11 miles off of Pine Island

February 07, 2016 at 4:29 PM

11 miles off of Pine Island, it is quite a contrast from last year.  We still have the majority houses in the one spot covering 2 miles of ice.  We have continued to test other areas for better bites and remain on our normal path. 

The weather has continued to have ups and downs.  The barometer seems to go with it.  So the bite continues to be sporadic.  Mixed reports from house to house, those doing well have been actively working their baits all day.  We have stuck with the same trend all year, smaller baits or plain hooks have been the best approach.

We had 38 degrees this morning and calm, which turned into blowing wind and snow for the rest of the day.  It is supposed to blow tomorrow and then dip below zero for Tuesday.  Let’s not try to predict past that point today.
