Bait-shops in Roscommon, Alger, and Ogemaw County

Roscommon County has the Largest inland lake in Michigan Houghton Lake. This lake is one of the best producers of panfish in the state of Michigan. It also has a good population of walleye and pike. Higgins Lake is the King for ice fishing when it freezes in the middle of January. The target fish are perch and smelt which they catch by the bucket on Hali’s. This lake has a huge population of lake, brown, and rainbow trout, it is the place to be in the late winter when the shallow lakes are not producing. Ogemaw County Main lakes are Peach, Sage, Clear, Lake George, Rifle, and Hardwood lake. Lots of fisherman head to Lake St. Helen which is just across the line in Roscommon as it produces lots of fish in the winter.

South Lake Leelanau Ice is solid pretty much everywhere, sleds and quads getting out all over The bite has been getting better With decent reports of perch and walleye North Lake Leelanau Ice is still thin on the majority of the lake, haven’t heard any reports of people fishing it yet Should be good to go after this cold weekend Any questions/guided trips get a hold of Greg at Lake Effect Fishing Charters and Lake Leelanau Narrows Resort Bait & Tackle (231) 624-6201

Lake Mitchell & Lake Cadillac
We’re going to be sharing the lakes with a bunch of snowmobile racers this weekend. Races are going to be staged on the East side of Lake Mitchell behind Lakeside Charlies. The West side of Lake Mitchell and Lake Cadillac should be good to go for fishing however.
