Walleye fishing remains pretty good on Munuscong Bay where there was over 24 inches of ice under a foot of snow. Perch and pike fishing also has been good on the bay. Decent perch and pike action has come to anglers fishing on Lake Huron around the Les Cheneaux Islands. There was about 2 feet of snow in the woods last week, and coyote hunters were reporting good success.

Perch fishing is heating up and anglers are still catching good numbers of walleyes on Big and South Manistique lakes. Fair numbers of northern pike have been caught, too, when the weather warms up enough to allow anglers to get out. There was about 2 feet of snow on the ground last week. Coyote hunting has been pretty good with lots of song dogs in the area.

Whitefish have moved into Green Bay and anglers are dialing in. Those fishing in anywhere from 10 to 40 feet of water are finding fish. Minnows, cut bait, and wax worms are all producing good results. Inland lake fishing has been slow. There was only about 3 to 4 inches of snow on the ground last week. Coyote hunting has been fair.

Lake trout and salmon are keeping anglers happy on Lake Superior’s Keweenaw Bay. A few steelhead and brown trout are starting to show up, and occasionally an angler will pull a splake through the ice. There was up to 2 feet of snow in the woods last week. Hunting pressure has been light.

Perch and walleye action has improved on Lake Gogebic now that the mercury has moved above zero. Anglers fishing with sucker minnows and jigging Rapalas are catching good numbers of walleyes in 20 to 28 feet of water. Those fishing with wigglers and spikes are picking up some nice perch in the same areas. Lake travel is good; snowmobiles are best.

Fishing pressure has been very light in Iron County with frigid weather keeping anglers indoors. Good numbers of whitefish and lake trout have been caught on Chicagon Lake when it warms up enough to get out on the lake.
