DNR FISHING REPORT
Thursday, April 12, 2018
Little Bay De Noc:
Still had ice however the edges were getting soft in some spots. The area around Butler Island had opened up so use caution. Only a few anglers were targeting perch in 30 to 40 feet off Kipling. Catch rates were fair when using minnows or wigglers right on the bottom. Portage Point and south had open water. The Ford River was showing signs of breaking up but was still not fishable. The Day's River had open water in a few areas. This week could open up some areas for shore anglers.
Big Bay De Noc:
Was entirely ice covered but no anglers had been seen most likely due to the significant snow fall. Fairport is open water but the marina was blocked because of snow.
