The U.P. of Michigan Fishing Reports
Upper Peninsula Fishing Report - February 28th, 2014
Posted on Thu, 27 Feb 2014
Walleye fishing has been pretty good on Munuscong Bay in 2 to 8 feet of water. Pike are hitting in Lake Huron at Cedarville, and a few jumbo perch have been caught, too. Coyotes are moving onto the bays and bigger lakes, but hunting has been tough with up to 3 feet of snow on the ground and on the ice.
Drummond Island Area
Perch fishing has been slow around Drummond Island. Pike fishing has been decent in Scotts Bay where spearers report good action in 6 feet of water. Up to 3 feet of snow in the woods has put a damper on bunny hunting, but coyote hunting has been good.
Walleye fishing has slowed on Lake Michigan’s Little Bay de Noc, and fishing pressure has been light. Anglers need a snowmobile to access the bay because there is over 2 feet of snow on the ice.
Iron Mountain Area
Fishing has been slow and fishing pressure light in Iron County. There was several inches of slush on the ice and travel has been difficult. Hunting pressure has been light.
Lake trout fishing remains fantastic in Lake Superior’s Keweenaw Bay. Fish are being caught in 100 to 400 feet of water, with the best action coming in 200 feet of water or more. The salmon and whitefish bites have been slow. There was up to 4 feet of snow in the woods last week, which has put a damper on coyote hunting.
Fishing remains pretty good on Lake Gogebic. Perch anglers report catching good numbers of jumbos on wigglers fished in 22 to 26 feet of water. Warmer weather last week perked up the fish and anglers. Walleye action has been fair, with the best bite coming on sucker minnows fished in 24 to 26 feet of water. Hunting pressure has been light.
