I hope the storm misses us with all that wind. Most the lakes have good ice now in Northern Michigan but still be careful. Torch and Crystal lake are still open.

Higgins Lake has been good for smelt, trout, pike, and finding bigger perch has been a challenge but some have found them.

Houghton Lake has been good for walleye, gills, and surprisenly a good perch bite. Pike fishing has been slow but nicer pike this year.

Pratt Lake, Wiggins, Sugar Springs and Secord are producing pike and panfish.

Lake Missaukee has good ice with gills, pike and a few walleyes biting.

Harrison, farwell and Clare have had lots of people out this week fishing with fair success.

Long Lake by Traverse has been slow on walleye but many are reporting some nice perch. Green Lake has been producing some pike and a few smelt.

Mullet, Burt and Black have lots of people fishing, with perch, pike and walleye biting.

Lake Saint Helen has been fair for pike and gills.

Capt Chucks in Ludington is reporting those heading out tomorrow on PM Lake please advise!!!! The tug and barge are headed to OXY. Hamlin Lake has been fair for gills, pike and walleye.

Armstrongs on white Lake reports There’s 8”+\- around our docks. We’ve spotted machines all along the south side of the lake as well.

Saginaw River is going strong but lots of small walleye.

This week we had beeter reports out of Skegemog as some have fopund bigger perch. They are fishing Elk Lake this week.

Otsego Lake has still been slow with many in the area fishing Bradford and Chub lake.

Lake Margrethe is still producing good pike , walley, perch and some gills.
