Spent a beautiful day on the bay with two buddies. Between the 3 of us we caught 8 Walleyes and about a dozen perch between 8" and 11".

We were 1.7 miles out from the Filion Rd. access point 4 miles north of Bayport. We were fishing in 6' to 8' of water with 8" to 10" of ice. We got a late start and did not start fishing until 11:00 a.m. and fished until dark. Fishing was slow, but the small perch moving in and out of the hole kept things interesting. I got my last 3 fish in the last couple of hours before dark.

The Northland buckshot with 2 single hooks was the hot lure of the day. I believe the extra flash from the two minnows below the jig might have made the difference.

Sorry for the late post, but I was wooped when I got in last night and the web site problems delayed my post.

Good Luck!

We went just a little north, kind of on a line with the group that was way out there. I don't know the landmarks well, so it is kind of hard for me to relate to Sand Point.

I caught one small walleye also, about 4"

We saw several Gar Pike also. We met some friends out there who went way out, and they said there were Gar all over the place.

Nice! i like the rig u got goin with the stinger hook, good idea! Ive never ice fished saginaw bay i really wanna go check it out. Ive only caught a couple smaller stocked walleye in a private lake thru the ice so id love to go get some nice ones out on the big water!

I was in the area though fishing saturday outta caseville we were lake trout fishin and my buddy got one that was like 12 to 15 lbs! Definatly wanna take a trip back after that, what a fight that was and it barely fit thru a 6in hole! If theres anyone that fishes thata area and wants to share theyre secrets or reports for that area maybe i can tell u more info on where and how that big boy was caught. PM or reply whatever.

The DNR access site is at the intersection of M25 and Filion Rd. ( spelling?).

Look for Bayport on the map and go 4 miles north.

Great job Chris. You are right, the water was crystal clear. Watching the fish all day was awesome. I missed the 1st walleye I saw because he spooked the $%^ out of me when he came in. The 1st two I caught I was sight fishing - very exciting!

My 4 wheeler did o.k., but that Argo is tremendous!

If you don't mind a few questions? How thick is the ice? Do you think it will hold up with a south wind? Are there a ton of peoples fishing out there or do you have some room to rome? Thanx
