Was just home visiting my parents over the weekend. Took the kids out on Saturday night. There were 2 to 3 footers out there and we lasted about 45 minutes trolling. I guess the 6 and 8 year olds havent had enough experience to get their sea legs/stomachs. Had to turn around and head back in when the vomiting began. We were just starting to mark a bunch of fish in 90 feet just at the edge of the bank out of Sturgeon Bay. The report is that the fish are biting very well at the moment if you can stay out there longer than we did. I felt pretty bad for the kids but hopefully next time it will be a little bit calmer out there.

As a side note, the perch are biting pretty well in the bay with quite a few fish in the 10 to 12 inch range if you were looking for something to do during the day. We finally found a good use for the small gobies. The perch love them. We could catch a few dozen gobies in the 2 to 3" range and the perch just gobbled them.

Good luck to anyone headed up there. With the salmon derby just completed, there are few boats out there right now, which is nice.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
