Saginaw River Ice Fishing 1/9/14

Saginaw River catch and release 20 FOW
Saginaw River catch and release

Made it out on the Saginaw River after work today and had a good time.  I setup in 20 FOW and started fishing at 4pm.  Hooked my first fish at quarter after four and the bite went strong till dark.  I landed six fish 15 to 16 inches and lost several.  Minnows on slick jigs and spoons with minnow heads worked great.  The ice conditions are very good and so is the fishing.  Lots of fishermen on the river reporting good catches.    Good Luck....
