Cheboygan is the Tip of the Mitt. The main Lakes in Cheboygan County are Mullet, Burt, and the North end of Black Lake. These lakes are legendary for walleye, perch, and the sturgeon reaching 6 feet in legnth. Douglas Lake has very good population of aggressive northern pike.

Shot this photo of white lake from Armstrongs on the Lake as quite a few fishing for gills with waxworms working best.

THe salmon run is getting close to done as the fish are really get black and ugly looking. Good news as some steelhead are showing up in many of the rivers.

Perch fishing remain good on Lake Leelanau and Glen Lake. Grand Traverse Bay are still been hit and miss for perch.

Long lake, Skegemog, manistee lake, and lake margrethe have reported some perch but very little pressure.

Gills have been fair in Houghton Lake, some perch out of Higgins Lake.

Drummond Island is reporting good catches of perch when they can get out.

Little Bay de Noc: Anglers fishing out of Kipling had some success with perch, although a good deal of sorting for keepers was needed. An assortment of night crawlers and minnows were used in depths of around 14 feet of water. Walleye fishing out of the Ford River and out of Kipling had only limited success. Schools seemed to be relatively widely scattered. Some salmon were spotted in the rivers.

Big Bay de Noc: Walleye anglers were fishing out of Nahma with marginal success. Smallmouth anglers were catching fish in deep water. Some anglers were using live bait out of Fayette. Anglers were also catching pike.

Saginaw Bay: Limits of yellow perch were caught at Linwood in 13 feet of water, at the Old Shipping Channel in 14 feet of water and one mile northeast of Spoils Island in 16 feet of water. Perch were also caught at Spoils Island on the east and west of the island.
