Cold temperatures across much of the northland have got the ice fisherman pretty excited about the upcoming season. There’s shore ice and skim ice forming up on the Bay and it might not be too much longer before people are out fishing on the big water. Early season fishing can be great right around second landing and out in front of Ashland for a variety of species. Smaller inland lakes and “pot hole” lakes will have some fishable ice and that early walleye bite can be strong on those lakes. As the season approaches, and really gets rolling, the fishing reports page will be updated with the most current information we can get you! As always, call the shop for the most accurate and up to date reports.
