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.
