I ended up as planned fishing Hubbard lake for a few days last week. I started out by fishing in Saginaw Bay on Wednesday. A very nice local guy from a MI website lead me out and showed me the in and outs of the bay and crossing the cracks and where. We only caught a couple of walleye, both small, but saw a few on the camera and had a friend close by that caught a 10.7 lb eye. We fished approx 5 miles out. The bay is worth fishing anytime there is safe ice. I will be going back this winter for sure. Went to Hubbard on Thursday and met up with GEOWL and his friend. I didn't do a lot of fishing on Thursday due to my auger throttle linkage breaking. I also lost all of Friday morning trying to get it repaired. Finally started fishing Friday afternoon with poor results. The results stayed the same through Sunday with very few walleye located or caught by anyone. The lake was great, 16+" of ice, and nice weather. I put a couple of pics of the bay and Hubbard in my pic gallery. I cut my trip short and called Steelhauler and told him not to waste his time coming up. I fished The Bay for 3 hrs Monday morning on my back to Ohio. My son saw one walleye on the camera that he couldn't get to go and a catfish, sucker, smelt and I don't remember what else. I didn't feel comfortable fishing 5 miles out in the bay, across one major pressure crack, with the rain pouring down so we left a little early. All in all a very fun trip other than the lack of fish, and my maiden trip with my Ranger worked great on the ice, what a great vehicle. I will be going either to Saginaw Bay or to Erie, (ice depending) in a couple of weeks to try again.
