast is calling for teens for the highs and subzero at night…

  • Departure Day

    Departure Day

    Today was another fine day on the Bay. There was plenty of shoveling going on over the weekend…be it trucks, quads or UTV’s. The remanence of the attempted plowed road from earlier in the season sucks in any angler unaware of how deep it is. And there is a second drift just off the “road”…

  • The Bite Is Back!

    The Bite Is Back!

    The bite is on! The front has really sparked interest after a tough week of fishing. This is also the most anglers we’ve had on the Bay this season. The wind picked up and clouds moved in this afternoon after a calm, sun filled start to our day at -15°. Snowmobiles, quads, side-by-sides and trucks…

  • Busy Start to the Weekend

    Busy Start to the Weekend

    It has been a pretty busy Friday! Anglers from all over the Midwest have converged on Little Bay in hopes of proving there are fish out there that will eat something other than gobies. There’s power in numbers! Let’s go now!  A warm front can only help this negative pattern we’ve been in. Travel out…

  • Blustery

    Blustery

    All the wind out of the south yesterday managed to form some pretty good snow drifts.. especially as you head north to the top of the Bay. If your going out the Kipling public landing it seems just fine, until you get out about 3/4 of a mile. Then you start to see the drifts…

  • COLD & WINDY

    COLD & WINDY

    The ice conditions on Little Bay remain great with plenty of new drifts to navigate. We’ll see tomorrow if today’s strong winds out of the south will push water up through the cracks. We are warming up to 23° tomorrow. It should feel balmy. Whenever I struggle to find a worthwhile picture to share I…

  • Bite is Picking Up!

    Bite is Picking Up!

    Today began at -4° and we reached a high of 12°.  Less than a 20° swing in daytime temps and a steady WNW wind is exactly the consistent weather pattern we’ve been looking for. Pressure has been rising all day. Let’s hope it steadies so these fish can eat. The bite has definitely picked up…

  • Drop Down at Sundown

    Drop Down at Sundown

    Today was a perfect day on the Noc. Starting this morning at 2° and still, mid afternoon peaked at 23° and then the fans turned back on. Not bad though, just a steady breeze out of the northwest. There was plenty of sunshine early and then a few clouds moved in for the end of…

  • No Wind?

    No Wind?

    What? There was hardly any wind today on the Bay. This morning was a crisp 2°, but we had an abundance of sunshine that lasted for most of the day. I can’t believe how easy a daily task like filling the over-night trailers with diesel seems absent the 20 mph winds and blowing snow. After…
