Wade, there are also a few of us heading over on Sunday (ice conditions dependent). I drove by there yesterday on my way to the UP and there were a lot of trucks out there, so I think it will be ok. Let me know if we can carpool or maybe meet up.

What are the normal ice conditions on chequamegon bay? I might have to hit that place up next year. I just seen a fishing show where they slaughtered the brown trout and splake (I believe it was splake anyway) through the ice.

Thanks Steve.

Hey guys, I left a post in the Chequamegon forum as well.. Still can drive on the ice.. Around Ashland and in front of Washburn... North of Washburn, it is snowmobile and ATV along with foot travel...

Gonna be a brutal one out there today... But a guy could still fish... The temps are not that bad, just the wind and snow...

JB.. Yup, we do pretty good on those splake and browns at times... Lakers, Coho, walleyes, perch, etc etc etc too...

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
