Downright Polar

Well, it sure is winter here in the U.P. right now with some extra chilly temps and some fair snowfalls.  Night time temps have reached well into the -20 range in the interior of the Upper Peninsula with areas closer to the Great Lakes staying a bit warmer.  It has been to cold in my opinion to venture out onto the rivers due to ice & just overall miserable fishing conditions, so to the hard water we went.  Some fun action on the tip ups put some Northern Pike on the ice, a nice way to spend the day with friends when the temps are this cold :)

Unseasonable

The warm weather & lack of snow continues across the Upper Peninsula. Hopefully this pattern ends quickly as we will need the snow pack to ensure good water levels through the season.  Currently it is the least amount of snow I have ever seen on the ground for this time of the winter.  This nice spring like weather has offered some optimal fishing conditions, Steelhead and Trout fishing has provided for some mid winter fun.  Likely winter holding water is where fish have been found on a variety of techniques.  Pictured below is what I believe (?) is a Barred Owl, a very cool sight to see & rare to get this cooperation for a photo!

Big weekend at Lambeau-Go Pack Go!
