Paul Mazur that's what I'm saying I'm not understanding why they're fishing shanties are so close to shore the water is not deep along the shoreline

Chris Lees yeah been over there many times on the boat, not very deep. Lots of rocks in that area.

Paul Mazur they're fishing brown and rainbow trout in the shallows

Good luck People

Yet another report that burns a small lake.

Greg from Lake Leelanau narrows bait and tackle just gave me an update on Lake Leelanau open water spots by kelinski point and down near Solon/perrins froze a few days ago. Wouldnโ€™t recommend anyone take machines on the ice yet, it froze very inconsistently this year. Most spots are 4-6โ€ that froze a couple weeks back.
Spud your way out wherever you go, thickness varies and were Loaded up on bait!
Open 7 days! call (231) 624-6201 Ice fishing . #Icefishing #icefishinglife #icefishingnation #puremichiganfishing #livebait #livebaitfishing #bucsbait #bucsfishingreport #puremichigan #fishingreports #michiganfishing #icefishingmichigan #northernmichiganfishing #fishing

Perch Photo was out of Skegemog today and the shore ice is better with 4 to 5 inches and you need a spud as still some sketchy spots.

Green Lake by Interlochen a few a getting out on the north end but be careful as there were open spots a week ago. South end just froze over.

Duck Lake by Interlochen has quite a few guys out on Strawberry point catching pike and panfish.

Long Lake by Traverse has some getting out on the north end, crescent shores was reported still soft spots and just walking with a spud.

Otsego Lake by gaylord bite has slowed down but the ice is in great shape, many are fishing chub lake for trout.

Kalkaska reports Manistee Lake is still producing with great ice, bear Lake they have been catching browns on blues but please spud your way out. Starvation lake is producing trout pike and perch. Twin Lake has been good for smelt.

Burt Lake has been fair with most fishing the north end.

Mullet Lake they are fishing the north end but a snowmobile did go though this week as it just froze.

Higgins Lake the south end has up the 6 inches but use caution, North end just froze so it is not safe a few off of samuset but it goes from 6 inches to 2 inches so you need a spud.

Houghton Lake has been fair for perch, walleye, gills and pike.

Saint Helen has good ice and have been fair bite this week,

Black lake has been good this week and the sturgeon season is saturday. Black Lake ice update. CAUTION. I received a report of ice that was only about 4โ€ on the southwest side of the lake. I donโ€™t have the exact location but was told it was between 5 mile point and the U A W center Please be extra careful in that area Get registered for the Shivaree Ice Fishing Contest this weekend!!

Big Platte Lake is not safe and did not see any tracks out on the lake.

Crystal Lake froze but hopefully the wind did not open it up.

Portage Lake was good last weekend for pike, perch gills and a few walleye.

Good ice around clare, farewell, and Harrison with a fair bite.

Buc's Northern Michigan Fishing Report where is strawberry point on the duck lake map? My husband and I want to fish that area, we just moved to the area so scoping out the best fishing spots tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

Gun Lake ?

We literally sat at a bar last night debating either going to Otsego or Starvation Lake area for our yearly trip. This report could not have come at a better time. And putting them right next to each other… its fate

They need a bigger boat launch. People were already parking on the side of the road two weeks ago

Wow thanks now that is a report. Bayou’s here in lower west Michigan are starting to freeze pretty good

Thanks for the report. Much appreciated!

Silver lake dnr launch 3 to 5 inches

Nice catch!
