I was there 2 winters ago. I think I went just after the New Year. The marlin fishing isn't the best at that time of year, but we did manage 4 Dorado (Mahi Mahi or Dolphin fish). The mate cleaned the fish right away for us and we took the fish back home with us. Some of it was eaten that night and the rest was packed into coolers and was brought back to the states with us. We also spent our evenings casting from shore. BTW, you don't need a fishing license when fishing from shore. Got bit off a few times by a Sierra or something else. We took a charter for 1 day and went through Minerva's. If you're looking to get a charter make sure they're willing to work for the fish (like getting out away from shore) and also let them know you'd like to catch anything. For instance, we hooked up the first Dorado trolling and then the following 3 were caught on live bait. It was an awesome experience. We asked the captain and the mate how they knew where to go to and they said that they watch for birds feeding on bait fish on the surface...guess the Dorado were feeding on them too. Here's a few pics of what we caught...

Mr. Nailz

Thanks for the reply. We are going the first week in January so it would be fun to go for most anything. Just want to make sure that we don't get hooked up with any shady charters.

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
