Attorney, an SLU graduate, researches fish laws

  #
Harold M. "Hal" Thomas likes to tell the story of the fish that got away: Atlantic salmon that used to teem in Lake Ontario and the tributaries of the St. Lawrence River before they were wiped out in the 1800s by gristmills and dams that dotted the rivers. more...

DNR: Anglers should use caution on Michigan's inland lakes as ice continues to build

  #
Ice continues to build, especially on most of Michigan's inland lakes, but anglers are still urged to use caution, the state Department of Natural Resources said Wednesday.

Anglers are advised to avoid pressure cracks because many of them had open water less than a week ago, and ice at river mouths and on creeks is unsafe, the DNR said in its weekly recreational fishing report.  more...

Angler awaits DNA test on record catch

  #
Deaunti Kemp of Flint shows off a 2-pound, 14-ounce fish that is either the new state-record bluegill or world-record hybrid sunfish, depending on what DNA tests reveal. Kemp caught the fish on Lake Nepessing in Lapeer County on Monday.   (KATRINA COBB/Special to the Free Press)

FLINT -- It's amazing what DNA evidence can do -- solve decades-old crimes, settle paternity disputes, even decide whether Deaunti Kemp's huge sunfish is a state-record bluegill or a world-record hybrid.

The 28-year-old Flint angler caught the 2-pound, 14-ounce fish Monday on Lake Nepessing in Lapeer County. He thought it was a bluegill and knew it was big, but it wasn't until he had it weighed at Cobb's Bait and Tackle that he learned it was 2 ounces heavier than the state-record bluegill.   more...

Those fish can hear you

  #

SAGINAW -- Ice fishermen often blame slow fishing on decreased fish. Doug Deming asks, "Don't you think 500 guys dragging sleds over the heads of the fish in six feet of water might have something to do with it?"

Deming owns Fish Point Lodge on Saginaw Bay near Unionville, one of the state's best-known waterfowl lodges. In summer and winter, he offers guided fishing trips for walleyes, traveling over the ice in a closed Argo ORV that has rubber tracks like a tank and floats like a boat, allowing it to cross open leads.  more...

Ice dangers: Frozen waters can be deceiving

  #
The hidden danger of ice could be lurking right underneath your feet and you won't know it until it's too late.

The roads might be clear from last week's snow, but that still doesn't mean you can assume everything is safe. The hidden danger of ice could be lurking right underneath your feet and you won't know it until it's too late.

Scientists say it takes several weeks of freezing temperatures in order for ice to be safe enough to walk on, and even then, there are risks.  more...

Hauling in some big ones

  #

MITCHELL'S BAY -Chris Lewis had bigger fish to fry Sunday morning.

He turned his weekend ice taxi business over to a friend and went fishing in 12 feet of water in Lake St. Clair for a brand new four-wheeler.

The Michigan owner of the costly machine broke through the ice eight kilometres west of Mitchell's Bay while heading to a popular fishing hole.

"Some people just never learn,'' said Lewis, the 38-year-old Mitchell's Bayarea resident, who has been been hauling cars, snowmobiles and four-wheelers out of the frigid lake waters for years.  more...

Carpe diet: How to serve carp

  #
Emperor's Choice doesn't normally serve Illinois River Asian carp on its menu. But when we showed up at the Chinatown restaurant toting more than 15 pounds of the stuff in a plastic bag last Friday, chef Thomas Lui was happy to show us how it would be served on a typical Chinese table. We did call ahead and ask, though. Our meal came out in four courses as follows.

Carp soupWe started with a mild milky carp broth accented with napa cabbage and cubes of silky tofu, the most assertive flavors coming from slender strips of fresh ginger.  more...

So You Want to Be a Fishing Guide?

  #
Becoming a Fishing GuideQuestion: I think I’m a pretty good fisherman, and I’d like to try guiding somewhere out West. How does one go about getting a job with a lodge or a fly shop?

Answer: When I decided that I wanted to spend my summers a fishing guide—I was in graduate school at the time—I didn’t really know how to go about becoming one, so I used a shotgun approach. I applied to literally every lodge and outfitter I could find in Alaska and the Rocky Mountain West. In my cover letter, I explained that, although I had no guiding experience, I would be willing to do grunt work just to get my foot in the door.  more...
