Saginaw Bay: Warm weather over the past 10 days coupled with strong wind is causing ice conditions to deteriorate quickly. This is the time of year when ice becomes extremely unpredictable and dangerous. Anglers need to use extreme caution! The shoreline ice is getting bad. Watch out for pressure cracks and think twice before crossing them. Anglers have been rescued near Pinconning and the mouth of the Saginaw River. Those fishing off Palmer Road caught walleye including some limit catches. Most of the activity was about 1 ½ miles out in 7 to 8 feet inside the first pressure crack. Some nice perch were also caught. Decent size perch and a few walleye were taken in 8 feet near White's Beach. Down off Cody-Estey Road and Pinconning Road, walleye were taken in 14 feet however be extremely careful around the pressure cracks as the ice was not good. A lot of anglers were fishing off the Bay City State Park. Some were going out 3 miles for walleye while others stayed close to shore and caught fish in 4 to 5 feet. The bite was best before 9:30AM. The ice is getting bad near the mouth of the river so avoid the area. Those heading out from Finn Road caught some walleye toward the north end of Spoils Island however stay away from the Hot Pond Channel! Bluegill and crappie were caught inside the marina basin at Sunset Bay. Walleye fishing in the Slot has slowed due to questionable ice conditions. At Sebewaing, the river is getting dirty and those fishing the marina said it was slow. Mud Creek was spotty. Those fishing the east side of the bay need to watch out for large areas of open water near the islands
