Fishing Conditions for chaumont bay..

THE BEACH MONDAY

WE HAVE REGISTRATIONS FOR ALEX BAY DERBY THIS WEEKEND

 JUMBO PERCH HAVE BEEN ON THE BITE SINCE 1ST ICE

Sunday evening …just before Sundown I took a cruise to duck Harbor ,the boat launch, and the beach .
.all look to be in great shape ….about 6 inches of snow on top but drifted with bare spots … all the slush appears to be frozen…  It appears like ideal snowmobile conditions to me but I see many Walkers coming in not struggling… tracks going on at the launch  do not indicate any wetness … several trucks and trailers at the Village Beach as well as a few at the boat launch… the boat launch area is not plowed out very well but hopefully that’ll change once the ground gets all Frozen  again … Tomorrow is a holiday and I expect the ice fishing industry will be quite busy now that things appear to be all locked up… but beware there appears to be pressure cracks and heaves and some areas along the shore may still not have quite Frozen especially near creeks and run off… We never made it above 5 degrees today and it’ll be below zero tonight so that should help sum things up.. all in all pretty good shape … appears to be at least 15 Shaq’s out near Herrick Shoal and outer Johnson’s… 9in reported off salubrious tip deep 30 feet
