On a boat your always changing spots looking for fish or playing with your gear. On a pier your waiting for the fish to come to you and we always have 3 rods each in the water and a couple more xtra to put in as soon as we get a fish

Awesome Congratulations

Awesomeness! Great catch nice fish ๐ŸŸ

Rich Carpenter

I love pier fishing. Not wasting time or money on gas and you spend half the time driving around looking for fish. I have 100% faith in pier fishing but still use the boat. My best 25lb + brown from pier on Lake Ontario won new fully loaded boat and 9 grand. Have won so many tournaments this way. No lures or trolling. Live bait only

Beautiful fish !!!!!I hear everybody ask for the seeforellen browns… why can’t we get what we want

Glad they are stocking trout, but I wish they give up on the Wild Rose strain. Such poor returns. The Gilchrist Creek or Sturgeon River Browns offer so much better opportunities. Better yet, bring back those big-ass Seeforellen Browns. Those were Awesome!

Jonathan Ervin

Awesome!

Thanks

They caught atleast 300 bluegills and crappies today, and kept their limits of perfect eaters.

Great Lakes Fisherman’s Digest Reports from Mullet Lake 3-15-23 Indian River/Cheboygan areas
Multi species fishing was awesome on the south end of Mullett Lake for the last day of ice walleye season. I fished with my friend Andrew Hendrickson fromNorthstar Sportfishing guide service and also joined up with Cody Sems from Hardwater adrenaline later in the day. As you can see, we had an awesome time on the ice . We caught a nice variety of fish and some really good ones. Our primary method was fishing flats between 30 and 40 feet of water. We used tip ups with light line and very small treble hooks. The key was using bigger sized minnows to prevent all the small ones from driving you crazy. Banged a bonus walleye as well and as you can see a 55โ€ monster sturgeon. Caught the sturgeon on a tip up with 8 pound test line and it took 25 minutes to get it in. Thanks to Andrew and Cody for a great last day of walleye season. If youโ€™re looking to get out for late season perch fishing, Cody Sems will be doing perch trips until the ice is unsafe. You probably have a good week or so of fishing left. Perching on Maple Bay on Burt has also been productive

Sturgeons can’t be kept from mullet. You didn’t mention that you released that fish. Sure hope you did as a PROFESSIONAL CHARTER FISHERMAN

Good Day with a catch like that.I like LKe perch.

Mille Lacs Monster Pike ties STATE RECORD!

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources certified a catch by angler Brad Lila on Mille Lacs Lake from January 22. He caught and released the pike after measuring it at 46 and ยผ inches. It tied a record set in just 2021 by Illinois fisherman Brecken Kobylecky on Basswood Lake.

Man it just doesn't seem like the year or the time of the year to be driving a truck on the ice.

It's a Dodge, should have left it for fish habitat. Lol

Minor water damage

I would like to see a video of this. Cool

a Dodge owner gonna Dodge owner

Motor appears to be flooded.

Look for this one on carfax in the near future..

If you can't dodge it…Ram it….

It'll buff right out

Oh shit, hold my beer!

I'd buy it still

Eric Wing looks like that dodge we seen driving out there! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™„

As Bill Engvall says here's your sign.

Send it to Florida. It will sell great as a northern truck with no rust.

Can find a decent undercarriage wash anymore…lol

That's one expensive tip up.

Stupid should have been fixed ๐Ÿ™„

Well that sucks

Just junk it. They rust out in 5 years so now this one will be rusted out by next year.๐Ÿ˜‰

I bet that was worth it for a few dink perch ๐Ÿ˜‚

Sweet.

Cedar Hedge skunked me for Crappie, only two fisherman on the ice besides me. Great Ice but not marking any fish where they usually are.

I haven’t caught a Crappie through the ice in years. But I have sight fished them in the shallows as the water warms up. That is so effective that I only catch and release these spawning fish.

JP reports from Cadillac 3-7-23 Cadillac area
I Went for another after work trip for the evening crappie bite
Got set up by 5 pm and fished til 8:30
I was picking off a few nice perch during daylight hours and a keeper pike
The bite picked up for crappies around 6:00-6:20 and picked some off throughout the night
First eye was caught on a flag around 7:30 pm
Everything was caught on perch minnows and blues
Dropper rigs with a minnow and dead stick setups worked well also
Donโ€™t be afraid to fish later after dark the bite is good ๐Ÿฅถ๐ŸŽฃ๐ŸŽฃ
Find edges of weed beds around sunken islands
I live on the lake and walk out and there’s plenty of ice for that and colder days coming!
