This winter did not turn out the way had hoped, the ice on the lake just never got a chance this winter. 2025 will hopefully give us the temps we need to form solid ice.

If you have already paid for your registration for the 2024 Derby please reach out to us in regards to a refund.

We will plan on the 2025 Derby taking place again on Free Fishing Weekend (to be announced once the DNR sets their dates for 2025)

Stay safe if you are heading out on any lakes and we will see you all at the next derby!

No new fish weighed in this morning. It is so much warmer than yesterday I hope the contestants are out there hitting it hard. Hopefully the kids are able to get out today. See MoreSee Less

If you have your sled or shack stored here this would be a good weekend to pick them up if you are done fishing.
Warm weather next week will make it very, very muddy here.

As far as the ice and fishing goes—it’s been slow for walleye and good for perch.

There is 1-8 inches of ice. Move cautiously and drill your way out there. Thickness is very inconsistent and changes over very short distances.

Stay away from structures, islands, and points!

Nice catch

Nice catch 🪝

Got my first of the day here on lake Mitchell

C'mon man

No wonder a guy can't catch anything out that lake, keeping 4" perch is really dumb

Guys are finally getting back out today on Skegemog reports 4.5 inches walking only with a spud. Manistee Lake by Kalkaska had open water yesterday but last night 6 degrees froze it back up so the lake is sketchy with those open spots refreezing.

Bear lake between Kalkaska and Graying has 5 to 6inches.

Have you heard anything about portage lake

Thanks Buc. Looking to drive up this weekend.

Sarah Carter

Thank you for all the suggestions. We have decided that the contest will still be held this next weekend February 24th and 25th and will include all open waters in Manistee and Benzie county. This will include inland lakes, rivers and streams. We want to see some BIG fish coming in to be weighed. The contest can be entered in store, by phone with a card, or on our website online store page. See MoreSee Less

We sure never had to figure out a Plan B for our contest. We are looking for creative suggestions on how to give these prizes away. Do we include open water fishing? Bear Lake has held the ice for 80% with the center 20% opening up. The next 3 days of cold will help but we doubt will do much for Portage or Manistee Lakes as they are wide open now. We want everyone to be safe out there so what is creative for us to see some fish being caught. See MoreSee Less

I'm in! Who ever thought we would be fishing an ice fishing tournament in February from a boat? Crazy.

Portage lake took a beating with the warm weather! The long term forecast looks much better with milder days and colder nights. The lake already froze some new clear ice. We’ll update later this week if the ice gets better! You can call the shop for the latest fishing report See MoreSee Less
