Ice Fishing Report – February 10, 2021

[Featured Image: Chad Newton on Instagram @cnewton906]

Visit Escanaba has teamed up with local lure experts and the friendliest bait shop owners in the U.P. to bring you a weekly ice fishing report for Little Bay de Noc. Remember, you can trust the ice as much as you can trust how many fish that an angler claims to catch. That being said, this report is weekly and may not be current, so always use caution and sound judgment as the conditions on the bay can change daily if not sometimes hourly. And lastly, enjoy fishing in the Walleye Capital of the World!

Jon has been working hard over at Bayshore keeping up with lure orders and starring in our videos. If you haven’t seen one yet, check it out on our Facebook page! Jon says the ice is looking pretty good and people are able to bring 4×4 trucks out on the Bay in many places.
