Ashland Area

Lake trout bobbing around the Apostle Islands remains good.
Fishing has been best in 150 feet and deeper, with reports of some
big fish being caught and released, and plenty of smaller eaters to
go around. Fishing has been good in the north channel, all around
Hermit and Oak islands. There is unsafe ice between the north end
of Madeline and Stockton, so use caution if traveling around over
there. Elsewhere in the islands the ice is 8 to 12 inches on
average. Pressure cracks and lumpy pack ice are bad this year. ATVs
are having trouble crossing cracks. Closer in off Bayview Beach,
splake and brown fishing near shore has been good on about 8 to 12
inches of ice. Machine travel inside the bay from Washburn toward
the lighthouse, and over to Second Landing has been good. People
are still fishing all over Chequamegon Bay, from Washburn south
through Ashland, and east over to Second Landing. Fishing reports
have been mixed – good one day, slow the next. As usual, a mixed
bag has been reported.
