WALLEYE AND PIKE SEASON WILL CLOSE THIS YEAR ON MARCH 15TH! TAKE ADVANTAGE NOW OF THE GREAT ICE CONDITIONS ON THIS WORLD CLASS FISHERY!
Since we opened in 2006, I have never seen as many trucks on Chaumont Bay as there was this past weekend. I also have never heard of so many Walleyes being caught. The perch bite is slow but is picking up, they are here just fussy or scared of all the WALLEYES! LOL!! Warmer and longer days will help.
The ice is now 28-36 inches on most of the bay. Rock Hard with just a few inches of snow on top. Trucks, Wheelers, sleds, walk…you choose.
The PERCH bite has started picking up in some areas and should get better and better as the days get longer. Guys say they are definately coming in, just are biting fussy. Big perch prefer a lively minnow on a bare hook or jig of your choice.
The WALLEYE bite has been super all winter! It is slowing down now as they approach spawning moods as far as aggression goes. Lots of fish investigate the lure but wont commit. World class fish have been found in 20-40 FOW. 10-12 lbs is not uncommon. Ive even seen some 14-15 lbers! Walleyes are being caught in Chaumont Bay, Guffins Bay, Mud Bay, Black River Bay, and Henderson Harbor. A buckshot or pimple tipped with a shiner or fathead has been the best for walleyes, with some luck coming lately on spoons. Rip'em high to attract fish!
Big gold shiners or Suckers on tip-ups for NORTHERN PIKE or rattling lures tipped with shiners, and suckers are quite effective this time of year.
