The Door County Ice Fishing has still been going very well for us on a daily basis fishing for whitefish. We continue to find great success catching whitefish on Rapala jigging raps along with jigging shad raps in colors of gold and perch working the best for us but on some of the cloudy days we have been having success on the UV colors. We are still targeting the fish in water depths from 55 to 65 FOW. We have also been jigging for walleyes some evenings in shallower water depths around 30 feet with some success with fish running on the smaller size but still very exciting.
What a difference a day makes with yesterday’s weather being very nice with mild temps and no wind during the day then today being the opposite with temps starting the day being in the single digits and the wind blowing around 30 mph with gusts even higher right out of the north making it absolutely miserable out there. After getting everyone out safely into the houses and getting them all heated up we found the fishing to be pretty good.with almost everyone being able to catch there limit of whitefish. Once again our best presentation continues to be using Rapala Jigging Raps in colors of black and gold along with perch patterns and also the yellow perch color. Hopefully tomorrow will bring nicer weather conditions it is now time to warm up.
Well after getting every one out this morning and settling into the ice house we found the whitefish to be very active. The fish were responding very aggressively to all of our baits color or size did not matter. Today there was not much current in the areas we were fishing so we could fish any size bait and keep control with them and feel the bites. We caught our fish on Rapala jigging raps in colors of black and gold along with the perch pattern in sizes both #2 and #3. As the day went on and lots of fish present we found that they became less active and were picky about how we presented the jigs and we had to slow the baits down to get fish to react to them.
