Gino’s/L’Anse Creuse Bay: Fishing has been steady for most of our diehard customers. Most people are sticking the canals and marinas. Yesterday a few people did work out a little ways into the lake in the area. USE EXTREME CATION the ice thickness is not consist right now out there.
Spillway:A few guys have gotten out on to the spillway, fishing has been spotty. Most have not checked other areas in the spillway yet. They all seem to be holding up together in on area.USE EXTREME CATION the ice thickness is not consist right now.
Metro: Some are reporting very steady action on perch and gills but sorting has been needed. There also seems to be a peak hour early and late that will produce more large fish in this area.
Selfridge:No solid info has come in.
Fair Haven /Bouvier Bay: I have gotten some very good reports of guys doing well on Gills and Perch. Guys have started to work there way out onto the lake in areas. Ice Thickness isn’t consist so use a spud and take your time.USE EXTREME CATION the ice thickness is not consist right now.
Well there have been some guys fishing off the shore and getting some perch and sunfish. Guys have been catching some perch off the pier by the Coast Guard station behind Blossom Heath. They have been using perch rigs with minnows, but have been catching a lot of small fish. There have also been some reports coming from the point off of Metro each, but the fish have also been on the small size there as well. The colder temps have made some ice in the Metro back basin and some guys have been venturing out on it. Mostly reports of small sunfish coming from that area. Unfortunately not a great report, but there are some fish being caught. There are a couple docks in at the Crocker launch and a few guys have been getting boats out. Reports have been scattered on the perch with some guys heading up to Gino’s and taking a few fish. Good luck and be safe.
As most of you have noticed the ice is gone. Talk about a short ice fishing season. Who knows if we’ll get ice for the rest of winter. Oh well, let hit the soft water. I have been hearing reports of fisherman jigging the Detroit River already. I also have got reports that guys are catching walleye from that same Detroit River. The problem many are having is finding a place to launch their boats. The launch at Crocker is open, but as of a few days ago the docks were not in. This is a long ride down to the Detroit River. I’ve made it and it’s a miserably cold ride.
Perch off-shore. I’ve heard of some shore fishermen catching perch on perch rigs, but the fish have been small. Try anywhere you can find open water. Guys have been using minnows.
That’s it for now. What a crazy winter. Be careful out there fishermen
