Little Bay De Noc: Still had ice in many areas but was also showing signs of receding and areas of open water have appeared in various spots. Anglers will need to use caution as some vehicles have broken through the ice in shallow areas. Walleye anglers reported few catches. Those fishing the Ford River reported stained water with no visibility. The best reports came from the head of the Bay in 14 to 22 feet and out from the Escanaba ship docks just south of the Escanaba River in 30 feet when jigging rapalas or using tip-ups. Perch catches were low for those targeting the Kipling flats in 23 to 30 feet with minnows and wigglers. Those looking for the large perch were using small rapalas in deeper water. Several anglers caught whitefish while jigging for perch. Pike were the most caught fish whether targeting them or not. Spearing around Butler Island was good with many fish in shallow waters 4 to 10 feet deep. If anglers plan to head up for the last weekend of walleye season, it would be a good idea to ask the locals about ice conditions before venturing out.
