Early January Report

As we move into mid-winter, most guys are looking for the new, fresh ice, but there’s plenty of great fishing to be had closer to Ashland with better ice conditions. Ice ranges anywhere from 24 inches to 4 inches depending on where you’re going, with the Washburn side having the thinner ice. The usual mixed bag is being caught in front of Ashland in the 15-30 FOW range. The long range forecast is calling for some cold weather coming, so that will continue to lock of the ice further to the North and continue to make fishable ice on some newer water.
