    Did you see the two ships that tried to dock on Saturday but got stuck?
    Someone posted the coast guard warning about the two ships on Friday and Sunday's paper had a blurb about sending a an ice cutter to free two ships that got stuck trying to turn around.

  3. No. we kept en eye out all day but didn't see them,although I was pretty busy keeping up with 2 rods.I saw the warning and talked to the guys at the b.a.c bait shop that warned us too.I had all my gear in the shanty ready to run if i had too but it was all good.
  4. Perch typically bite in the bay late ice. There is a resident population in the Bay but perch will move in from the main lake before ice out and that is typically the best bite.
