Look in the WI thread. JHK431 should have a bit of info for you. I wouldn't keep my trips there to just the spring though because right now the fish are banging and the feedbags are on.

Fishing in the bay it quite good all year long for a variety of species... Spring equals great fishing for almost all species.. Be it trout, salmon, smallies, pike, walleyes, perch... And in the fall, with the cooler water temps, we will see a resurgance of great fishing again...

Chequamegon Bay itself, is 35 FOW or so at it's deepest stretch from Ashland to Washburn.. Then from Washburn to Houghton Point and across to Long Island, depths of 90FOW can be found..

Yes. Which species are you after? I've been concentrating on trout and salmon the last few weeks. I haven't done much fishing "in the bay" recently, but with the shorter days, I will be staying in the bay as long runs are difficult after work.

I was out for only an hour last night. Trolled part of the Ashland shore and lost a coho. This time of year is a good time for coho, kings and browns in this area. Laker season closes at the end of the month.

Places to try include the South Channel. Houghton Point and the shorelines both north and south of there. The mouths of the Souix and Onion Rivers and Pikes Bay. Sticks and cranks off planerboards, spoons off riggers and dipsy's are good presentations to try. The fish can be on the bottom or just under the surface. Small dodgers/flashers and flies work for coho.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
