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.

      FYI 2 of the 3 landings near us were starting to look a little beat up yesterday. With the temps & moisture today along with more of same forcasted for tomorrow, I have to believe that access to the area lakes will be getting tougher.

      Still about 14-15 inches of ice...plenty of slop and water today. Access was very beat up when I left.

      Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend? I see Hunters point and Agate bay are closed due to cracks by shore. I usually fish the east shore but might have to be open to something else.... Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend?

      I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds. Fun and a good bite also! Cliff
