Does this sound logical? in Ice fishing Posted December 23, 2008 I agree with bosco. I live about 1 mile from IBay and it is very easy to tow my boat to the launch. It gets pretty busy on summer weekends, tho. I like the off-season better. The last three Falls (Oct. & Nov.) the perch fishing has been fantastic with lots of big perch. Twice I have run out of bait and I can be very selective on what I keep. I only got out ice fishing about 3 times last winter, but am retiring in Jan. and expect to spend much more time on the ice this year. I haven't heard very much about walleyes through the ice at IBay, but will stay posted to this section to see how you make out. Any tips on open water locations, bait choices and techniques for 'eyes would be appreciated, too.
