Gone fishin’

Upper Peninsula

• Overall: On Lake Superior, surface water temperatures were in the low 40’s. Deep snow could be found along the northeastern end of the Upper Peninsula.

• Little Bay De Noc: Only two launches have been used because some are closed, and some had ice. Most use the Kipling launch, which reopened with the warmer weather. The only other launch is Gladstone, however there is no dock in. The handful of anglers that have gone out reported good to excellent walleye catches. Most were trolling stick baits in 20 to 35 feet from the First Reef to the Center Reef. A few that anchored on the Center Reef also caught fish when casting stick baits along the break. The catches were a mix of large and small fish including some limit catches. Boat anglers should watch for any floating ice. Looking ahead at the extended forecast, the bay should remain open and fishable for the next week or so especially for boat anglers.
