Fishing Report

Warmer weather continues to increase the action in surrounding lakes. It also means that ice can be slightly thinning, so be sure to take all necessary steps when setting up. Remember that some of the area lakes are also marked with barrels for snowmobiles. Be sure to punch your holes away from the trail areas.

Reminder: Heads up that the date for permanent ice shack removal from MI boundary waters is March 15th and the area inland waters is March 31st.  Wisconsin’s removal is to be done by March 18th.

Reminder: Gamefish season in Wisconsin closed March 4th and boundary water lakes closed March 1st (such as Lac Vieux Desert and some of the Cisco Chain).

Panfish: Bluegills are being found in the weeds using small jigs tipped with waxies, spikes or tipped with plastic.  Perch are being caught on the deep weed edge where the mud meets. Crappies are being caught in the weeds mixed in with some gills and are still out suspended over the deeper holes and mudflats.

Information for this week’s fishing report was provided by Colin Crawford from Colin Crawford’s Guide Service.
