Fishing: 03/14/2014

As winter continues, there is still plenty of ice to fish on and there will be for a while.

Traverse City: The East Bay is giving up lake trout and burbot in waters 90 to 150 feet off Deep Water Point and Yuba. Anglers are using jigs, sand kickers and pimples. Some are using tip-ups with a lure and minnow attached. In the West Bay, several nice perch including a few master angler fish were caught off the West Arm launch by those using perch minnows with an orange or chartreuse pimple in 40 to 50 feet. Lake trout were hitting in 135 to 165 feet. Try sand kickers or pimples. Glow and green were good colors.

Green Lake: Is still producing some smelt.

Lake Cadillac: Though ice fishing continues, pike and walleye season will close on Saturday, March 15th. This is the time to target bluegill, crappie and perch with minnows, wigglers or wax worms.

Lake Mitchell: The better fishing has been in and around Big Cove. Pike anglers have done well spearing or with tip-ups.

Manistee River: Lower sections of the river are still iced over however steelhead can be caught anywhere there is open water. Those fishing up near Tippy Dam have caught fish.

Pere Marquette River: The lower section below Custer is still iced over. Those fishing the open water have caught steelhead.
