Well, it's that time of year, again! :dance: :beer:

Just looking for some ice reports from the inland lakes. Had several people heading out this weekend. Mostly up near Gwinn and Iron Mountain areas. Haven't had any reports back, yet. Anyone have any good info for me?

Lake Michigan / Time for big pike
« on: October 07, 2017, 04:23:24 PM »
Today's conditions are screaming "big pike time!" Overcast, south wind, falling barometer and water temps. I know if I was feeling better, that's what I'd be doing, right now. Find yourself a good weed bed and start trolling some big, musky sized spinners or crankbaits. This is one of the best times of the year for a shot at a 40+ inch slimer!

Speaking of big slimers, my dad put his good friend Max Hurd on this 41 inch pike back in September. His biggest one ever! Got it on a sucker minnow under a slip bobber in the Escanaba harbor. After a few quick pics, it was released.

Nice one, Max!

Walleye / Esky River eyes
« on: June 05, 2017, 12:20:17 PM »
Fished the Escanaba River last night with my buddy, Bruce. We were mainly looking to catch smallmouth, throwing shallow running crankbaits. The bass bite SUCKED! I think they're right in the middle of spawning, and have more important things on their little fishy brains. Luckily, the walleyes are well past that, and were willing to play a little bit. We ended up catching 10, and lost a few more. 4 of the fish were between 16 and 20 inches, so we both ended the night with enough fish for a meal.
