Traverse City Record-Eagle

Fishing: 03/28/2014

The area has more snow and continued frigid temperatures which is making ice, not melting it! Ice fishing continues like it has for the last four months.

Traverse City: Those fishing the East Bay have caught lake trout in 80 to 150 feet off Deepwater Point. Most are jigging sand kickers or white Swedish pimples. The West Bay had slower catch rates but lake trout, cicso and whitefish were caught in 96 feet near the pressure crack which is out from the boat launch on M-22.

Boardman River: Anglers are starting to see some steelhead.

Lake Cadillac: Cold temperatures and more snow are not the signs of spring that most anglers are looking for. Very few have been out and trying for panfish. The ice is still thick. Anglers are using extensions on their augers or looking for pre-drilled holes.

Manistee River: Has steelhead but we are still waiting for that big push that comes in the spring. Anglers caught fish on spawn, wax worms and wobble glows.

Pere Marquette River: Steelhead fishing is viable for those hardy enough to endure the January like conditions. The spring push has not yet started but fresh fish are starting to trickle in.
