Lake Michigan hot spots shift closer to home

  #
It was a long time coming this year, but now that Lake Michigan's vast waters finally are heating up, so are the catches of salmon and trout.

While there have been occasional limits on charter boats for more than a month, there have been far more days when the fleet has had to burn a lot of fuel searching for widely scattered fish.

In recent days, good numbers of alewives and the predators that seek them have set up shop a lot closer to shore. That's good news not only for boat owners spending $4 a gallon on fuel, but for pier anglers who like to cast spoons or soak bait before sunrise.   more...

Walleye and Wind

  #

Jason Mitchellby Jason Mitchell

The affect of wind on walleye is almost cliché.  Follow the wind or fish the windy shore.  Wind stacks up baitfish and then the walleye follow.  The reality is however that this cliché is only right half the time so this theory is just another half truth.  There are so many scenarios where wind has a negative affect on walleye location and movements.  There are many times where we are more productive avoiding the wind and the more we can recognize just when wind is not good for our fishing efforts, the better anglers we can become.   more...

Changing times on Lake St. Clair

  #
photoBY ERIC SHARP

It was slow. The 43 boats entered in the Michigan Ontario Muskie Club's annual charity tournament for the Special Olympics were picking and pecking at fish, and aboard Shelby Kristy we were mostly just picking.

Two muskellunge had come over the transom, small fish of 24 and 34 inches, the latter fighting so hard and staying deep so long everyone thought it might be a winner.   more...

Adams fly gets a-one rating

  #

photoIf forced to choose one dry fly to fish all the time on all waters, I'd pick the Adams, a fly that Michigan tier Len Halladay concocted to match an insect that angler Charles Adams saw on a pond near Traverse City in 1922. Adams, from Lorain, Ohio, used it that evening on the Boardman River and came back and pronounced it the wonder that most anglers still consider it today.   more...

No warm water, no big bass

  #
BY MATT DEYOUNG

The water's higher than it's been in some time, and temperatures are colder than normal.

It's a strange formula that has wreaked havoc with the somewhat predictable timetables that area fishermen live by this time of year.

A prime example is the largemouth bass fishing in West Michigan. Water temperature on the Grand River and its bayous is around 65 degrees, and the bass, which are normally feeding fairly actively this time of year, simply haven't started their early-summer feasting.   more...

Naturally Spawned 'Tiger' Musky Caught on Lake St. Clair

  #

By: Jerry Kunnath
For about six or more years my son, Captain Steve Kunnath, has been spending some of his non-charter days taking me out on Lake St. Clair in the hope of helping me land a
Great Lakes muskellunge. But alas, even though Steve has an uncanny skill at finding and catching the great ichthyological beasts, I never was able to boat one of the apex predators.   more...

Down-Home Bass

  #
Up on crooked creek in Arkansas, the smallmouth bass really do bite all day long. At night, whip-poor-wills call hauntingly across the Ozark hills. And at the gentle edge of evening between the two, you might also hear hissing sounds as Crazy Mike slaps some steaks on a streamside charcoal fire. Those sizzles signal the end of a perfect day of float fishing for smallmouths.

It's time for bass catch, release

  #
By Eric Sharp

This is what bass anglers in other parts of the country dream about: a 21-inch smallmouth that weights five to six pounds and is just one of dozens that Detroit area anglers routinely catch on a good afternoon during the catch-and-release bass season.

"They (smallmouths) are just crushing Rat-L-Traps and crank baits," said fishing guide Gerry Gostenik, who fished for bass where the Detroit River dumps into Lake Erie. "You can catch them all day long."

DNR proposes raising salmon bag limit

  #
Michigan Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Division officials are seeking public input on a draft proposal to increase the daily bag limit for chinook salmon and coho salmon to five fish per day.

If adopted, the regulation would apply on all Great Lakes and rivers. The regulations currently in place for trout and salmon in all waters of the state set the daily bag limit at five fish in any combination but no more than three of any one species, except that up to five pink salmon may be harvested.

Miami Offshore Fishing Report

  #
Miami Offshore Fishing ReportBy Captain Dave Kostyo

It's time to get caught up with the fishing trips aboard Knot Nancy, so lets get straight to it.

The father and son team of Scott and Nick Osborne sample the good tarpon fishing available in Miami during the winter. We had the conditions to fish both at the Inlets and in the Bay during the same trip. We started at Government Cut where we went 2 for 3. The trip was finished in the Bay where our total was 1 for 3.

Enhancing the States' Lake Management Programs

  #
 Each year for over two decades, State lake program managers have gathered in Chicago to discuss successes, evaluate obstacles, and explore new approaches for improving the States’ lake management programs. Our 2008 program focuses on the importance of fisheries in developing comprehensive lake management strategies. Accordingly, fisheries managers and specialists are encouraged to join us as we examine approaches for enhancing fisheries interactions with other lake management objectives such as water quality, recreation, and overall ecosystem health.
