We've had a really nice run of great weather up here and the fishing remains strong. Smallmouth are found in many different zones within the shallows right now and the fishing has been fun.
Ice continues to be a factor out there for the trollers and recreational boaters. There's still a huge ice flow in the South Channel and the ice pack looks to go all the way to the horizon. There's quite a bit along the Souix River beach and towards the Onion river, too, so be careful and be mindful of the winds and current direction.
