Door County Ice Fishing Report For January 12th

Well after a couple of days with warmer temperatures along with some rain it really has improved travel on the ice in areas that had previously had rough ice conditions.A sharp cold front moved through last night dropping the temps to around 10 degrees for a high today with strong north winds making it impossible to move ice houses around so we kept them all hunkered down where they were and found the fishing to be very good.

Everyone fished whitefish today finding the fish to be very cooperative in the morning through early afternoon then the fishing slowed a bit as the afternoon wore on but still found action as the fish moved through it just began to come in spurts where a pod of fish would move through and catch a few then it would be some time before we would see another pod come through.Over all it was a great day everyone caught there limit and also caught many more that were put back.

Ice thickness is good with in most areas we are finding anywhere from 12 to 15 inches of very hard ice.With the lack of snow on the ice along with cold temps in the forecast for this week we should only continue to make ice each day.
